San Juan - Post Report Question and Answers

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 many preschools available, some in home and some in centers. We chose to send our 3 year old to PPP (Parent's Participation Preschool) located on the same campus as The American Military Academy in Guaynabo. The school is mostly taught in English, though our daughter picked up a lot of Spanish there as well. The teachers and assistants were kind and loving with the children. It was not what I was expecting from a 'parenting participation' standpoint. I guess I had expected a bit more of a hands-on atmosphere, where we would be expected to volunteer in the classroom. Instead, we volunteered on committees and to be quite honest they pretty much only wanted us to decorate and donate $$$. There wasn't any real time spent actually helping out in the classroom. - Jun 2013
