Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

I just wanted to say what a delight Amanda Wright was when she came to look after my 3 children last night. The kids absolutely loved her and my 6 year old daughter even asked me this morning when Amanda would be coming again to look after her- she usually hates us going anywhere without her! She also had the unenviable task of clearing up an accident my recently potty trained 3 yeear old had, but she took it all in her stride and even changed his bedding for me as he had managed to soil it. I just wanted to say a massive well done, we were both very impressed with her.

This was the first time we had used and Samantha our sitter put us totally at ease as soon as she arrived. Our daughter was desperate to meet Samantha, so ended up staying awake until she arrived. Samantha shook our daughters hand and introduced herself showing her, her sitters ID, which she loved as it made her feel like a big girl. Samantha text us an hour later to let us know there were no problems, which allowed us to enjoy our evening without worrying about anything. All in all would definitely recommend Samantha and will definitely request her again.

Iryna was friendly and professional. She was on time and prior to that had called to let me know she will be coming. She was excellent with my child. It was the first time in more than 7 years leaving my 8 year old with someone other than family and I had peace of mind because she showed that she's experienced and more than able to cope with her. My child stated the next morning that she would love to have Iryna back whenever I choose to go on a night out.. Yipee, hopefully I can get my social life back on track. It has been long overdue. Thanks for everything.
