Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Nicola was fantastic with my head strong 2 year old daughter. She brought some books along with her which my daughter loved, she was very friendly and professional. Read a bed time story and managed to get my little one to sleep in her own bed without any fuss. Sent us a lovely message to let us know that the little one was asleep and all was well which really helped me to relax and stop worrying about how things were at home. I would highly recommend Nicola and will definitely use her again.

Brilliant!! She immediately made me feel at ease. Down to earth, she's a sitter i would absolutely book again without a shadow of a doubt.

I hadn't left my son with anyone he'd never me before in all 13 months of his life, so I was a little terrified about leaving him with Melanie. But what a fool I was! When she walked in the door I could immediately tell that she was an expert at dealing with children of his age. He warmed to her very quickly. No tears as I left. And a text from Melanie at bedtime which said 'Wilf is settled and asleep in his cot'. It was music to my ears. She was happy to discuss a few things on the phone before she turned up at our house as well which put my mind at rest that I hadn't actually met her. I would definitely make her my number one choice if I need a sitter again. Thank you Melanie!
