We have been extremely happy with the service. We have our 3 top sitters, however when we have new ones coming the kids are always relaxed because they know whoever comes is going to be fantastic, and is going to make them feel at ease. Always very punctual. Couldn't recommend Sitters enough!!

Sitters childcarers love what they do

"I've worked with children for over 30 years. Sitters is perfect for me, it gives me flexibility, the team are always available to help and the families are lovely."

Susan, London SE5

"I joined Sitters several years ago to provide a second income in my spare time. Being a graduate teacher and a school governor as well as working with children under 5 at my local council, I felt right at home. The experience has been great - the staff at Sitters have been amazingly helpful and supportive."

Manjola, London NW5

"Joining Sitters was the best thing I have ever done! It gives me the freedom to work around my school hours and I love that my name changes at every sitting..."shoe", "soup"... occasionally I get "Sue"!!"

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.

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.
