Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

We recently hired Ruth and it was the first time we had left our 2 year old with anyone. You can instantly tell Ruth is experienced and has a warm and caring personality and our son warmed to her right away. She managed to get him to bed without any hassle (he usually plays up for us!!) and was fast asleep all night. Would highly recommend Ruth and as new comers to the UK/St. Albans areas, we are very grateful to have found someone so reliable and trustworthy in Ruth. We can now look forward to a few more "date nights" without stress of worrying whats happening at home.

Alicia was fantastic with our 13 month old boy. He was recovering from an illness and couldn't go to nursery so we booked through sitters only the day before to come for 5 hours while I did some work from home. Alicia called to confirm on the morning of the booking, she arrived on time and kept my son entertained all day. She was so enthusiastic and he really enjoyed playing with her. She even managed to get him down for his afternoon nap. It was lovely to hear them playing together and meant I could focus on work knowing he was happy and safe.

Amy looked after our little almost two year old boy and was absolutely wonderful. Luke can be a little shy but she put him at ease straight away and made it so easy for us to enjoy the wedding we were at! She was absolutely lovely - warm and caring, very experienced- Luke was so settled and chatty with her, and was so tired out after a few hours with her he went straight to sleep - unheard of! We are gutted not to live in the area otherwise would love to have Amy as our regular sitter. She was fantastic and we would fully recommend her.
