Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Hi all @ Sitters. Well having felt very apprehensive about using this kind of service for the very first time, I don't know why I was worrying so much. Cathy came to our house and the children, my Hubby & myself all took to her straight away and felt very at ease. Look forward to using Sitters again and requesting Cathy to babysit too. Feel so very pleased that we now know we have babysitter arrangements sorted for future evenings out. Excellent company service, all very efficient and professional. Will definitely be telling friends and passing the word around. Many thanks, T x.

I had set the ball in motion so that my son would not notice me putting him to bed an hour early as it would have been the first time a stranger would have put him to bed! When Sarah arrived, the 10 minutes that it normally takes him to warm up was out of the window and they were fast and firm friends, so much so, that I changed my mind and left Sarah to put him to bed at his normal time. I was over the moon to receive a text to say that he had gone to bed and was out like a light! I would highly recommend Sarah, brilliant!

We had a fantastic experience with Susan last week. We've only used sitters a handful of times before and our 5 year old son still has to get used to it but Susan managed to totally put him at ease in the shortest amount of time. They really bonded it seemed so we could enjoy a date night out without having to worry at all which was great. Susan is super experienced, very calming and has such a friendly nature. We would love to have her sit for us again, and can highly recommend her. Thank you so much again, Susan!
