Vientiane - 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?

Younger children go to Santisouk Montessori or Toukata. They are not as expensive as VIS. People seem to like both schools. - Mar 2024

Yes, they are available although they are not necessarily 100% in English. We had a good experience at two different preschools. - Jun 2020

Yes, but I don't have experience with preschools. The Vientiane International School has many after school activities. - Oct 2018

There are a few preschools with 2-3 Montessori schools. Santisouk Montessori is where my youngest went and it was good. If I had to do it again I would have put him in Alpha. I served on the Board for Santisouk and the Lao teachers were very caring of the children at the school. The advisor at the time was from Australia, I believe, and she was very instrumental in setting higher standards during the time I served on the board. Nannies can be hired for daily childcare, including nights and weekends. - Jan 2014
