    Default daycares

    I was wondering if there were any daycares in Santo Domingo? If not, what is done? What about day baby-sitter? thanks for the information.

    Dominicans and many foreigners here often hire a nanny to look after thier kid(s). However, I have yet to see a nanny I would leave my kid with... There are preschools that start as early as age 1&1/2, that run from 8-12 daily. For the evenings, we try to find a teenager (generally a foreigner) to look after our kid. It is not all that easy, unless you decide to hire a nanny--but generally the "care" they provide seems to involve turning on the tv... Don't expect stories or crafts--nannies here tend to come from the campo, and are pretty much uneducated and certainly untrained in any aspect of childcare. Good luck!

    If you have dominican friends talk to them, most of them have a sister that would like to make some money and that are reliable. That is what a friend of mine did and that woman did her job just great. She was also cleaning and cooking.
