Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Sam babysat for us last night and it was the first time that we'd left our three month old with a non family member so we had been a little nervous. Turned out we had no need to be nervous at all. Sam was fabulous. It was clear from the moment she met our son that she has a real love of children and she took care of him wonderfully while we were out. She arrived exactly on time and sent us regular updates (as, unfortunately, he wasn't asleep the whole time!) We would definitely use Sam again and would recommend her to others. Our first "sitters.co.uk" experience has been very good.

Magdalena is an amazing babysitter. She called even before not just to confirm that she is coming but also to get information about our daughter, from big things like when she eats till details like if she sleeps with lights off, with doors open or close etc. She paid attention to everything. And even more, she arrived early and we quickly went through everything one more time so that we are on the same page. That made our leaving so much easier. We did get updates throughout the evening and so she made us to enjoy our event at ease. Definitely would like her to sit our baby again.

Linda came to look after our three children (who are 12, 8 and 5 respectively) whilst we attended a family wedding in the area. She came at noon and looked after them until a bit after 8pm. She set them at ease and engaged with them straight away, and they had a lovely day in her care. In the words of my 12-year-old (Jack): "Linda is ultra super nice and it was a fantastic day." In the words of my 8-year-old (William): "Linda was very kind and it was very fun with her." Finally, in the words of my 5-year-old (Olivia): "I love you Linda". Thank you Linda - much appreciated!
