Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Amy hadn't looked after my 2 children before (4 month old daughter and 20 month old son) but she was very friendly and relaxed around them both. They were both in bed asleep when we got home and she even sent us a text to say they were in bed asleep which allowed us to relax and enjoy the night. I would be happy for her to look after my children again and would recommend her!

Tracy has looked after my 4 year old and 21 month old on a number of occasions and has always provided a fantastic childcare service. She is polite, punctual, enthusiastic and, most important of all, my children are very happy with her and have lots of fun! I would have no hesitation in recommending Tracy to other parents.

Much more than just a Sitter - Amy arrived at teatime and immediately took the initiative and started chatting with, playing and feeding our son - who immediately liked her. We felt comfortable leaving our (awake) son with her, which is a first for us with a babysitter. Can't recommend her enough.
