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?

Yes, but generally only Russian or Kazakh language. - Oct 19, 2017
There is a preschool that families use and are quite happy with. Cost was very reasonable but I can't remember off the top of my head. It is a Kazakh school and they learn Kazakh, Russian and English. They also offer a Kinder program for 5 year olds. - Jun 18, 2014
Yes-no personal experience. - Sep 13, 2010
There is a preschool at MIRAS, but it can be hard to get in to (it's rather full). Many families hire nannies. - Jul 20, 2008
