Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Stacy D was great. I had a message prior to the day as confirmation and she arrived on time on the evening itself. My 3 boys took to her immediately and Stacy immediately got them on side, unfortunately my youngest (5) was coming down with a cough and a slight raised temperature after a long week at school but Stacy provided reassurance that all would be ok and she was great, even sitting with him in his room whilst he resettled later in the evening. Would have no hesitation recommending Stacy D so long as you choose an evening when we aren't using her first!

Matthew was great with our 8 month old who unfortunately didn't fancy going to bed before we went out! Matthew was confident and relaxed with him, and asked how we would like him to handle bedtime. With his experience as a baby room nursery nurse and his own young children I felt absolutely confident leaving him still awake with Matthew when we left. On our return I wasn't surprised to hear that when sleepy Matthew had put him down and soothed him to sleep. Thank you and I'm sure we will see you again!

Ayisat was great with our 1 yr old son, who clocked that we were about to go out! We weren't ready yet, so she distracted him and played with him, really calming him down before we left. She asked what sort of routine and time we'd like for him to go to bed, and let us know by text when he was asleep- really reassuring. She kindly stayed a bit later, and the next day even texted to ask how our son was. We'd 100% recommend her- clearly very experienced and a lovely person. Thank you and see you soon!
