Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Hi Phil babysat for my 6 year old daughter. He called to check I was ok with a make carer & he reassured me by being very professional. Phil arrived early to meet both myself & my daughter who was happy for Phil to stay. He offered to watch a dvd or read a book or plus games nothing was too much trouble. Phil sent me a message advising my daughter was settled which allowed me to enjoy my night out know my daughter was safe, well cared for & settled. Thank you very much Phil.

Katarina is the first carer we have used and like any parent, we are protective of our children. However, she was excellent, very experienced and the children were completely safe in her care, testament to her experience and we wil definately request her again for the future. Our daughter took to her straight way and we were able to go out and have some quality time together without worry. Thank you Katarina and thank you Sitters for an excellent choice in carer.

Helen was fantastic. I needed someone to keep an eye on my 1-year-old while I attended to some work at home. She kept my son engaged and happy for the entire 3 hours! Even I can't pull that off! I could kind of overhear what was happening downstairs from my office and I kept waiting for that inevitable fussy or unhappy moment. It never came. Would definitely use Helen again!
