Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Jane was fantastic! She took such wonderful care of my son Luca at our hotel while we attended a wedding in the area. She instantly bonded with him which made us feel completely at ease leaving him for such a long period. She made note of all the wonderful things they did together which was great to read through as I could picture their day. She also brought extra toys and books and did a colour/sticker picture together with him both for mummy and daddy. It was so lovely to come home to :-) I would definitely recommend Jane. It was reassuring knowing Luca was in such good hands.

Liz was just wonderful! She looked after my 2 daughters and niece at our hotel whilst we attended a wedding. The girls took to Liz instantly and all of us adults felt so comfortable leaving them with her so we could enjoy the evening. When we popped up to see if things were ok (which we definitely didn't need to do), Liz was relaxed and happily getting our little madams off to sleep. If you need someone who puts you and your kids at ease straight away, and cracks on in a relaxed and warm way, Liz is your lady! Now if only we can convince her to move closer to where we live ;).

Snezana arrived 5 minutes early and burst through the door full of smiles and energy. My 5 year old immediately fell in love with her as she looks like a princess. ...and things got even better when Snezana revealed that she had brought some activities for them to do. 5 and 7 year old had great fun making necklaces and bracelets with her before she read them stories, brushed their teeth and put them to bed. I was pleased that she texted me once the kids were settled. I would have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful and charming blonde Mary Poppins to friends.
