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?

Preschools are available but, as we haven't used them, I do not know the cost. Many families hire nannies for 10 euro/hour. There are after school activities available from the schools, but no bus service for students participating in those services. - Jan 15, 2017
International preschools are available. I don't have experience with this personally, but families I know have enrolled their kids in Flopsy Bunnies (Halandri), Junior Einsteins (Halandri), Learning Steps (a Montessori school in Kifissia), Tender Age (Kifissia), and Mary Poppins (Filothei) - Dec 20, 2016
Many, many preschools; very costly. - Sep 7, 2013

We use a Sri Lankan babysitter one day a week and one night or so a week. We pay her 7 euros an hour. - Jun 20, 2008
