Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Our first ever babysitter! Janette called in good time before our booking time; I'd just found out at nursery that our daughter had chicken pox. We were in two minds about whether to go out or not but Janette made the decision a breeze. So warm and friendly on arrival, it didn't take long for our 2 year old to start showing off.....and she's rather fussy as to whom she does this in front of! Can't wait for Janette to give us another night off soon. Wonderful lady, thank you!

Harriet is very personable and we had no concerns whatsoever leaving our children with her. Our daughter was already asleep and our son was about to go to bed when Harriet came. Our son met her briefly but evidentially he felt sufficiently at ease to go to bed and fall asleep as usual. Harriet sent a text halfway through the evening to let us know all was well, which was much appreciated. Would/ will definitely use Harriet again.

Kerry arrived early on Saturday which gave us plenty of time to introduce her to the baby and settle in before we went out for our first meal together in months. She exuded calm confidence from her 20 years' experience in childcare and I would recommend her without hesitation.
