Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Renee cared for our six month old son when I had a last minute keeping in touch day at work. She was very calm and took our handover in her stride and instantly made us feel comfortable about getting on with our day. Having asked Renee to keep me updated as to how they were getting on over WhatsApp, I was so impressed with the regularity she sent photos and little stories about their day together. She seemed to instantly understand that this was the first time we had left our little boy in someone else's care. I thought she was an excellent carer and would definitely recommend her.

Sarah was our first sitter and I was concerned my 2 girls were going to be nervous and anxious about us leaving them with a sitter they had never met. The moment Sarah arrived through the door both our girls were in love with her! She has a very open and friendly personality that instantly made everyone feel like she was a friend we had known for years. The girls had a lovely time with her and very much enjoyed waking up to find their own personal colouring pictures drawn by Sarah waiting for them outside their bedroom door. A very nice touch! We will definitely book Sarah again.

Elaine looked after our 11 year old last night. She was helpfully communicative leading up to the date she was booked and we kept in contact which gave a real feeling of security. She was prompt and immediately interacting with our son and put his mind at ease (he can be a bit wobbly being left with anyone other than family). The evening went very smoothly and Elaine's feedback on our return was really useful. Our son was fast asleep and relaxed and this morning said how he'd happily be looked after again by Elaine. Couldn't be a better outcome! Thanks Elaine.
