Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

First time using Sitters and really impressed with Debbie. We'd not left our little boy with someone we didn't know before so I was a bit anxious. However Debbie immediately made me feel at ease. She called to confirm details before coming; and she was very friendly and professional when she arrived. As planned, Debbie got to the house just before our little boy went to bed and he warmed to her straight away. She even sent me a text message about half an hour after we'd gone out to say that all was well and he was fast asleep. Will definitely use Debbie again.

Diane was terrific. This was the first time my children (3 and 10 months) had seen her (or indeed any babysitter who wasn't their grandparents) but it only took ten minutes for my normally-shy three-year-old daughter to really warm to her, and at bedtime she really enjoyed reading a story together with her. Diane also handled a difficult baby exceptionally well. I felt like she was exceptionally safe hands to leave my children in. Thank you Diane.

When Wendy arrived, she instantly inspired confidence. She had a friendly, interactive and competent manner, and my son took to her very quickly. We talked through his interests and routines, and the evening went smoothly. I didn't feel the need to fret or worry while I was away from the house, as I was happy that things would go well. I'd be very happy to have Wendy look after my son again next time I go out.
