Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

We recently hired Ruth and it was the first time we had left our 2 year old with anyone. You can instantly tell Ruth is experienced and has a warm and caring personality and our son warmed to her right away. She managed to get him to bed without any hassle (he usually plays up for us!!) and was fast asleep all night. Would highly recommend Ruth and as new comers to the UK/St. Albans areas, we are very grateful to have found someone so reliable and trustworthy in Ruth. We can now look forward to a few more "date nights" without stress of worrying whats happening at home.

Mandy immediately engaged both of the boys in conversation and made them feel at ease with her. She was happy to follow their usual routines and put my younger child to bed. He was very happy with her and settled without difficulty. She was careful not to do anything that the boys were not happy for her to do. My older son said "Best babysitter ever!". Mandy is warm and caring and sensitive to each child's differences and needs. Clearly knows a lot about children's development and would not be fazed by anything unusual! I would have no hesitation using her again.

Alicia was fantastic with our 13 month old boy. He was recovering from an illness and couldn't go to nursery so we booked through sitters only the day before to come for 5 hours while I did some work from home. Alicia called to confirm on the morning of the booking, she arrived on time and kept my son entertained all day. She was so enthusiastic and he really enjoyed playing with her. She even managed to get him down for his afternoon nap. It was lovely to hear them playing together and meant I could focus on work knowing he was happy and safe.
