Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Nicola was thoroughly professional and calm and confident with our two children on location. She rang a few days in advance to talk through details and listen to our preferences etc and she was reassuring and understanding. She was great with our three year old boy and kept him entertained whilst she also cared for our six week old daughter. She cared for them in such a way that they had a lovely time. We are extremely grateful to her for her professionalism and flexibility and we wouldn't hesitate to ask her again.

It was an absolute joy to meet Ada D, and leave her in charge of our son for the evening. It was the first time I had ever left him with a sitter I hadn't met before, and also the first time I had used this website. She immediately put me at ease and was very kind and patient in helping me get him settled to sleep. She sent me regular text updates to reassure me that everything was ok, so I was able to relax. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Very many thanks to Sitters for organising her for me.

Was great to meet Daphne. As you say on your website, parents use Sitters as a last resort, but now I wonder why I didn't use it before! I left my 3 year old with Daphne during the day so I could go to yoga class. I have never managed to leave the house so easily without a screaming match! My daughter loved her and the pair of them had a really nice time. Its a sign of a true natural I think, when I child relaxes with them so quickly. I will definitely use Daphne again and would happily recommend her.
