All Inclusive for Kids - with day care

I am looking to travel to an all-inclusive resort with my one year old and my neighbors who have a 2 and 3 year old. We recently stayed in Beaches Turks and Caicos which was FABULOUS, but we are looking for something a bit less expensive.

Can anyone recommend and all inclusive that has day care for all ages and perhaps babysitting at night?

Thanks everyone.

Yes, the T&C Beaches is very nice, and about to open another (and more expensive) expansion...

But, to try something a little more reasonably priced while in the same general area, check the Club Med, Punta Cana. This is a very family oriented Club Med and known for taking very good care of young children. Lots of activities for everyone to do. There are also Club Med Family villages at Cancun and Ixtapa, MX. These have both been recently "rebuilt" (not just a simple renovation) and are very nice. They will probably cost more than The Punta Cana Club Med, but still less than Beaches. Word of "warning".. Club Med frequently runs very good specials, so don't be scared off if the prices initially look expensive. A good "Club Med knowledgeable" travel agent can frequently save a lot of $$

I was looking into this a while ago, because we have a 2 & 3 yr old. The only ones I found that have activities/care for under 4's that are included in the all inclusive price were Melia Caribe in Domincan Republic and FDR in Jamaica. Club Med does offer under 4 care, but for an extra fee. My investigation wasn't totally complete so if any one else has other suggestions would love to here them. We actually decided for our trip to be just me a husband to Club Med in T&C, leave the kids with their grandparents and wait until are youngest turns 4 to take them on a big beach vacation so there are more resorts and destinations to choose from.

You must be over age 18 to stay at the Turkoise Club Med. Club meds at some other locations take your age requirements.

Yes, WaupacaTraveller, the Turkoise Club Med is 18 and over only, which is why I didn't mention it as long as stolirox was talking about a family vacation. But, once they decided to leave the kids behind, it becomes a viable (and fun) option...
