Rabat - 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 on pre-schools. Most people have nannies for childcare either local Moroccans or Filipina expats. - May 2022

There is a wide variety of preschool available, largely French-speaking. - Apr 2018

They are available, and a lot of parents hire housekeepers/nannies to do child care. Household help is about $20/day; I have no idea about pre-schools. - Oct 2017

There are TONS of creches in the city. Prices are reasonable, and the quality varies. Do your homework. - Oct 2017

I hear they are available but most folks I know use nannies. - Jul 2014

For the littlest ones, most people use an in-home nanny/maid, as the cost is cheap and the quality decent. For 3 and 4 year olds, there have been various options, including some in-home preschools run by expats and various private English, English/French and French/Arabic choices. Generally, if you pay less (say $200/month), you get 20 kids in a room and a lot of chaos. If you pay more (maybe $400-600/month), you get better quality. - Nov 2011

It is available but you need to get on the list as soon as you know you will be coming. It is expensive. Ms. Elizabeth's is a favorite with the English speaking ex-pat community. - Sep 2011
