Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Having never used a babysitting service before, we were understandably nervous.. We were immensely reassured by the calm, positive manner displayed by Pauline and the ease with which she interacted with our kids. Though my yougest son was extremely vocal (we were unfortunately weaning him from his bottle feed) her unflappable demeanour was all the more remarkable! Highly recommended and thanks Sitters for making this possible!

I was initially very anxious about leaving my 12 week old baby for the first time. I was instantly put at ease after meeting Elaine. My older children liked her and were happy to be left. Elaine gave good feedback on how it went with the baby and left bottles with leftover milk in so I could see how much he had taken. I liked her manner which was calm and patient.

Marta was first babysitter with Sitters and as soon as I met her I felt very confident that my children were in good hands. She is very patient and calm but is also fun and enjoys playing with children. The children are happy to have her as a sitter and look forward to seeing her if they know she's coming. I would definitely recommend her.
