Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Frances is a very professional, warm and lovely carer. My son was very upset when I left but Frances managed to get him settled and gave me regular updates which was great. Both my son (5) and daughter (4) had great fun. It was the first time I had left them in the evening so I knew it would be tricky but with Frances being so calm and warm I think we will definitely attempt it again. Would highly recommend Frances!

Frances was a absolute dream to have. My daughter was distressed when I left and Frances calmed her down within mins and interacted with her playing games. Frances also cooled my daughter down when she was sleeping as was sweating buckets. Frances is polite and a lovely kind lady. I'd recommend her to everybody and I'll have her again.

Was very hesitant about booking a sitter as the whole experience is new to us. So I called Frances in advance to understand our expectations of her i.e would she bath our two year old, feed him etc. I was reassured as to how best she would care for our son whilst my husband and I treated ourselves to a night at the cinema. Our son was a bit weary at first which is typical but soon warmed to Frances and I left him to engage with her whilst I ran his bath and they seemed to be getting on very well. So much so that as my husband and I left he was so busy playing with Frances that he paid little attention to us leaving. He felt comfortable enough to even call her Aunty Frances which was so sweet. Whilst we were out, Frances put him to bed with ease and sent us a message to let us know that he went to bed willingly which is rare for us. Would definitely have Frances babysit for us again. Especially as our son got on with her well. We felt comfortable leaving her in our home and the entire experience was positive. Thank you sitters for enabling my husband and I to have a night out.
