Here's how Sitters works


Start by entering your postcode to set up your FREE

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...

Julie was the first baby sitter we used, other than family members, so we were a little unsure about the whole process at first. However, we were put at ease after reading Julie's great reviews and even more so after she made contact prior to the evening of the booking. When Julie arrived she quickly engaged and played with our son which give us an immediate sense of reassurance. Whilst out we received a quick update letting us know all was fine which we really appreciated. We definitely recommend Julie and will hopefully be using her services again soon.

Kids love Janice!! So do we. If the kids know we're going out & ask who's babysitting - if the answer is 'Janice' they all shout "YAY!". And that's saying something with my kids :-). Janice is so calm and confident, we never worry about leaving our kids with her. She always brings books & entertainment with her as, even when we already have the books, it seems so much more exciting for the kids to read the copy Janice brought. She truly listens to what the kids say & always reports back on what they've talked. Janice is magical!!!

We are very happy that Ange came to babysit for us! She contacted me earlier in the day to put my mind at rest, arrived promptly and instantly bonded with my daughter with some lovely toys, which put my mind at rest! She seemed to intuitively work out what my daughter would respond to! We had a lovely reassuring text message during the evening. When my daughter woke up the next morning, she was happily telling me bits and pieces about her evening with Ange! Will definitely ask Ange to babysit in the future!
