Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...
Melba came to babysit our 4 year old and our 6 week old. She was amazing from beginning to end!! She has a natural love for children. It was our first time leaving our youngest and she made everything feel at ease! I was definitely nervous at the thought of leaving our kids with a stranger, but as soon as we met her, our minds were put at ease. We never once felt worried or uneasy! We will definitely use her again when we are in the area!
She's the first "stranger" to look after my son, Charlie, and I was a bit apprehensive about the whole experience, especially as he hadnt settled before I'd left. I felt at ease with Marie though and felt happy to leave Charlie in her care. I was delighted to receive a text message from her, not long after I'd left, to let me know that he'd gone to sleep - a big relief and a really thoughtful thing for her to do.
Sarah was great. She won my 21 month old daughter over within minutes of arriving and we rushed out the door with my daughter smiling in Sarah's arms. She looked after her beautifully, providing a variety of stimulating activities throughout the day and they clearly had a great time together. I will certainly be requesting Sarah again and would highly recommend her.
