Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Claire was fantastic! She turned up to a completely disorganised house with me half ready trying to get my son's dinner ready whilst getting dressed myself for a ball. She was completely un- phased and immediately put me at ease, and my 3 children who had never met her before. They all thought she was fantastic, even my 12 year old son - especially as she watched the football with him! She even cleared up after my son's very messy dinner so not only did I come home to happy children, but also to a lovely tidy kitchen. Would thoroughly recommend.

1st time i've used sitters and 1st time I've left my kids with someone other than family. Very happy with the service provided. Sarah was great, I really felt at ease going out for the nite (&had a great evening too!) and came home to a lovely quiet, calm environment with all kids sound asleep!!! Many thanks, will def recommend to friends and already looking forward to having another nite out soon.

Lynne was a fantiastic babysitter, I don't think I have heard my two 3 year old girls sqeal with laughter so much for ages! We would love to book her again. Thanks all the office staff at Sitters too - you must work really hard behind the scenes to get all this to work so smoothly . Best wishes Rachel.
