Look for a Polidynamo day care centers. Thats where my son goes and its run by the Cyprus Government and he has been gone from 1 years old.

There is one in Yeroskipou and in Peyia. So there must be more in other towns too!

I dont think that they take any kids younger than 3 years old. I can only say the same thing: Im sending my daughter this year to government school and i also paid 45 Euros because she is not 4 yet. She is going to school on 15th of September and she will close 4 on 31 of October and they still want money).
Hope my information will be useful!!!

Just remember with Gov nursery they also close the same days as big schools, so in the summer hols and on religous holidays days etc of which there are a lot, they will be closed and if you work you will need some one to take care your little one...and thats the only negative thing i can say about Gov nursery..

I think you have made a great decision evangelismos, as I said our children have been in the governmental nursery and they have had such a wonderful educational experience in a warm encouraging environment. I have nothing but praise for the teachers. In my opinion wanting the best for your child is not always about splashing the cash! Good luck :0)

Thanks for all opinions. What I think now, the governmental nursery is not worse than private. I know I can save money if children would go to governmental. My elder daughter is 2 and a half and I didn't see children in her group doing something extraordinary than children in other nursery. I mean I expect from nursery that my kids will spend there good time playing, singing, dancing, laughing. Only this what kids like. And of course basic knowledge of numbers and letters, and reading (later).

Private Nursey from my experience and that from friends is by far the better...if you want the best for your child and can afford it then a good Private Nursery is the best.

I am replying again because I do feel very strongly about this, both my English children went to government schools and still do, I cannot stress enough the benefit of them mixing their friends in the village.My daughter is 3 1/2 and has already been to see the dams, how water is produced, Limassol Castle, recycling plant,picking up rubbish on Mackenzie beach,to see the local goat herder, see how Hallumi is made to name but a few............ No comparison.
