Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Debbie is amazing and will always be our first choice. We hired her for the whole day and evening so we could attend a wedding. This was the first time our 3 year old son had been left with someone else for so long, and Debbie was absolutely fantastic. Our son instantly bonded with her and was not at all phased by us leaving. This was entirely down to the way Debbie engaged with him when she arrived, and she was fun, approachable and kind. My son absolutely loved her and talked about her after she left, and he clearly had a fantastic day with her. We can't wait to get her back!

We really liked Kerry, she arrived with a box of goodies for my two children to rummage through, lots of different toys with flashing lights & noises etc, it broke the ice straight away. My son has been struggling with meeting new babysitters and gets very upset when I leave him with someone new but after being a little worried to start with he was very happy with Kerry's company and was happy to see me leave! I arrived home to both of our children grinning from ear to ear. Kerry was friendly and chatty, we hope to have her back again soon.

Susan was a super-support needed to get our night off to a great start. Susan rang ahead and offered to bring board games for the children. They loved this and Susan's demeanour was smiley, soft with a firm-centre ...sounds like a sweet? Yes, she was. We will ask for her as our preferred babysitter. You see, with two very different children, the challenge is to be sufficiently adaptable and at bedtime, without parents around...this becomes the litmuss test. 10/10. Thank you Susan. We hope to see you soon.
