Here's how Sitters works


Start by entering your postcode to set up your FREE
account and read reviews about childcarers local to you.


You can then book childcare online – just select the
date, time and address for your booking.


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 £7.20.


Pay nothing until after you have used Sitters - guaranteed. A booking
fee (£4-£6) and quarterly membership fee (£14.95) will only be
charged to your credit card after your booking has taken place.

Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Anne was fantastic. She settled my 11month old son who had never slept away from home before and I was so happy with how quickly he took to her. She arrived early at the hotel and also looked after my 9 year old daughter settling her to sleep in the same hotel room while my daughter is full of sweets is not an easy task! I will be booking with her from now on when I need a sitter, fantastic :).

Hilary was brilliant! She made an extra trip out to confirm our booking as (unbeknownst to me!) I was having phone problems. She arrived early on the evening to introduce herself to the children and charmed them instantly. They have been asking ever since when she's coming back again. Thanks so much Hilary, I couldn't have asked for anything more!

Anne has looked after our two older boys and they a young teens. She is very attentive, fun and such a likeable person. This was a huge transition for us to trust someone we don't know to look after our children but she has made us feel at ease. I would highly recommend her and she is at our preferred childcarer. Thank you Anne.
