Here's how Sitters works


Start by entering your postcode to set up your FREE
account and read reviews about childcarers local to you.


You can then book childcare online – just select the
date, time and address for your booking.


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
her for her time at the end. Rates start from just £8.75.


Pay nothing until after you have used Sitters - guaranteed. A booking
fee (£4-£6) and quarterly membership fee (£14.95) will only be
charged to your credit card after your booking has taken place.

Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

I had Nataliya watch my 9 week old baby while I packed up my flat to move. She is clearly excellent with babies and was absolutely lovely and attentiv e with her the entire time. She's the first person I've met that isn't fami ly I would feel comfortable leaving my daughter alone with.

Debra is a really lovely, kind, warm person and we all clicked immediately! I was really happy with the way Debra got on with my 5 year old, and I felt very safe and secure heading out the door, look forward to having Debra back, lots!

Georgia struck an instant bond with my daughter giving me peace of mind leaving her with my daughter for the 1st time. She is friendly, lovely and warm at 1st encounter. She is creative keeping my daughter engaged.
