Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

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.

Just to say that Leah is the nicest, kindest, most obliging person you could hope to meet. She takes a real interest in the children and what they have to say, she actively plays and participates with them as opposed to just 'sitting' which they adore her for. Nothing is ever too much trouble for her, she is an absolute pleasure to deal with and a credit to your company. Really I couldn't praise her highly enough, she is worth her weight in gold (which isn't alot as she is only little). Kind regards, Helen Kirkby.

This was the first time in many months that my husband and I had been out without a family member looking after our 4 children. My husband and I were both very nervous about leaving the children with a non family member, but when Yvonne turned up at our house and she hit it straight of with ourselves and our 4 children. It is fantastic and the children even ask "is Yvonne coming to look after us today", this is so reasurring and we will be going out a little more often now. Thanks Yvonne and Thanks Sitters!
