As a result of safety and security concerns which all clients have when sourcing child care or babysitting providers, we prefer clients to make themselves comfortable with and to carry out their own checks on such providers. What we are sometimes able to do is provide a list of child care and babysitting providers in the area of the villa where we have been able to identify such services exist.
