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, on the US side. They were about 40% the cost of Washington metropolitan area and better in our opinion. - Apr 2018

Yes, the preschool is the best thing about this tour. We had 3 kids in preschool on the Mexican side. Pabellon Infantil has been the best daycare we have found in 3 moves. The owners are Americans and the staff is great. They really care about the kids and are easy to work with. When we picked up our kids each day they were clean and happy. They really enjoyed going to school. The school also potty trained. The school is 100% Spanish, but our kids picked it up quickly and now speak fantastic Spanish, albeit with a mexican accent. We paid less monthly for 3 kids than we paid weekely for 1 in NoVA. The school is close to the Consulate and housing and in a relatively safe area. The school understands the security situation and has worked with RSO in the past, we never felt the kids were unsafe while at school. We can't say enough good things about the preschool. - Aug 2015

It's available and used by other employees. I've never heard any complaints. - Feb 2012
