Looking for a Cancun babysitter?
All Mom's Need A Baby Break On Their Vacation!
What would make a holiday in Cancun, Playa del Carmen or Riviera Maya perfect? Assuming you are bringing your babies with you of course, and you have already rented your baby gear ;-)… then the last piece of the puzzle would be finding your dream Cancun babysitter! We recently met Valerie Aceves, who is the owner of Little Bear Care. When we talked to Valerie, we realized that her company values were very similar to those of Baja Baby Gear, and so we wanted to share her story with you and give you some information about a Cancun babysitter.
Meet The Owner Of Little Bear Care
Valerie is originally from Chicago, Illinois and moved to the Caribbean at a young age with part of her family. She comes from a big family being the youngest of 4 children. Valerie is half Mexican and half American Polish. She grew up in a suburb of Chicago and moved to Playa del Carmen when she was 11 years old with my parents and one of my sisters.
Valerie’s Mom was her biggest inspiration while living in Chicago as she was a housewife that decided to open her own daycare. Since Valerie was very young, she had always been around children of different ages. When the family moved to Playa del Carmen Valerie took babysitting jobs with different expats or locals in the area and developed a reputation as a reliable babysitter. As she got older she thought that opening a babysitting agency could be a great business and decided to do just that. It was time to open an official resource for travelers to find a trustworthy Cancun babysitter!
Little Bear Care
Little Bear Care has been in business for almost two years now. Initially, they first opened for locals and grew little by little. Little Bear Care covers the entire Mayan Rivera area, they can go to your residence or hotel, they can even accompany you on a family
tour for the whole day around the Mayan Riviera. Amazingly, they work 24-hour services if needed and can travel the Yucatán peninsula with no problem. Finding a Cancun babysitter has truly never been easier with Little Bear Care.
When we asked Valerie about what makes her Cancun babysitting service unique, she said this: "I think my agency is unique because of the selected caregivers we have on our team. We only hire young, active, friendly and outgoing women. With my years of working with so many families, I have come to think that my criteria are very particular when hiring, and I only hire the best."
Babysitter Background & Best Booking Practice
I think it’s fair to say that when thinking about booking a babysitter abroad, it can be very hard. There are so many unknowns about the travel destination you are heading to, and I’m sure there are plenty of Moms out there that would be worried about leaving their babies. Valerie works to completely reassure the families that they work with, she can pre-send a folder with all of her Cancun babysitter information; their first aid course qualifications, CPR courses, their identifications, 2 recommendation letters from similar past jobs and their job resumes or babysitting CV's. Valerie told us "We ask all parents to book their babysitters with as much time as possible, mínimum 3 hours before required service and we have minimum 2 hour service time.”
Moms - you can meet your sitter in advance via Skype, or you can arrange for the sitter to arrive at their first booking ahead of time for the first official meet. The sitters will pay for their own transportation to and from their work unless it's for a job after 10pm.
Pricing & Opening Hours
Little Bear Care is open 365 days a year, their reservation hours are 9:00am-9:00pm. Their prices depend on the age of your children, they charge more for infants because of the extra care needed for a baby. They do have elevated prices on holidays such as Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, NYE, etc.
