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?

Pre-schools are available but I don't have experience with them. - Nov 2017

Lots of preschools - many Mission folks like Casa gli Bambini - and they are not very expensive, as I understand it. Don't know about before/after-school care. - Jan 2017

There are lots of pre-schools and day-cares around. Cost can run around K4000 ($400) per term. Not bad at all. - Jun 2016

Some preschools are available but I am not sure of the cost. Many people also employ nannies to help with child care. - May 2016

There are not many options but I've heard of three who people really like it and the cost is about US$4,000/year. - Aug 2014

Yes, but most just have a full-time nanny now that the American School doesnt offer it anymore. Most parents have come together to form play groups that meet at different homes two or three times a week. - Jan 2014

Yes, AIS is most expensive in town, and other schools don't want Americans because they think our kids should be at AIS! - Mar 2009

No experience here, though there are plenty of places with waiting lists. - Mar 2009

Available. ISL and AIS have them. There are many others, check on quality. - Oct 2008
