Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Candice was very friendly and my young son seemed comfortable with her straight away. She was very confident when it came to handling my 3 month old baby and his reflux problems. I was instantly reassured that Candice was competent and reliable. I felt happy to trust her with my babies, which was a brand new experience for me, as I had been nervous to hire a sitter before. I would be completely comfortable leaving my very small children in her care. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a highly responsible and personable sitter.

Kavel was wonderful. Chatty, helpful and instantly put us at ease. We are pretty relaxed generally, but Kavel helped us to completely switch off while we were out as we had no worries at all. She even calmed a usually very fussy baby whilst getting ready for bed; we've never seen him like it during a clothes change! Thank you so much for sending Kavel, we will use her again, undoubtedly.

Onna was absolutely lovely. She settled with our 4 month old easily and was playing with the Eldest within moments. She knew exactly what she was doing and is clearly a very experienced, very kind and excellent carer. It was lovely to have such a relaxed person around, I was very confident leaving our two with her and would do so again without a moments hesitation.
