Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

I really liked Linda. From the minute she came into my home her focus was on making sure my daughter was settled and ok. She made an immediate positive impact so much so I was able to head almost straight out the door (after showing Linda where the coffee was!) She texted me in the middle of the evening to let me know my daughter had gone to sleep and everything was ok, which was very reassuring. A lovely lady and my daughter has already asked when she's coming back to sit for her! Recommended.

Marianna was wonderful - so quiet and calm - I felt completely happy leaving my 4 year old with her. As it was, my son didn't stir, but he met Marianna before going to sleep and felt comfortable enough to answer her questions - a very good sign, and quite unusual. Marianna arrived early; presented her ID unprompted (very professional, I thought); and sent text updates to let us know that all was well. I would be very happy indeed for Marianna to sit for us again.

This was the first time we had left our children (age 3) before bedtime and so we were a little nervous. But Jackie did us proud! She sat with them through tea then got them ready for bed and even brought a book with her to read them at bedtime. She was confident, calm and friendly and as a result the boys were happy and settled. We would wholeheartedly recommend Jackie as a babysitter and we hope to meet her again soon!
