Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

I was a little apprehensive about leaving my 5 year old with a minder when in London for a weekend but I needn't have worried. Marcela was amazing. Kind, knowledgable and very friendly, she got it off with my son immediately and I enjoyed taking the time to get to know her a little. I am so pleased that I met her and have immediately put her down as my 1st preference for when I am in that area. I would not hesitate to recommend her for sitting and would like to say thank you for putting my mind at ease - I honestly felt confident and happy to know that my child was in her care.

Fantastic i was a little bit nervous as we have never left our daughter with any one except family, she sat with madison and we left them on the sofa chatting we felt totally at ease with her linda she was fantastic and in the morning we asked madison she said she wanted linda to sit again.Being local to us also helped with the confidence and her being another mummy was great .We will use this service again and agin .so pleased to have found this service thanks Janine and Paul.

Having only had grandparents put him to bed, Marisa arrived to find my normally very placid 3yr old boy NOT wanting to go to bed, I wasn't ready to go out and all was chaos. She kindly played and talked to him while I got ready and convinced me to go out when wasn't sure to leave him. She texted me later to let me know all was well and I was totally happy in the knowledge that he was happy with her. You're top of my list Marisa, Ned was talking about you this morning :) x.
