Reviews about local Sitters childcarers...

Where do I start!? Bo is just such an amazing professional childminder and engaging with both our 4.5 year old (and us adults alike!) Our child couldn't wait to see us off - we were seen to the door for the first time ever! Also, Bo is an expert on children and is able to read children's behaviour and interpret their needs and care for them intuitively. Our child asked for her to come back the next day! We would all welcome you back anytime. Look forward to it. Thank you so much.

I would highly recommend Chioma, she has looked after my 18 month old son a number of times. She is always on time and full of happy positive energy, My son warmed to her immediatly. Chioma regularly looks after him and I can hear them playing and having fun together. Chioma is very caring and loving, going out of her way to make sure that my little one is happy which is why I always book her! My son soon forgets that Mummy has gone upstairs to work as he is having so much fun!

Barbora called way ahead to confirm arrival. She was a very warm and lovely person and our 22 month old took to her immediately (rarity!) and was very playful with her. Barbora was not intrusive or confused about what to do and pitched herself perfectly, especially as it was bedtime and our baby was starting to get a bit too excited! Barbora truly is a natural with kids. Mary Poppins watch out! Thank you so much Barbora. We hope to have you again and can't recommend you enough!
