Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

We have struggled in recent years to find a reliable baby sitter. The sitters service has been a great find with alternative options for any date. All of our sitters to date have been great but Katherine has been an absolute pleasure to deal with and very much our favourite. She has a really easy manner with our boys who are older 12 & 15, my younger son who is a bit cautious normally is really comfortable and regularly chats with her about football (she is a fan herself). We would have no hesitation in recommending Katherine to anyone.

Donna looked after our two boys for the first time last night. Right from the outset it was clear that Donna was very professional in her approach yet incredibly friendly. She asked lots of questions about the boys and we felt very confident leaving them with her after just ten minutes. The boys enjoyed being with her, playing some games during the evening, but equally she ensured that agreed bed times were met with minimum fuss. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Donna to anyone who requires a sitter.

Sonia was like an angel waking through the door when I needed last minute childcare and one of my kids was even sick. The booking was actually for my baby but when my son had to be off school becasue he was sick she took it in her stride and made him feel better. When I got back they were reading together on the sofa. Sonia is so kind, energetic and has a lovely presence. Hope to see her again.
