Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Rosemary was the first baby sitter we had used from Sitters. We were very pleased with the service she gave and will definitely request her again. She arrived a few minutes early and started playing with our 21 month old son straight away. He instantly liked her, and was not at all upset when we went out. She is clearly very experienced and comfortable around children. When we arrived home our son was peacefully sleeping, the flat was tidy and Rosemary was friendly and cheerful. Over all an excellent experience.

Katarina is the first carer we have used and like any parent, we are protective of our children. However, she was excellent, very experienced and the children were completely safe in her care, testament to her experience and we wil definately request her again for the future. Our daughter took to her straight way and we were able to go out and have some quality time together without worry. Thank you Katarina and thank you Sitters for an excellent choice in carer.

Nicola was really great with my children. She asked all the right questions. I felt comfortable that she could deal with anything that may come up. My children were happy that they were being left in safe hands and even the dogs took to Nicola straight away. It was good to walk out of the door and see my six year old daughter cuddled up to Nicola on the sofa and chatting away happily. I'm looking forward to having Nicola back again when the need arises.
