Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

I can recommend Fatma without hesitation. She was brilliant. She has a lovely energy and immediately put my two year old daughter (who isn't used to being left with a stranger) at ease and by the time I was ready to leave, she was having so much fun playing that she barely said goodbye. Due to a late nap, she didn't go to bed until 10pm so if Fatma had to keep her entertained until then, which she did without grumbling. When my daughter was finally tired, she went to sleep without any tears or protest. This is somewhat of a miracle! Thanks Fatma - I'll definitely ask for you again.

This was the second time that we have used Mirreen to babysit for our two boys (3 years old and 18 months old). She has a warm, calm manner and the boys took to her straight away. The first time, I had to leave during their dinner, and although there were some tears from the youngest, Mirreen told me that she was able to calm and distract him within a few moments and they went to bed happy. The second time, both boys were happily playing and we managed to leave with absolutely no fuss, so they clearly already feel very at home with her. We'll certainly use her again.

We rarely leave our 21 month old twins alone with sitters, but Ipshita's confident attitude reassured me enough to leave twice during the evening to get much-needed rest. Ipshita had called us 3 hours in advance and once here, she asked questions, ensuring she knew their evening routine. The twins are wary of strangers, but within a few minutes were smiling and playing with Ipshita. She reassured me with regular text updates, followed all our directions, and debriefed me again later. We hope to have Ipshita back in future so we can plan a rare night out.
