Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...
We booked Francoise as last minute emergency childcare for the youngest of our daughters. Francoise was exceptional, she called the night before, turned up in plenty of time and immediately enamoured herself to all 3 of our children. So much so in fact that I had to wrestle the other 2 away because they wanted to stay with her, even the cat loved her. We would love it if Francoise was able to sit for us again because we have absolute confidence in her competence with our children which is very reassuring when leaving them for work or a very rare night out! Thanks Francoise. x.
Anna was just wonderful! She arrived early so we had time to show her around as we had not met before. My daughter (age 12) and son (age 9) immediately warmed to her and were chatting away. Coincidently Anna went to the same school so we left them happily chatting about teachers! She sent texts during the evening to say the children were fine (and our 3 dogs had settled too!) one of our dogs even tried to leave with her!! We all thought she was just fab and have already used Sitters to book her again. We are really pleased to have found her.
Tricia was our first experience with using sitters and we were really happy. She called us the evening prior to confirm arrangements. She arrived earlier than expected and was very friendly and approachable. My two girls instantly began chatting and felt very comfortable with her, which put our minds at rest. Tricia even read them a bedtime story and they were really disappointed that she wasn't there in the morning! We would definitely use Tricia again and have no hesitations in using the sitters service for future occasions.
