You can then book childcare online – just select the

Choose the local carers you’d prefer us to offer your bookings
to first and we’ll keep you updated of progress by email.


Your childcarer will call you before the booking and you should pay
her for her time at the end. Rates start from just £7.50.

Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Really great carer, extremely professional and experienced and left us feeling very confident to leave both our girls in her care for the evening. One of our girls woke up and Ngisti was sat chatting with her when we came back (she never goes straight back to sleep!)...our daughter was really sad when she had to go home!! She absolutely loved her and still talks about 'Mary Poppins' two weeks later. We would absolutely use her again and recommend her. Thankyou so much Ngisti!

Really lovely lady, great first impression, made an effort with the boys especially my 28 month old. We will be booking Heather soon, thank you.

I just wanted to say how fabulous Jacqueline was on Saturday. She had never sat for us before but the children were all immediately comfortable and settled with her. She played lots of games with Lucy as well as reading to her before bed. The older 2 both commented the next day on how good she was. Not only that but she cleared all the glasses and plates in my kitchen from a small party we had had before going out and put the leftover food back in the fridge - above and beyond what she needed to do but very much appreciated. I would be grateful if you pass this on to her. Many thanks. Catriona Emmett.
