Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Wendy babysat for us for the first time and we are new to sitters so we were a bit nervous. Wendy called a day before she was due babysit to introduce herself which was a nice thought. Wendy was really nice and we felt comfortable leaving the kids with her. Our youngest took to her very quickly which was lovely as we thought she may have been the difficult one. We would definitely like Wendy to babysit for us in future. Thanks Wendy for putting us at ease.

Karen made us feel very at ease and comfortable leaving the children in her care. Both children were in bed but when our 2 year old woke she found things to change her and settled her back down to sleep. That is great as our daughter can be quite touchy at times with strangers. Thanks Karen and we will be calling on you again.

Lovely first experience of using Sitters. Ruth was a very friendly and competent sitter. We felt totally as ease leaving our children with her. And their feedback the following day was very positive. We hope that she is available to sit for us in the future.
