Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

First time using someone outside the family , but all was great , Melanie text me an hour before she came and once she arrived she met the children (6,10,12). they were very comfortable with her straight away. she played games and watched movies with them before bed time. When I arrived back home she fill me in on what they did and everything was fine. Next morning the children were fast to tell me they enjoyed having Melanie mind them and would be happy to do it again. So I will be using the service again . Thank you for making it easy for me to enjoy a child free night out.

Kim was amazing from the moment she stepped though the door. She recognised my daughter from Nursery and that instantly put my mind at ease. My son was more difficult as he is just a baby and teething so he cried so much. But she didn t even seem bothered and told me not to worry as he would be fine once we left. She kept us posted my messages throughout the night and even stayed longer without a second thought. Really recommend her highly. Such a lovely and caring lady. Even managed to put my daughter to bed on time which I am yet to accomplish. Absolutely love her!!!!!

Sandra was absolutely lovely, and really brilliant with my 2 year old son. She let me know in plenty of time that she was coming, and she got along great with my son as soon as she got in the door. She was very confident and experienced and I felt very relaxed about leaving him in her care. She was also good enough to go out to the garden and let him play there for a while which was much nicer and more stimulating for him than to just watch TV for the whole time. A lovely warm and competent lady who did a wonderful job. Would recommend her to anyone.
