Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Catherine was brilliant. Arranged for her to arrive early than needed so she could meet all 4 of my children before they were in bed. Straight away she interacted with the children and genuinely took an interest in what they were doing. It was the first time we have used a sitter that is not family so was a little nervous but she made me very comfortable to go out and leave my children in her care. Gave me a text while I was out to reassure me that everything was ok and that all children were settled. Would definitely recommend her and use her again.

Nicola was the first 'Sitter' we'd had so were a little nervous but we needn't have been. She arrived on time, greeted my little one happily and asked all the right questions. Our little one even asked her for a cuddle before I put her to bed. She was in touch during the evening and I felt totally secure knowing she was at home. I even bumped into her and her family the following day completely by coincidence and it was nice to see her being a mum too with her own two young ones. I would certainly recommend her and the service in general.

Kate arrived 5 minutes before time to say hello to our 2 boys. When we left our youngest got a little upset, we asked Kate to go up and see him. We then left when we heard him stop crying. We got a text 30 minutes later, saying that they read a book and talked about his toys, he then went to sleep peacefully. We then got a text 2 hours later, saying that the boys were fast asleep and all was well. That was not requested for, but was gratefully received. Kate was very friendly, polite and warm. We would highly recommenced.
