Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Nadica was our first ever non-family member babysitter. Our son (6 and a half months) was instantly drawn to her warm and calm manner and played with her with no problem. We spent the first two hours unpacking boxes from our house move and could hear the baby's giggles coming from the sitting room. Nadica even managed to get him to have a nap - something we have rarely succeeded with! We had no hesitation leaving Nadica at home alone with our baby and enjoyed a baby free lunch for a change! We have made her our preferred carer and hope to see her again soon.

Just to say that I thought Fernanda was a fabulous sitter and the minute I saw her, I felt confident leaving my son with her. Sitters has been brilliant at providing the same familiar childcarers to us on numerous occasions and we have all felt an important bond with these super ladies. Fernanda is the right mix of being laid back and sensible. She has a good sense of humour and is also aware of how it feels to leave a child with a new person for the first time. My son had a lovely evening with Fernanda who was an amusing companion for him.

Sue is a dream - our son immediately felt perfectly at ease with her. We left them reading in a chair together before bed and he fell asleep in her arms! She sent us text updates throughout the evening and unfortunately he had a rough night. He coughed so hard that he was sick in bed and she changed the sheets, changed him, comforted him and put him back down. We were ridden with guilt but got home to a quiet, sleeping baby (we only saw the text about this as we were heading home). She was lovely and a complete natural, we adored her.
