Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Kelly needed directions to the house and had sensibly asked for these - it is not the easiest to find - which meant she arrived in good time. The house was busy with the tail-end of my daughter's birthday party, but she didn't seem fazed. She took time to get to know our children and, despite the commotion, took on board all my instructions. The babysitting went like clockwork: children went to bed on time and were fast asleep when we got home. Kelly has a pleasant personality and I would use her again.

This was the first time we had used Sitters. Debra was exactly what we were looking for in a carer for our son - the first time we had left him with anyone except very close family (no social life for nearly eight years!) - gentle, laid back and very friendly, we had no qulams about leaving her in charge. The best recommendation is that, having been upset about being left prior to our going out, our son is now very much looking forward to Debras next visit.

My husband and I are very pleased that we have had Gillian as our childminder lately. She is an extremely relaxed and joyful person, she was just great with our children. Gillian stayed late looking after our boys but was on the alert until the last min. She displayed lots of care and patience and was happy to take the boys to the playground nearby. We would recommend Gillian to anyone who uses the Sitters service. All the best, Anna and Ronald.
