Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

This was our first experience of using a 'sitters' sitter and indeed our first experience of leaving our three month old son with anyone other than family. Fiona was wonderful; she arrived perfectly on time for introductions and a quick tour of anything she might need to know before asking whether we preferred to have updates texted to us or not. We will definitely use Fiona again when we are back in St. Andrews. Altogether a perfect experience from start to finish.

Tania looked after my one year old daughter yesterday. My daughter was instantly at ease with her, and was soon giggling and playing. I was really comfortable leaving her with Tania, who is obviously very experienced with children. I can highly recommend her.

Joanne was fantastic with my two boys aged 2 and 3. We threw her in at the deep end and she was brilliant! Playing outdoor games and having a picnic etc. The boys loved both their days with her and can't wait to see her again. Highly recommended!
