Latest reviews of this nanny and childcare agency
This service has been a lifeline as we don't have any family close by and don't know the neighbours enough to leave our baby with them. We have used it numerous times for nights out and even for whole days and the carers have never let us down. Knowing that all the sitters are already in this industry helps me trust them and the knowledge that our little one is in great hands. Our baby has loved each and every one of the sitters who we've had and we have had many which I think is allowing our little one to become very independent! I can't recommend this company enough and compared to others like it, it is very affordable as well which is icing on the cake. So happy I have found Sitters, we will be lifelong members for as long as we are in the UK I'm sure!
Coming from the US, we were anxious about finding someone we could trust. Other expat moms recommended this service to me, and so far we have had a great experience. No need to have developed your own network of reliable sitters, which can take months by word of mouth. Plus, there's no hassle of calling the entire pool of people you know in order to find someone. This service really takes all the pain points out of the process, and we have always felt comfortable leaving our child in each sitters care.
Couldn't be more impressed
We have had a 99% success rate with Sitters. We have been SO impressed by the standard of carers sent to look after our small people (aged 3.5 and 1.5) that I wish my 'preferred list' could be longer! We are consistently impressed by the high calibre of personnel - the carers clearly go through rigorous testing before they are accepted by Sitters and this is keenly reflected in their competence. Almost all, with only one exception, have been utterly charming, warm, friendly, completely OVER qualified (!) and accommodating. The only exception was, I'm sure, entirely competent in caring for children, but did not have the same level of warmth, kindness and humour that others have exhibited. I could not recommend Sitters more highly.
we've used sitters many times since son was just few months old and they have provided excellent sitters for daycare and evening babysitting and at short notice. ! We have had no problems at all and have recommended to friends. All the sitters have been very competent ,used their initiative to help and if asked have sent text updates ( really lovely and helpful especially in early days when felt anxious leaving him) . Excellent service.
Absolute confidence in who'll be looking after...
We signed up to Sitters not sure how often we'd use them and a bit unsure of using babysitters we hadn't met. So far we have had a really good experience and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sitters to anyone else. It's been really good to get our own social life back again and good to know that the little ones are being well looked after while we enjoy our time together...
