Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Noreen was delightful from the moment she arrived. Our 3 year old daughter warmed to her immediately, and they settled down to read some stories - we left without her looking up to say goodbye! She was unphased by looking after both our 3 year old and our little 10 week old daughter. She texted us whilst we were out which was very reassuring, especially as it was the first time we had been out since the little one was born. We would love to have Noreen back, but we're only temporarily in London, so we won't be able to! We'd recommend her to any family.

We have not had a babysitter before so this was a big step for us. All of us (myself, partner and children) were very happy with Jane. In fact my one-year-old was practically pushing us out of the door after ten minutes with her! She seemed very calm, experienced and unfazed by my three-year-old's usual tantrums at bedtime. Extremely satisfied with the whole thing and will use your service again - it opens up whole new vistas of possibilities for us!

Gayle came and sat for our two daughters aged 4 and 2 for the first time last weekend. She was prompt, absolutely delightful, had an immediate rapport with both of the girls. She played some lovely games with my older daughter until bedtime, and has been declared the "best babysitter ever"! She was very flexible about us getting back a little later than originally booked. We hope to have her back soon.
