Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

We met Janice for the 1st time last friday night.She was wonderful and we would love to continue asking her to come and babysit in the future.Our son has been asking when she will be coming to look after him again.Thankyou very much.

We used the service for the first time on Tuesday and we were a little nervous how our two children would cope with being left with a stranger. Well we needn't have worried, Nicola was extremely reassuring right from the minute she came into our home. She quickly put us and our children at ease and promised to send texts when the children had settled. I really didn't think they would as they've only ever been out to bed by us and we sit with them until they go to sleep but to our surprise, both children were asleep when we arrived home!! My husband said its the best money we've ever spent! We can't wait to plan our next evening out!

Nicola M was great with our 4 year son when we booked her to take care of him before the nursery hours. She came prepared with play materials and she bonded quickly with the child. We could notice that our son was happy and relaxed with her. She was very helpful and accommodating to our situation. Also Nicola kept us updated over phone which we found very helpful. We will certainly book her again for child care and strongly recommend her for future child care work. Thomas and Miriam from Durham. DH1
