Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Maria has babysat for us three times, the first time when our lo was just 4 months old. The first time we wanted Maria to get to know and meet our lo, so we stayed home that evening and got on with life admin while Maria played with the baby and attempted to calm her for sleep. Our lo is a bad sleeper but Maria coped really well with all the crying! So we felt reassured Maria and our lo would be OK the next time we went out, and they were! Maria has always been punctual and professional. She kept in touch by text, which was very reassuring. We wouldn't hesitate to book her again.

Another wonderful babysitter! Our second time using and another success. Lesaria was an excellent babysitter for our 16 month old very shy daughter. She immediately made her feel comfortable and at ease. Lesaria is clearly very experience and loves babies/young children. She was very child focused and took excellent care of our daughter. She was very playful and put her at ease. She also took excellent physical care of our daughter, changing her nappy and feeding her dinner. We will definitely use her again! Thank you so much for helping to put our nerves at ease too!

Kim was looking after our 3yo on a Sunday afternoon and from the moment I met her I felt confident of leaving our girl with her: our daughter is usually reserved/ shy towards strangers, but in this instance she warmed up to Kim almost instantly. Anushka also doesn't like us leaving home without her, so there's always some degree of fuss, but she didn't even notice when we left the house as she was busy reading books with Kim. We came back to happy and fed kid who was dissappointed that Kim had to leave and we would definitely choose Kim again in the future if she's available!
