Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...
Sohier was amazing because she called me the confirm that she needed to be at my house as early as 6am and this was no problem for her. As I was working in Europe I didn't get to meet her personally but I feel like I have because we have exchanged many texts. My husband mentioned she was lovely and he left her without even the kids being awake. They both have reported to us that Sohier was is great and that is just what I needed to hear as this is the first time I have had to get care like this for my 4 and 6 year old. Thanks Sohier you were fantastic hope we can get you next time.
Claire has been a wonderful babysitter. Both times she immediately engaged with our children and put them at ease. She has a natural and easy way with them and makes them laugh. She is always keen to teach them something new or to help them to see another point of view. She is not just a sitter but someone who takes the time to get to know your children and remembers the smallest details about them. In addition, Claire ensures that she relays all necessary information on your return which I find most valuable. She comes highly recommended by us. My children are 13, 11 and 8.
Louise A was our first ever sitter and we were naturally nervous about leaving our 11year old girl child and 11 month old boy child for the first time. Louise was utterly brilliant. Straight in and playing with the youngest whilst engaging with the eldest about her day at school. Her experience was evident and she completely reassured us within minutes. To add to this mid way through the evening our eldest text to inform that "Louise is EPIC!" High praise indeed. Using Sitters.co.uk was the best decision, we'll definitely be requesting Louise A again very soon. Thank you!
