Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Maxine arrived and immediately made a proessional and reassuring impression. Our 8 month old is becoming aware of who mummy and daddy are and where they are so is quite clingy. At first there were tears when we introduced Maxine but Maxine came and played with myself and our daughter on the floor and our daughter soon was happily playing and comfortable with her. She sent us a text confirming all was well me way through the evening which gave us piece of mind. Would have no hesitation in recommending Maxine.

Tracey phoned the night before to introduce herself and find out about the children as she had an early introduction to them the next day which was nice. She went straight in at the deep end as they had only just woke up but seemed at ease with her when I left and when I returned they told me all about their day and had done lots of activities and were so happy that she had played games with them too. They would be very pleased to have Tracey look after them agin as would I.

Sue was wonderful looking after my boy for a nice long afternoon while I was out for the day. She was happy to do everything and I would be more than happy to use her again.
