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?

The Overseas School has a preschool, and there is an American preschool that many embassy families use. - Sep 28, 2017
Plenty of preschools, two specifically that most expats send their kids to: the American Preschool & a Montessori school (can't remember the name). - Mar 20, 2017
There are three preschools that the expat community uses: First Step (where I send my daughter, the director is from California), The American Preschool, and the International Children's House. All have their benefits and families seem happy with all of them. - Sep 28, 2013
No experience with this as I am single; however I know most families have a full-time maid/nanny. - Dec 7, 2011
There are plenty of preschools. Lots of Montessori schools. I have a child at the Pre-OSC and that has been a good experience. This school will close down in the summer of 2010 and the children will move to the main campus outside of town. - Feb 8, 2010
Yes e.g., OSC,and other good Montessori schools. - Feb 26, 2008
