Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

My daughter has had various sitters, but not having had to use 'sitters' for a while my daughter was rather anxious at having someone she didn't know. However, Patricia was very relaxed and soon my daughter was settled and waving me out the door, going to bed with no issue and Patricia sent me a text letting me know what was happening.. My daughters reaction the following day.."Patricia is really nice and friendly, I'd happily have her look after me again!" a very happy child and mum!!!

Selda was wonderful with our 15 month old boy. She arrived early and our son took to her immediately. Her calm and friendly nature was immediately reassuring. She played games with him and kept us updated with texts and video. Came home to find them playing games together and our son completely engaged in the activity. We could not be happier and we would be delighted to have her look after him again.

Carol is so lovely, clearly very experienced with children and also loves animals, which is great for us with a dog in the house! I was anxious before going out as it was the first time i had to leave someone else to put my one year old to bed. Carol handled the situation with ease and quickly put my mind at rest. I would like to have Carol as preference number 1 please for all future sittings.
