Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

We were so impressed with Loraine and would highly recommend her. We joined Sitters for help finding a babysitter to take care of 3 children and a dog whilst we went to a wedding. It was a long job and so we were a little apprehensive booking someone we had never met. She put us at ease with text messages before the day and so we knew we were in good hands. Loraine was prompt, thoughtful, neat and tidy and left us with a thorough report of the things they'd got up to. The children loved her and had a superb day. Thank you Loraine. Hope to see you again.

Really great carer, extremely professional and experienced and left us feeling very confident to leave both our girls in her care for the evening. One of our girls woke up and Ngisti was sat chatting with her when we came back (she never goes straight back to sleep!)...our daughter was really sad when she had to go home!! She absolutely loved her and still talks about 'Mary Poppins' two weeks later. We would absolutely use her again and recommend her. Thankyou so much Ngisti!

This was the first time I had ever left my children in the care of someone who isn't family. Sharon was incredibly professional and dealt with my anxieties in a very calm way. I went out for the evening confident that the children were in good hands. She contacted me as soon as she accepted the evening and an hour before she was due to turn up. I was very pleased with how it went and would be delighted if she sat for me again in the future.
