Don't Just Take Our Word For It

Kim was looking after our 3yo on a Sunday afternoon and from the moment I met her I felt confident of leaving our girl with her: our daughter is usually reserved/ shy towards strangers, but in this instance she warmed up to Kim almost instantly. Anushka also doesn't like us leaving home without her, so there's always some degree of fuss, but she didn't even notice when we left the house as she was busy reading books with Kim. We came back to happy and fed kid who was dissappointed that Kim had to leave and we would definitely choose Kim again in the future if she's available!

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Melinda to others. We're first time parents and this was the first time we'd left Mia with anyone other than family. Melinda called before the appointmt to go through preferences and was bang on time. Mia was awake when Melinda arrived and without hesitation Mia crawled over and reached out to her for a cuddle so Melinda clearly had Mia's approval! Melinda text during the evening to say that Mia was still fast asleep and well. A lovely lady. Will definitely be using Sitters again - welcome back life, I've missed you! :-).

Suzette was our first babysitter with Sitters. We were quite nervous as we weren't sure how our two-year old would take to a stranger, but the moment she came into the house we all felt at ease. Our son played with her immediately and was very happy with her. She was very relaxed and easy-going and also seemed gentle and kind, and really interested in playing with him. I put him to bed myself, but when he woke up later on when we were out, Suzette had no trouble putting him back to bed again, without tears or fuss. We would love her to come again!
