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?

Again no personal experience, but most people with young children hire full-time, live-in nannies. I'd guess that this runs about US$400/month though I'm sure it varies. - Jun 7, 2015
There are local options that are good. They are around US$325 a month. - Apr 23, 2014
I don't really know about preschools, but domestic help is cheap here so many people hire nannies. - Mar 11, 2008
