Latest reviews of this nanny and childcare agency
Caring and Reliable
We have used Sitters for 4 or 5 years in order to find good baby sitters in our area. They've always managed to find us a really good baby sitter, even at short notice, and we particularly value their system of allowing us to indicate our preferred "sitters" so that we usually get the babysitters we know already.
Wonderful service for parents
I have used Sitters regularly since my daughter was 6 months old and have always been impressed with their service. I have used them for evening babysitters and during the day whilst at work when my usual nursery is closed for the holidays. They are always quick to find a sitter, even at short notice (we even got a confirmation for new year's eve when booking the night before!).
We have always been impressed with the quality of service and I love you receive feedback from previous parents before confirming.
I recommend them to all of our friends who also use the service.
A wonderful resource that helped get our social...
We started using Sitters.co.uk when our eldest was around nine months old. We didn't know a sitter personally and needed to find one to get our social lives back on track. We have had at least a dozen different sitters from the service over the last seven years and have liked them all. The service is reliable, reasonably priced, friendly - I don't have any reservations in recommending them at all. I also think its brilliant that you can get a sitter at a hotel when you're away!
Great service - reliable and easy to use
Having spent (what felt like) hours searching for a babysitter among my local network, I thought I would try Sitters. Am so glad I did, and it has now become my default babysitting service. Really easy to use, reliable and professional sitters who are all experienced with children. There is a membership fee but the recommended babysitting rates are very reasonable and you are not expected to cover travel costs, so it works out value of money if you use once a month or so.
Better quality care than I could find on my own
In the past, we always used sitters that we knew somehow. They were often working for other people and came recommended. But, there were always little issues like availability, last minute cancellations because the other family needed them, sketchy qualifications, transport, costs, etc. Not to mention, it is tricky in these situations if you don't want to hire that person anymore.
A friend recommended Sitters.co.uk and I will never look back. Why bother? Sitters makes it easy to set your preferences. To get started, we booked a few nights with different sitters each time and did some trials (basically, we stayed home and did some projects while the sitter stayed with our child for an hour--so we were around observing a bit and just making sure that the person was good-- once comfortable we left for a quick dinner-- we would then get feedback from the sitter and our child privately the next day). Now, we have a roster of preferred sitters who can be available at a variety of times. Sometimes I even phone our top 2 choices in advance to see if they will be available for a given day and if so, I then set it up via Sitters with that person as my first choice. It works every time and the sitters appreciate having a "preferred clientele" list. Plus, I should add that the prices that Sitters sets are very competitive and we love not having to worry about transport for the sitter. They really make it easy. Love, love, love.
