Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

This was the first time Anita came to babysit and we are so pleased with her. She was very nice to all of us and made immediately an effort to get to know our boy. Altought Max was a bit upset at the beginning due to tiredness Anita was calm and smily, and took control. I felt very confident to leave my son with her, no worries at all. Everything went well, and main thing is that Max seems to be very happy with Anita. We are so pleased to have been able to have so good babysitters and we are more then happy to have Anita again. I can only recommend your service!

Janet rang an hour before hand and arrived promptly. This was our first experience with Sitters and she put our minds at ease. She asked lots of relevant questions about the children and their routine and whilst we were getting ready to leave she was chatting to them all and they enjoyed her company. We would happily use Janet again!

Miss B, Derby, DE65

Extremely happy with our first use of sitters and our baby sitter Jill, would definately use the service and Jill again. This was the first time that anyone other than family had looked after our daughter and we were very pleased with how things went.
