Don't Just Take Our Word For It

Edit has an amazing ability to 'read' our child and understand whether she needs to be affectionate, firm, or playful with her. Our daughter now asks for her by name !

Maria-Goretti was our first experience with a babysitter and it went very w ell. As our kids (4 & 6) have never been babysat by anyone other than famil y, they were a bit nervous (as were we), but it all went very smoothly and Maria has a lovely calm nature and was punctual. The kids would like her to come again when we need to use Sitters again, which I think is a good sign ! Thanks also to Sitters for the great service and communication regarding our booking.

Fatuma was great with my 2 year old daughter. I have only left my daughter with a babysitter once prior and never before at night so it was reassuring to meet someone so warm and competent. When we returned home I realised our daughter had woken and cried after I left (I put her to sleep before leaving ) and Fatuma had gotten her back to sleep and I really appreciated that I didn't have to worry about a thing . I can see why kids love her !
