Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

It was my first time to use babysitter who wasn't a family member and also first time to use Sitters services. The whole process was so easy. I was kept informed all the way through. Becky called in advance and arrived when she said she would. She was very friendly and I felt at ease with her straight away. I had no issues with leaving her in our home alone with my daughter. I felt she could be trusted. Her presence gave me back my independence so was absolutely invaluable. I have already booked her again and would recommend Sitters services to my friends.

I have to say the first time I met Mina P, I knew she is the childminder best suited for my son. What I loved about her is as soon as she arrived her focus was on my son. She is very very caring and has a unique way of interacting with kids. Her warm nature quickly caught my son's attention and he worked well with her. She was really friendly and we interacted well. I have met many child minders but with Mina P, her caring is natural, hence her impact on her work is excellent. She definitely is a childminder I would want always for my son. Thank you Mina.

We were so pleased to have had Catherine for the evening. She was wonderful. She had such a hard job looking after my two extremely lively and excited little boys in a small hotel room. She kept them entertained in very difficult circumstances, and even got them to sleep. Next morning they were chatting away about her and clearly loved having her with them. We were very uncertain as this was the first time we had used Sitters and it was such a difficult task but she was great. We felt very happy to leave them with her. Thank you very much Catherine.
