“I just wanted to thank you for your service. We’ve tried other babysitting agencies before but since trying ‘Sitting Pretty’ I wouldn’t go anywhere else. My son had become so anxious about having a babysitter that we had stopped going out. Now he looks forward to us going out so that he can see Hannah! Thanks for listening to my concerns and finding the perfect person for us. It has made all the difference in the world.”
“Slightly out of the blue, but my husband and I were talking about your company yesterday and saying how fabulous we think it is. Every sitter you have ever sent us has been friendly, completely competent and great with our children. I have no qualms about leaving them when we have one of your sitters and every confidence that they will be beautifully looked after.”
“I would like to thank you for your reliable and great service. It really has put us at ease when going out. The girls were lovely and boys were always happy. Communication with the babysitters were fantastic always very informative. What else can you wish for? Would by all means recommend you to other parents.”
“I just wanted to write and thank you again for organising for the lovely Adriana to come and baby sit on Saturday night. I can honestly say I’ve never felt so comfortable before leaving the boys with someone they didn’t know. We were also grateful for the ability to stay out late as this is a real treat! And the fact that Adriana dealt so well with …… waking was just amazing. Thank you both for such a great service”
“You have such wonderful girls that work for you and your service has been such a god-send to us as parents who do not have any family in the UK. Thank you!!”
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping us out last night. Melissa was wonderful and our son adored her on sight.You always have such brilliant people – I wish you arranged nannies too! Thanks again."
“The entire service was seamless from start to finish: booking a babysitter was incredibly quick and easy, the reminder text from the agency and courtesy call from my babysitter extremely reassuring. Alex arrived on time with a big smile, she bonded immediately with my children and was in every way friendly, helpful and responsible, I felt completely at ease with leaving my children in her care for the night. Getting the ironing done was a lovely bonus! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Sitting Pretty Babysitters”
Elouise was brilliant, C….. was so excited she was an actress. Also she asked, is there anything you would like me to do, washing up, ironing? Nearly died with excitement. Next time we might say yes to that question. Kids liked her, she was polite, punctual, would use her again.
“Sitting pretty are a good company to work for because as a babysitter I feel “Valued” "
“SPB really works around your lifestyle and it’s so handy to know there is that there if you need it. I love that I can work around my teaching job. It’s an easy system with emails sent with all the details that you need. A chat with the mum beforehand means you can introduce yourself too”
“I have been babysitting through Sitting Pretty Babysitters for few years now. I have found Sara and Angie extremely professional, friendly and really lovely to deal with. There is absolutely no pressure (as oppose to some other agencies) how much work you take on and you are treated with respect and kindness. I would recommend registering with this agency if you are also looking for some ad-hoc work”
“I have been working for SPB for about a year now and must say that its the best Babysitter agency I have ever worked for. I was registered with two others, but cancelled them both as their systems were lengthy and tiresome and jobs on offer scarce. With Angie and Sara it’s super simple. There is always plenty of opportunities for work to go around for everyone. SPB is a very busy agency and loved by many. You go to work, always a very nice family will welcome you and that’s that. You get paid right there and then by the parents and you don’t need to call the agency again or fill in any paperwork. Angie and Sara are both super professional, always only a phone call away if you have any questions or queries, I would thoroughly recommend working for SPB and I have passed their info onto my friends, fellow nannies and families alike. We look forward to welcoming you aboard!”
“I love working for SPB because it’s so flexible. I can work around my studies and do as much or as little as I want depending on what I’ve got on. All the families I have worked for have been kind and welcomed me into their homes. There is a real sense of trust between you which has been built by Sara before you even arrive, and means that you can just get on with things once you get there. It’s great to build up relationships with regular bookings, but I also love to get out and meet new families who are really excited for you to meet their children and really appreciate you helping them out”
