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.

Traveling from Paris to Newcastle, staying in a hotel and finding a sitter to look after our 2 kids of 3 and 5 couldn't have been easier. We were so happy to find Cheryl through your service and right up until the day, we were kept informed of our arrangements and really looked after. It is not easy leaving your children with a new person and not only that, although my kids understand English they only respond in French. Hats off to Cheryl, who despite this little detail, managed to put my kids at ease and they took to her instantly. i would recommend Cheryl to anyone in search of a sitter, she is kind and very attentive. Next time we are in the neighbourhood I will book her again. Thanks for everything, Cheryl. Tracy from Paris, France.
