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 £8.75.

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...

Barbara was very pleasant, we received a phone call introducing herself and she arrived early which allowed the children to get to know her before we left. She was polite with the children and in the morning my 3 year old got up and started to look at where she had been asking where the lady was gone. When we said she had gone he was very disappointed so she obviously made an impression on him. Will certainly like Barbara to look after my children again and recommend her.

Well what can I say!!! Alex was fab. Ellie-Mae had a lovely time with her. She can sometimes test people who look after her but Alex seemed to have a great influence over her. Would defo recommend Alex to our friends. Will defo be requesting her again x.

This was our first experience of Sitters and Barbara was wonderful. The whole system worked perfectly and we will definitely be using Sitters and Barbara again. It is such a relief to know that our children are in such safe hands. Thank you.
