Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

I can recommend Fatma without hesitation. She was brilliant. She has a lovely energy and immediately put my two year old daughter (who isn't used to being left with a stranger) at ease and by the time I was ready to leave, she was having so much fun playing that she barely said goodbye. Due to a late nap, she didn't go to bed until 10pm so if Fatma had to keep her entertained until then, which she did without grumbling. When my daughter was finally tired, she went to sleep without any tears or protest. This is somewhat of a miracle! Thanks Fatma - I'll definitely ask for you again.

I had to meet with a client at very short notice. Sitters were very responsive and got in touch with me quickly, following my web enquiry. It seemed that Atare O was perfect and I was pleased that she was available, and when she called me first thing in the morning of the booking, my mind was put at rest. She was very friendly, professional, prompt and a very nice person too. A real pleasure to have around my 11 year old twin boys. They were very happy with her being around and made it clear that for future babysitting only Atare would do. Thank you so much and see you soon.

Selda is wonderful. Calm, reassuring and incredibly kind, she instantly put us at ease when we met. Having our toddler for a very long day, she kept us updated on how their day was going, so our mind was always at ease. She was also willing to stay later than anticipated when were were delayed getting home. It was great to hear how much fun they'd had together. Selda has looked after our little boy on a couple of ocassions now and even though there have been big gaps inbetween, our son remembers her with great fondness. We would love to have reason to see her more often!
