Are preschools available? Day care? Are these expensive? What has been your experience with them, if any? Do the schools provide before- and/or after-school care?

Nannies are cheap, and several preschools exist. I haven't used them. - May 2, 2017
Yes, but my experience is limited. - Oct 24, 2016
See above answer but if I had young kids I wouldn't bring them to Cambodia because there are too many observed and reported crimes involving children as victims (think pedophiles, seriously). - May 18, 2015
No expat preschools available for kids under 18 months, probably because most foreigners have a nanny. After 18 months, there are a number of options. A full-time nanny is relatively cheap, but price varies depending on language skills, experience, and, frankly, what you want to pay. See below for more on that. - Jan 16, 2012
Nannies very popular and affordable. Hard to train, knowledge of English very limited - Aug 6, 2011
iCan is excellent. Private nannies are easily available and very reasonably priced. - Feb 27, 2008
