Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

This was out first experience of using Sitters. I was nervous about having a stranger come to look after my son, but knew we had to start somewhere! Andrea phoned once she received the booking to introduce herself and reassure me about how the process works and how she could look after my son. Upon arrival she was very friendly and smiley and my son warmed to her straight away. She was very pleasant and kind and having stayed for half an hour before I had to go out, my son gave me the 'thumbs up' for Andrea. Will definitely book her again, thanks Andrea!!! xx.

I was a little dubious about leaving my little boy, as he had fallen asleep before Nuria had arrived and I wasn't sure how he would react if he woke to find that I wasn't there and there was someone he had never met before there instead. I had no need to worry whatsoever. Nuria is a very warm and welcoming person. My little boy (3.5 yrs) took to her straight away and could not wait to tell me all about the stories that they read together this morning. We are both looking forward to seeing Nuria again soon.

Our first time using sitters lastnight 28/07. The very lovely Julie attended to sit for our 7 yr old. Julie arrived before our agreed time to meet with my child & myself. Her years of experience showed through immediately in the way she interacted with daughter. Julie talked directly to my daughter when asking questions and was very interested in her replys. after 15 minutes Julie had her eating out of her hand & i was able to leave them together knowing that my daughter was happy.
