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 local subsidized preschools starting close to age three, and other private day cares. We don't have kids that age but people seem to be happy with them. After school care can be tricky. The international school has some afterschool activities, but not a general after chool program. Families with two working parents or single parents should plan ahead for this. - Aug 2023

Like everything here, it is expensive. Few options in only English like Island Gan and Treehouse. We sent our daughter to the local preschool because it's free. It runs 8am-2pm with an option to pay for afterschool care until 5pm. - Sep 2021
