Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Honor is a fantastic sitter who sets us at ease as soon as she walks in the door. We've had Honor sit for us several times, my toddler always excitedly asks when she is coming back. Most recently Honor took our daughter for a full day and late into the evening so we could attend a wedding. She planned a great day of activities and kept our daughter happy and busy the whole time and made sure she drank enough water as it was a hot day. I appreciated the several text updates I received throughout the day, it was nice to know all was well. I would highly recommend Honor as a sitter.

I was initially apprehensive, having never used sitters or any other service of a similar nature before. However, the minute Tracey walked through our door, I felt completely at ease. She was simply wonderful and absolutely marvellous with my 32-month-old daughter and my 5-week-old baby boy. We are absolutely thrilled to have met her. My daughter loved spending time with her and my husband and I would not hesitate to leave both our kids with her. Now, we can actually think about going out on dates or just enjoying some 'me' time. Thank you Tracey and sitters!

Frances has looked after my 3yo son on three separate occasions now. She always arrived on time and brought with her a range of various activities for my son to enjoy. Frances did a really great job, bearing in mind that my son is very active and strong willed child, who does not speak much English at this stage (though fluently chats in his native language). On my return home my son always looked happy, playful and keen to demonstrate all the art work he had done with Frances. I would happily recommend Frances, and hope she will be able to come to us again.
