Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

I used the agency for the first time last night and i have to admit i was very aprehensive..... but within minutes of meeting Joanne i was completly relaxed. I found her friendly, professional and most importantly trustworthy. I felt completly at ease and confident that my child was safe in her care. I feel like a massive strain has been lifted and finally allowing me some time of my own with my child in safe hands and secure in his own bed in his own home.

Sarah called prior to the booking and was happy to talk us through her experience & qualifications. She made us feel very comfortable at the prospect of leaving our children with a stranger for the first time. Very friendly and approachable and happy to take on board suggestions for how best to settle our children if they woke.Texted us to advise all was well which helped us to relax and enjoy our 'child free' evening.

Ildiko was very friendly & had a lovely personality. My children had a lot of fun with her, she engaged in activities with them which kept them busy & occupied. My younger son was very taken with her and he insisted she comes again so he can talk to her about more cars lol & my older son is very shy & keeps to himself but he was so comfortable with IIdiko that he had a good evening talking about school etc. My husband & I were very apprehensive having someone who we have never met before but IIdiko was approachable & very friendly, my children were thrilled to have her. I would definitely book again with this sitter.
