Here's how Sitters works


Start by entering your postcode to set up your FREE

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...

We were lucky enough to be introduced to Carol, and we couldn't be more grateful. She was easy to reach & responded quickly. She knows children extremely well and is able to handle them easily. I was able to leave the house having given her minimal instruction and when I returned home my boy was in the bed. I was able to be in the house without having to give her any help at all. It is clear she has a great deal of experience and is confident in childcare. I would recommend her, will see you soon. Thanks Carol.

Noreen was just fabulous! She called the evening prior to the booking, arrived very promptly on the day and immediately put my mind at ease. My son is 13 weeks old and it was the first time I had left him with a minder. Noreen is very experienced and knows what she is doing. I felt comfortable leaving my son in her care for the day. She sent me updates on how things were going throughout the day. Highly recommend Noreen and hope to see her again in our home .
