Latest reviews of this nanny and childcare agency
Good administration and selection of experienced...
We have used sitters.co.uk during the past year, and found the system easy to use. The profiles of the sitters enable you to assess their experience (usually very extensive), and the ability to rank your favourite sitters is effective. The booking confirmation is usually fast, but on a couple of occasions I have been left wondering whether we were going to get someone. It would be good to get an update after 48 hours. There has only been one occasion when our request could not be fulfilled. We have generally found the sitters themselves to be pleasant, capable and confident. Our daughter is very happy to have sitters now, compared to two years ago, when it was a more anxious experience for her.
I signed up for Sitters recently and booked our first sitter yesterday. It's such an easy system, once you've set up your account, you can book a sitter in a matter of minutes. They send the same sitters you've used in the past depending on your feedback, and if for any reason she has to cancel, the benefit of an agency is they can send someone else at short notice, so it's really reliable. I'd never used a babysitter before, but reading the reviews of the sitter beforehand made me feel at ease and I didn't feel awkward letting a stranger into my home at all. The sitter we got was extremely nice and professional, had lots of experience and was very sweet with my daughter so it couldn't have gone better. It's a lot cheaper than any other babysitter options we've looked at, so it's great value for money too.
A great resource for booking babysitters/emergency childcare. I was initially very nervous about booking a babysitter, who I have never met before, on-line to look after my children but the first babysitter we had put my nerves at ease as she was so competent and kind. I have used Sitters many times since and have never had a problem with any of the babysitters.
Childminding made easy
Having no grandparents or aunts and uncles nearby we rely on childminders when we venture out. Sitters provides one point of contact and have done the work in vetting and selecting local people with the rights skills and experience. I worried about having a different person every time and it bring a negative experience for my child but because it local it's been the same two or three people we have had and we it turns out we have close links with each of them too! A stranger in your house with your child is daunting but I have every confidence in Sitters staff. Only once have they not managed to provide someone and it was very short notice. They try even down to 4 hrs before you go! I feel my child is safe. Prices are reasonable. I can use it anywhere in the UK, in hotels, or on a boat! I would recommend it to anyone.
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!
