Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

This was the first time we'd left our 8 month old twins and gone for an evening out plus they'd been a bit under the weather and not settling/sleeping very well so I was a bit apprehensive about doing so when the night arrived. However, when Maxine arrived she put me at ease right from the outset and I knew they'd be fine with her and she was right. They both woke during the evening but she gave them attention and cuddles which they were more than happy to receive. I knew that they'd been well cared for and I wouldn't hesitate to use Maxine again or recommend her to friends.

Trish was brilliant. My 2 year old is going through some separation anxiety issues at the moment and got upset when I was leaving. Trish has a very calm demeanour, which is exactly what my two year old needs. She settled him by reading some of the books she brought with her and managed to get him to bed where he slept through the night (something my regular babysitter has found difficult to do at times) I would be more than happy to have her again as I'm confident that she is able to look after my children in a caring and understanding way.

Julie came to look after my 3 year old daughter and she was fantastic. She brought bags of toy and games and immediately sat down to do a puzzle with my daughter. She was very professional and polite and messaged a few times to day that everything was going ok. I returned to find them snuggled up having reading time and Julie had my daughter so engrossed in the story she didn't even notice I had returned. I would highly recommend Julie and would love for her to sit for my daughter (who said she had had a lovely day) again. Thanks.
