Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

I'd never used a professional baby sitter before so was a little nervous of leaving my children with someone I hadn't previously met but as per other reviews, I can highly recommend Rebecca. As soon as we met and I saw how she interacted with the children, my mind was at rest. She asked lots of pertinent questions about the kids bed time routine and just got stuck in right away. She was friendly, professional and punctual and the kids really enjoyed her company too.

Quratulain (Deena) was really great with the kids, very quickly got them settled and started reading books and playing games with them so both us and the kids were at ease. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Deena, she was great. She is also a fantastic artist! Amazing work!

Phil was punctual and reassuring. The children all loved him, especially his storytelling.
