Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

This was our first experience of using a 'sitters' sitter and indeed our first experience of leaving our three month old son with anyone other than family. Fiona was wonderful; she arrived perfectly on time for introductions and a quick tour of anything she might need to know before asking whether we preferred to have updates texted to us or not. We will definitely use Fiona again when we are back in St. Andrews. Altogether a perfect experience from start to finish.

Tania looked after my one year old daughter yesterday. My daughter was instantly at ease with her, and was soon giggling and playing. I was really comfortable leaving her with Tania, who is obviously very experienced with children. I can highly recommend her.

We organised Anna to look after our 13-month-old daughter at very short notice due an urgent need. She arrived promptly, asked questions that indicated her experience (and thus were comforting to my wife and I) and our daughter (who had never previously had a carer other than my wife and I) was immediately happy with her. Anna seemed very calm and realistic about dealing with a small child. She kept us up-to-date during the day, which was reassuring. When we retuned, our daughter didn't want Anna to leave, which is probably the best recommendation. Wouldn't hesitate to use her again.
