Baku - 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?

Lots of options for English, Russian, and Azeri. We just used the TISA preschool, which was pretty good, although terribly expensive. If my wife didn't work there we probably wouldn't have sent our son there because of the cost, which is equivalent to some universities. - Jun 2021

Great preschools available in English, Russian, and Azerbaijani. They offer much more than the States and are much cheaper. - Jan 2019

Both TISA and BIS offer pre-school classes in English, starting at three years. Not sure about the current prices at TISA, but at BIS we paid around US$8300 per preschool year with school hours from 8.45am-1.30pm. A few other parents send their kids to Azerbaijani/Russian preschools for a lot less money. - Jul 2018

Both schools offer preschool, but it is fairly expensive. There are other options around town. Both schools also have after school activities. - Mar 2017

There are several pre-school and daycare options - English-speaking and local schools. I have no experience, however. - Jan 2013

When we first arrived the QSI school offered pre-school and we have no complaints. - Oct 2009

Yes. Pre-schools tend to expect a little more from children (such as not scribbling on paper, being quiet in lines, etc.) kind of strick when dealing with 3 year olds but overall not too bad. - Nov 2008

Available but I don't have info. - Sep 2008
