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.

Toyin was superb with our 8 year old daughter, who was at home whilst the rest of the family was out. Quite a rare occurrence, as she would normally have her older brothers for company. Toyin made it fun for her and even played "Just Dance" on the PS4 with her. My daughter thought that was fabulous - so did I! We have put her on our "preferred childcarers" list, as when I asked my daughter the next morning what she thought of Toyin, she replied that she was "one of the best babysitters ever". That says it all!
