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?

QSI-Minsk has a preschool and it costs about US $7700/year. Some expat families have used local Belarusian preschools. They seem to be happy with the local preschool. It costs US $400/month for a half-day and US $600/month for a full-day. - Apr 2019

QSI has a preschool starting at age three, though I did hear of an exception they made for a two-and-a-half year old. It's a half-day program, and they eat lunch there. We haven't bothered to send our three-and-a-half year old, so I can't comment on it. There are also some local ones, but like the local schools, they're in Russian. - Oct 2011
