We will be in Tortola for 3.5 months and are looking for help with child care. I came across the Tropical Nannies website. Any other recommendations on how to find someone? Also, does anyone know of any baby/toddler playgroups that meet up? I would love to meet other mamas and babies on the island. Thanks in advance!
There are many daycare services located in most populated areas in the BVI with the majority being in Road Town. Willos, BVI is highly recommended by a lot of parents.
Please see our section in Newbie “Education and Schools” under preschool and daycare: http://bvinewbie.com/education-schools/
Asking personal recommendations from other island parents is also a good idea in regards to personal nannies and babysitters. Killi Killi, located across from Dolphin Discovery in Road Town is a great way to introduce your child to others and meet parents.
If you are on Facebook (which is a highly useful resource in the BVI) join both the BVI Community Board and BVI Mothers and Children to connect with others in the community.
Hope this helps!
Good morning, Lauren. Thank you for this! Killi Killi looks like a wonderful place. I would like to find a personal nanny rather than enroll him in daycare, so perhaps asking around once I get there will work out. I will join the FB groups as well. Have a great day!
