move with new born baby
i am planning on moving to St. Thomas in late June with my new born baby. He will be 2 month then. Can anybody tell me something about good pediatrician, day care, nanny's or baby group dates.
Any info will be helpful.
Maybe someone with more information about daycare could add something. However, I have a VERY limited idea of the daycare on STT. The selection is very limited. I have been into two daycare centers here, and both lacked the cleanliness I would require for an older child, much less a newborn (such as clean floors). Most people I know who have small children find an in home or nanny situation. How much they pay for these services I do not know.
I have heard a group of parents with younger children (toddler age) meet at the tot lot on Friday afternoons. Also, I know several people go to the tot lot Friday evenings about 5 ish.
As for pediatrician, I haven't had the need to use one yet. knock on wood.
thanks a lot for the info. It is good to know that the daycare is out of the question
Well, like I said my experience is very limited. There maybe some good ones, but it might take some searching.
I saw your message and when my family moves to the VI our son will also be two. We are moving to STX, however.
In my searches I found a .pdf that listed three pages of daycare centers on STX. Maybe there is one for STT, too.
Here is the link:
Looks like you may be able to start with www.dhs.gov.vi and that may lead you in the right direction.
Hope this helps.
thanks that list is very helpful. I also found a montessory school, which sounds good.
Do they have Baby's r us on the island or similar stores?
"Do they have Baby's r us on the island or similar stores?"
No -- have you ever been here? If not, you would be smart to visit before you move. We have K-Mart but they aren't as reliably stocked as stateside stores.
dougtamjj can talk about kids and stx with some authority.
trw, I think danymouse is moving to STT which I know nothing about. danymouse most of the stateside baby stores ship here I think. Usually I go on line and pick things I want and family back in the states buy them for me and bring the items in their suitcases when they come to visit.
