Here's how Sitters works


Start by entering your postcode to set up your FREE
account and read reviews about childcarers local to you.


You can then book childcare online – just select the
date, time and address for your booking.


Choose the local carers you’d prefer us to offer your bookings
to first and we’ll keep you updated of progress by email.


Your childcarer will call you before the booking and you should pay
her for her time at the end. Rates start from just £8.25.


Pay nothing until after you have used Sitters - guaranteed. A booking
fee (£4-£6) and quarterly membership fee (£14.95) will only be
charged to your credit card after your booking has taken place.

Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Sherron was nothing short of brilliant! First of all, being new to using Sitters, she agreed to meet with us before the booking to meet our little one (15 months old) who she'd be looking after. On the day she arrived promptly and made sure she knew the routine for getting our little one settled and into bed. Before we'd left the house she was carrying and talking with our little one who was barely aware we were still there! Throughout the night Sherron sent messages to let us know everything was alright and really helped us feel at ease. We could not be happier.

Jayne was really friendly and helpful. She is great with kids and they immediately took to her. She is a happy and easy-going child-minder with a lot of experience. No hesitation in recommending her.

Sharon was excellent with our 2 1/2-year old and 10-month old. Both felt at ease with her straight away and we were confident leaving them with her for a very long day. Highly recommended.
