Don't Just Take Our Word For It

Having never used sitters before, I was quite apprehensive about using a babysitter I had never met to look after my almost three year old little boy. However, on arrival I immediately trusted Helen and I felt totally comfortable leaving her in charge. I felt reassured by the fact that she has children of her own and a great deal of experience with children of all ages. We will definitely be booking her again. My son was actually in bed and asleep when Helen arrived but I am sure he would be very happy to be looked after by her if he was awake! Mrs Davies, Wandsworth.

Having used a number of wonderful sitters through sitters.co.uk who I would highly recommend and welcome back back into my home- Jennifer is without doubt the most outstanding sitter I have used. From the second she arrived she bonded with my 7 month old baby boy and made him and I feel comfortable in her company. When I arrived home from my appointment my son was happy and content in Jennifer's care - I would love to keep Jennifer just to myself and my children as she she obviously has a real bond and understanding of children and their needs - thank you Jennifer..

I also wanted you to know that Nancy was an absolutely amazing babysitter. When my husband and I found out we would be moving, we made a London Bucket List. Without out Nancy we never would have been able to have so many amazing experiences in London. She was fantastic with our daughter and always made us feel 100% sure that Lily would be in great hands while we were out. We can't thank her enough!! If there is anything you would like me to write about her or any other way I can express my gratitude to her please let me know. Thank you, Lindsay Hocking-Hauser
