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?

Many options and most are good. You can also hire a nanny. - Oct 2021

Yes. - Sep 2020

Yes, great options abound. Bambino, Tutor Time, New Zealand, etc. We looked at nine different places before selecting our preferred choice. - Feb 2018

Yes- Bambino was one. It was not that cheap-about $1000 for 8 weeks? So US$4,000 per year and it was from 8:30-11:30 or 12 only. But very good. - Jan 2015

There are many English-speaking nursery schools. They are a bit expensive, but you do feel that you are getting good value for the cost. - Jan 2013

People had nannies for very reasonable prices. Some are willing to live in, if you have the room. There are few preschools, but I don't have first-hand knowledge of them. - Jul 2011

I know that there is frustration with pre-schools. There are several but there are waiting lists for the good ones. Some people form groups and then send their ayahs (pembantus) with the child. - Jul 2011

People use their household staff for daycare. I've not seen preschools. - Dec 2010

No pre-school daycare. Families employ servants for child care and most live in. - Nov 2010
