Yerevan - 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?

Yes, you can use a local preschool. They are affordable and some teachers speak English. A nanny is your best bet for before and after school care. - Jan 2022

No experience with preschool, but all are in Armenian. Not expensive. - Aug 2021

Yes. Rainbow is an English speaking preschool that many expats send their kids to. There are other options but I don't have much experience in this area. - Oct 2014

Yes, but I do not know too much about them to comment. - Sep 2011

There are some cooperative pre-schools. We sent our kids to a small preschool run by an Armenian-American expat during our first year here, and were quite happy with it. - Oct 2009

Embassy families tended to band together to create their own daycares or to hire nanny support to tend to their children. There were one or two daycare center operators available on the local market. Our experience was that Armenian moms and grandmoms stayed at home and looked after the children while the fathers were at work. - Jul 2008

There are a number of reasonable daycare options and a couple of preschool groups. My friends who have little ones are quite happy with the availability. - Jan 2008
