Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Susan was fantastic, calm and so experienced. The children took to her at once. She even came with her own brilliant childrens books and toys. We were staying in a rental house for the weekend so didnt have alot of toys/book resources. She was caring, confident and very safety aware. My twins loved her. She became part of the extended family. I cant recommend her enough. She was polite and so gentle with us all. She made us feel nothing was too much. I hope she enjoyed it as much as we did having her with our children for over 5 hours of full on child care. One brilliant lady.

We had never had anyone babysit for us that we did not know before booking Susan to look after our two sons (both under 5). We had experience of Sitters through friends who were incredibly positive about their experiences. Susan bonded immediately with our two sons and put us and them at ease. She is very friendly, polite and relaxed in her manner and at the same time professional. There is no question that we will book her again. Our experience absolutely matched our hopes and expectations. Thank you Susan and Sitters.

Georgina worked for us for the first time last night; she has made a very positive impression. She was punctual, listened clearly to instructions, had her own set of questions & immediately engaged with our son. He did not require a lot of play time before being put to bed, but Georgina followed our request to have some play time and get him to bed early. She has a pleasant manner in dealing with both of us and our little boy. We would be happy to have her back. Thank you for introducing her to us. Anthea Morland.
