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?

We highly recommend the Little Explorers preschool. Others in the community use Beanstalk or Owl's Nest but for many reasons we liked Little Explorers better. It is not cheap but this preschool is worth it. It has an after-school program as well. - Aug 11, 2016
Yes. Most mission member use the Owls Nest. From what I'm told, they just raised their prices and no longer give an option for 2 days a week. - May 4, 2014
Most people have a live-in nanny. - Apr 24, 2012
Yes, and surprisingly good. A number of preschools are available but they are quite expensive. Most cater to the expat community. - Aug 9, 2011

One of our children is in the German Swiss International School Nursery. He likes it a lot. Many other schools locally offer preschool:Little Explorers, Brilliant Stars, Gingerbread House, Twinkle Tots and Buzy Beez are just a few. - Feb 24, 2010
