Choose the local carers you’d prefer us to offer your bookings
to first and we’ll keep you updated of progress by email.


Your childcarer will call you before the booking and you should pay

Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

This was my first time using the site and I was a little apprehensive. It was also a last minute thing so I was anxious about that too, but as soon as we walked in the door, Rebecca put me and my 6 year old son at ease. She was so calming and friendly and my son thought she was great. I phoned to check on the kids and Rebecca was very reassuring and I really enjoyed a rare night out totally confident that all was well at home. I will definitely be asking for Rebecca next time! Thank you :).

Our first booking with Michelle was absolutely perfect and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending her. Putting us at ease upon meeting us, she also advised us during the evening that Myles had woken up and upon realising it wasn't me had become upset but she had dealt with it and he slept through. Michelle was exactly as her reviews had stated - calm, confident, able to deal with any issue competently - and I look forward to her building a long standing relationship with myself and Myles.

Fran was amazing! I am a paranoid first time mum who's 2year old has only ever been left with family. Fran turned up promptly which gave me extra time for reassurance. She kept me updated during the day what they were up to. At the end of the day from what Fran told me my son had been doing I know he felt comfortable and was himself. I hope we can have you back soon! Huge thank you from the bottom of my heart for caring so well for my pride and joy. Xx.
