Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

I was very happy with Bina and most importantly so was my son. I have a 3 week old and 3 year old and Bina was an excellent help to me. It was important for me to have someone who could help out with my 3 year old whilst I took care of my newborn and who didn't mind me being around most of the time. Bina also helped me with my newborn without even being asked to. She sees what needs to be done and does it. Bina is a very hard worker and extremely good with kids. I really liked that Bina is caring and very thorough with her care of children. I was very impressed with Bina.

Susan was fantastic. She was kind, punctual, and very professional. My 21 months old daughter was taking her lunch nap when Susan showed up. Susan said she would text me with updates. One hour later, her text arrived saying that my daughter was doing well and warmed up to her very quickly. When I got home, two of them were really having fun together. Susan brought her own books and toys. She also gave my daughter a book as a gift because my daughter really loved that book. Will recommend Susan to anyone who needs a sitter and will definitely request her again.

Nadica was our first ever non-family member babysitter. Our son (6 and a half months) was instantly drawn to her warm and calm manner and played with her with no problem. We spent the first two hours unpacking boxes from our house move and could hear the baby's giggles coming from the sitting room. Nadica even managed to get him to have a nap - something we have rarely succeeded with! We had no hesitation leaving Nadica at home alone with our baby and enjoyed a baby free lunch for a change! We have made her our preferred carer and hope to see her again soon.
