Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

This was our first time using Sitters and we were a little apprehensive never having met before. Any concerns we had evaporated as soon as Rajwinder came to the door. Raj had a warm and reassuring manner and kept us updated with texts throughout the evening as requested. She played very nicely with the children and the first thing they asked when they woke up in the morning was when Raj would be back! We would recommend Rajwinder without reservation, just as long as we can have her first!

Nicola was fantastic. I had an issue with one of children wanting to come with me. As soon as Nicola arrived she quickly engaged with my daughter making her laugh and soon she was more than happy to stay rather than come with me. She also text me during the evening to let me know that everyone was in bed and asleep which was very reassuring. I would happily recommend Nicola to other families.

I would highly recommend Deborah. She arrived promptly and quickly won the confidence of me and my children. It was an early start but I had no qualms when I left and knew that my children would be looked after well. This was confirmed the following morning when they all woke up to tell me, completely unprompted, how they had enjoyed being babysat by Deborah.
