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?

Limited English language preschool options depending on where you live. Kindy International is popular on the west side of town, and The Learning Tree, as well as Magical World on the east side. Most function as a daycare model, not as preschool. - Apr 8, 2016
Yes, there are 3 to choose from and we have heard good and bad things about them all. Nannies are also a viable option and pretty reasonably priced (about US$8-10 per hour). - Feb 18, 2014
The AISZ preschool is the only English speaking preschool. However, there is a nice Croatian speaking preschool called "Brat Sunca". - Oct 16, 2010
There are limited English-speaking preschools: 3 main ones, and the one at AISZ.All are in the Northern hills. AISZ is ridiculously expensive for a preschool that is nothing better than an average preschool you'd find in the States. The other options are also quite expensive (US$350+ for just a few mornings a week, up to almost US$500 for full-day, 5-day programs). These schools are...okay. They are fine, the teachers are fine. But not great for the price. Facilities are VERY small, making the schools not as comfortable and functional as you'd want. - Mar 23, 2009
