Latest reviews of this nanny and childcare agency
We have been using the Sitters babysitting agency for about 6 months following a recommendation by a friend. The booking process has been very straightforward and Sitters have always been able to fill our bookings, most being in the evening but sometimes in the afternoon. The advice/information on the website can seem a little patronising, but it is comprehensive and does help parents have a very realistic idea of what you can expect from Sitters and what they expect from you. If you use the service regularly, say at least an average of once per month, the membership fee becomes a nominal addition to the cost. It has been amazing to be able to simply put in a request online or via my phone, rather than texting/calling round, and the reliability of Sitters babysitters has been faultless.
Amazing service - changed our lives!
We have two small children, and had always got friends and family to babysit - so felt we could only go out when it was something Really Special that justified asking for help, and often found that organising babysitting was more than the evening out was worth so, basically, we never went anywhere and said no to invitations. A friend told us about this and we were horrified - babysitters on the internet! - but it is BRILLIANT! The staff at Sitters are human and lovely and totally understand how weird it feels to plan to leave your kids with a stranger, and the process works really well so yes, you can establish a relationship with a regular babysitter. And using the service helps keep everything clear - what times you need, how much to pay - which makes it easy to sort things out with someone you've not met before without any awkwardness. Suddenly the idea of popping out for a few hours to have a meal out or see a film together is fun, rather than a cause of anxiety. Can't recommend these lovely people highly enough.
