We have 205 babysitters available in the N5 postcode area and a further 2157 in neighbouring postcode areas.

Sitters provides qualified and experienced childcarers to look after your children, at your home, when you need to go out, both during the evening and during the day. All Sitters child minders have experience working in professional childcare roles, most are OFSTED Registered Childminders or qualified Nursery Nurses. For your reassurance we meet all the child carers in person at interview and carefully check their references. We also receive continuous feedback from parents telling us about the babysitters they have met through Sitters.

Here’s what other parents have been telling us about Sitters childcarers in and around Highbury.


Manjola was very kind and attentive to the children and asked if there were any medical issues (which had never been asked before) and not at all fazed at the prospect of no tv allowed for the 4-8 slot! Definitely will book her again.

Ms S, London , N 5

Patience was very involved putting my daughters to bed, coming up with ingenious ways to get them into their pajamas, listening to piano practice and reading with them. They are very keen for me to go out again soon!

Ms S, London , N 5

Rita was excellent, and the boys loved her, so much so that they asked if we could ask her over some time, but not to babysit!

Mrs M, London , N 5

Yewubnesh regularly babsits for us and is wonderful with our three boys, aged 8, 8 and 5. She is very caring and interested in them, and there have never been any problems. She happily helps with their bed time routine, and ensures that they are settled at a reasonable time.

Mrs M, London , N 5

We had a great time with Aysel, she was very good with our 2 toddlers, very polite but firm. Also, she is very local to us which means it takes no time at all to drop her home. We have moved her to our no 3.

Mr H, London , N 5

We really liked Manjola and the kids liked her too. She was gentle when needed and strict when it was bedtime and sophie had to be in bed. We would happily use her again.

Mr H, London , N 5

Really nice girl. kids really enjoyed her company and she immediately put them at ease, whilst not being a walkover and coming with bribes.

Mr H, London , N 5

Klara was a pleasure to meet and to have sit for us - she was unfazed by quite a hectic evening, with one child awake more than usual due to a neighbour's party and she was very helpful in keeping me in touch on how the kids were. We hope to meet her again.

Mrs K, London , N 5

Goksen was wonderful; she was immediately very open and funny and our two children seemed immediately comfortable with her. We will happily have her sit for us again!

Ms J, London , N 5

Sibongile regularly helps us, and I'm always very happy to leave our daughter in her care. Our daughter has also taken to her - we like Sibongile a lot.

Mrs T, London , N 5

I haven't left feedback for a while, but wanted to reiterate how lovely we think Sibongile is - she's really kind and calm and seemingly not fased by anything. Feel very lucky that she's able to look after our daughter.

Mrs T, London , N 5

Nancy looked after our daughter for the first time recently, and we liked her a lot. She seems cheerful and practical and I'd happily ask for her again.

Mrs T, London , N 5

Janet babysat for us on Saturday 15th and was great. Dynamic, very pleasant to talk to and I'd trust her to use her initiative if necessary. I'll definitely request her services again.

Mrs T, London , N 5

Lenka looked after our daughter for the first time last weekend. She was very pleasant and seemed very sensible. I'd be very happy for her to come and sit again.

Mrs T, London , N 5

Lenka is lovely, always enthusiastic. She looks as though she'd be capable in a crisis (which we haven't had yet, luckily!).

Mrs T, London , N 5

Once again I was very happy to leave our daughter in Sandra's care on Saturday night. She seems very capable and sensible, and is easy to have a conversation with.

Mrs T, London , N 5

Tanya stayed calm, friendly and firm while my 5 year old threw a complete strop about me going out. He quickly responded well and I felt very reassured and comfortable about leaving her in charge of him and his little brother.

Ms E, London , N 5

Very punctual. Engaged very well with the children who were quite happy to be left with her although they had not met her before. Would use again.

Mrs P, London , N 5

Nes has been keen to take on responsisbilities and interact with our son, happy to help to put him to bed which is a first and very appreciated. Very gentle with him and also well qualified. Thank you.

Mr A, London , N 5

Pavla was really good with the children - my smallest son in particular rea lly enjoyed reading with her , and she was very positive and encouraging wi th him . Would definitely use her again.

Mrs C, London , N 5
