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?

Preschool is available, at USD3500/year from age 2-5, mornings only. My son loves it. Nanny day carers/cleaners are very easily available at USD400- USD600 per month. They are mostly from the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia; some are refugees from Sudan or Somalia. - Oct 2010

Private Kindergardens in English and French are available, cost is more expensive than in Europe, or let's say, for half-day Kindergarden you pay here what you would pay for a full-day Kindergarden in Europe. Nannies, mostly from South-East Asia and Sri Lanka are available, quality varies, but many of them are really great. - Aug 2008
