Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Claire was fantastic! She turned up to a completely disorganised house with me half ready trying to get my son's dinner ready whilst getting dressed myself for a ball. She was completely un- phased and immediately put me at ease, and my 3 children who had never met her before. They all thought she was fantastic, even my 12 year old son - especially as she watched the football with him! She even cleared up after my son's very messy dinner so not only did I come home to happy children, but also to a lovely tidy kitchen. Would thoroughly recommend.

1st time i've used sitters and 1st time I've left my kids with someone other than family. Very happy with the service provided. Sarah was great, I really felt at ease going out for the nite (&had a great evening too!) and came home to a lovely quiet, calm environment with all kids sound asleep!!! Many thanks, will def recommend to friends and already looking forward to having another nite out soon.

We cannot rate Julia highly enough. 100% reliable even with ice and snow on the roads. My son was totally happy to stay with Julia despite being poorly and Julia did some lovely activities with him. I have no hesitations leaving Julia in charge and I know I will be returning to a very happy little boy when I get back.
