Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Sandra was absolutely lovely, and really brilliant with my 2 year old son. She let me know in plenty of time that she was coming, and she got along great with my son as soon as she got in the door. She was very confident and experienced and I felt very relaxed about leaving him in her care. She was also good enough to go out to the garden and let him play there for a while which was much nicer and more stimulating for him than to just watch TV for the whole time. A lovely warm and competent lady who did a wonderful job. Would recommend her to anyone.

The children really took to Manting and despite a difficult episode with my 15yr foster daughter Manting took it all in her stride and was amazing! She made me feel confident and calm about leaving my children and I felt that Manting would be able to handle anything that was presented to her from the questions she asked and the way she interacted with the children whilst I was there. She did not fail my initial assessment of her and I would welcome her back at anytime.

This is the first time we had left our 5&7 year olds with a babysitter we didn't know. Natasha was amazing. She was so friendly, caring and bubbly. The children loved her and asked if we could go out again tomorrow night so she could come back! They loved playing with her, talking to her and having her read them stories. I would thoroughly recommend Natasha.
