    Childcare in Aruba

    I am new to this forum, so wasn't exactly sure where to put this thread or if I am even doing this correctly . My family is in the process of planning an extended trip (3 months) to Aruba and will need daily childcare for our 18 month old. I am having a hard time finding information on options for this. Anyone have any suggestions/ideas?

    Thank you in advance!

    I have someone I may be able ask, but need more info. Are you looking for someone to come into your residence or take your child somewhere? What part of the island will you live?

    Welcome to the forum Awest. There is one person that is highly recommended but her name escapes me, maybe Marita something? Someone will correct me. If you type babysitter in the search bar in the upper right corner it should come up with some recommendations.

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum.
    very exciting that you will be in aruba for 3 months!.
    Mariza Garcia does some babysitting (her user name on this forum is MAFALDA)
    as for daily childcare, are you asking about acting as a nanny?
    I will direct Mariza to this thread.

    She is a wonderful and trustworthy and kind lady.
    If she cannot help you, she may also know someone who can.

    Honestly, we are not sure exactly where we will be as I wanted to see if there were childcare options before we got too deep into planning. I am fully open to suggestion on location as well . I am open to both in home care and taking my son somewhere, although I would prefer a in home nanny if it is affordable.

    Thank you for the information and keeping my post in the right place. I will get the hang of this (sooner or later). If/when we need a babysitter, I will definitely contact Mariza! I am actually looking for more of a nanny for when we will be working during the day but if that is not affordable, then open to a daycare setting.

    I'm not on Facebook, but can you search for a nanny on there? Please don't crush me everyone I don't know how it works, but it seems like there are groups for everything according to Pam.
