Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

First time I was using sitters. Colleen arrived early and presented her ID on arrival. She was friendly to the kids (aged 7 and 3). She spoke about her experience providing childcare services and I could see she loved this job and takes it very seriously. She enquired about any medications, allergies or any information she needed to know. I found her quite pleasant and so did my kids. All in all, it was a good experience and I definitely recommend Colleen as a babysitter.

I used the agency for the first time last night and i have to admit i was very aprehensive..... but within minutes of meeting Joanne i was completly relaxed. I found her friendly, professional and most importantly trustworthy. I felt completly at ease and confident that my child was safe in her care. I feel like a massive strain has been lifted and finally allowing me some time of my own with my child in safe hands and secure in his own bed in his own home.

Mina is everything that I could ask for in a sitter. She is incredibly intelligent, trustworthy, professional, and very easy to communicate with. I recently had her to care for my children and I couldn't be happier. My boys love her already! I believe that she is great as she brings new ideas for them to learn from. I am looking forward to ask Mina caring for my children for the long run. Thank you Mina You are magnificent .
