Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Gaynor was amazing from the start - she arrived ten minutes early and was professional and friendly. She didn't bat an eyelid when our daughter got up from bed, refusing to go back, and Gaynor promptly got out a few books and started reading to her, so that my Husband and I could pop out the door. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend! :D.

Very impressed. In her confirmation phone call she was both friendly and bu sinesslike, just the right mix. She arrived on time and immediately began i nteracting with our very tired son. She clearly took her queues from him an d was keen to engage with him but not overwhelm him. We left feeling sure t hat whatever happened while we were out, she could deal with it swiftly, co nfidently and entirely appropriately. Read that back, makes her sound like a machine but she was a lovely, friendly and approachable young woman. Perf ect in fact for all our babysitting needs.

Susan came to look after my ten year old during an extra half-term week whilst I was working and there were no other childcare options available. I was worried that my daughter would be bored, not having the company of other children but Susan kept her very well occupied and my daughter enjoyed her company. I felt very well communicated with and reassured that my daughter was well looked after.
