Here's how Sitters works


Start by entering your postcode to set up your FREE
account and read reviews about childcarers local to you.


You can then book childcare online – just select the
date, time and address for your booking.


Choose the local carers you’d prefer us to offer your bookings
to first and we’ll keep you updated of progress by email.


Your childcarer will call you before the booking and you should pay
her for her time at the end. Rates start from just £8.25.


Pay nothing until after you have used Sitters - guaranteed. A booking
fee (£4-£6) and quarterly membership fee (£14.95) will only be
charged to your credit card after your booking has taken place.

Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Alison was lovely and friendly and I immediately felt at ease leaving my toddler with her. Would certainly book her again.

Melanie was a lovely pleasant lady. She arrived on time and I felt at ease with her looking after my little boy.

Janine was a great hit with the children. I would definately want Janine to babysit again.
