Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Our 2,5 year old had a fantastic time with Kerin while we went out to celebrate my birthday. Kerin arrived with a big smile and immediately engaged with our son. He was really taken by her and in no time our son was having a blast with Kerin playing with the balloons she had brought with her (there was A LOT of laughing from him). That meant he was absolutely fine waving goodbye to mommy and daddy and of course we could relax and have a wonderful evening together as a couple. This was the first time Kerin babysat for us but she is DEFINITELY our preferred nr 1 babysitter!

This was our first time using Sitters so we were a bit apprehensive about leaving our 2yr old with a stranger. Our minds were immediately put at ease when Elise arrived. She arrived with a big smile and very friendly and warm demeanour (Mary Poppins came to mind). She was engaging with our son from the first moment to which he responded very well. He really connected with her and even waved us goodbye when we left with a big smile on his face, no tears! I would highly recommend Elise and I hope to book her again in future even though she is not local to us.

Elise was my first babysitter from Sitters so I was a little nervous especially as my son gets very anxious around new people. All my worries were put to rest very quickly. My 3 year old daughter ran off to play with Elise within minutes. I got a call from my 12 year old son before I came home to tell me 'the babysitter is amazing!' which is an almost unheard of thing for him to say. My children are very different characters and ages but I felt Elise tuned into what they both needed straight away. I hope we will see her again.
