Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

To say my son and Jo got along well would be an understatement. He was not ready to be left without mummy, but as soon as they discovered they both enjoyed tickles and books and songs, they were fast friends. My 2 year old loves to talk and ride around on his little motorbike and Jo kept right up with him. I could hear giggles and squeals of laughter when I was in the next room. We highly recommend Jo and would absolutely love to have her sit for us again. He is still talking about her the next day!

Jo is absolutely brilliant. She arrived fully prepared with games and loads of enthusiasm to entertain my two primary aged kids, was really responsive to their likes and dislikes and what they enjoyed doing, and was very caring towards them. She comforted them when they were upset and missing me, and kept me fully informed about how they had been. She's really fun, proactive, very polite and reliable, and is just brilliant!

I have booked Michelle several times now and always found her to be professional and friendly. She is always punctual and a good communicator and gets on very well with my daughter, Amira, aged 8. Amira looks forward to seeing her every time and enjoys playing with Michelle before bedtime. I have every confidence in booking Michelle and would thoroughly recommend her as a sitter.
