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?

There are plenty of picks for preschools, but they are very expensive (university pricing of about $12,000 minimum per year! Then add a nanny to get the kids from there at 2 or 3pm if both parents work or mono-parental). Some families chose a Hungarian preschool because it was a 5-minute walk from the embassy (and of course much cheaper). - Dec 12, 2017
There are plenty of picks for preschools, but they are pricy (comparative to the DC area). I found a "good deal" for $300/month for 3 mornings a month. - Jan 23, 2012

There are many options -- families with younger children seem happy with preschools. Some have had good luck with nannies. - Feb 24, 2008
