Don't just take our word for it. Read a few of our Facebook reviews from our beloved client families.

"My husband and I used this childcare service for the first time 2 nights ago and we were completely blown away by the amazing service and professionalism from all involved! I was kept in contact throughout the process of finding a sitter for my needed times, and then the sitter kept me updated as well! (Arrival time, how my child was doing) we decided to book again today and again, GREAT service. 10/10 recommend tidewater tots for childcare!"

"Rebecca is absolutely amazing with my daughter. I don’t feel like I could leave her in better hands. My tiny human is always just as happy when I come home as when I leave her. Rebecca has always been and will always be my go to sitter due to her unparalleled attention to detail when it comes to every aspect of my child’s care. I have recommended them before and I will recommend them every time. Thank you Tidewater Tots for providing me with peace of mind any time I have to leave my daughter."

"We were able to go on a long awaited date night because of TOTS!! We are a military family & with little family around; which makes it hard to get out on date nights. Catie came to our rescue & she was above & beyond an excellent childcare provider! She made sure to jump immediately in to interact with our son & she kept him busy the whole time we were gone! She did excellent! My son loved having her as a sitter too!! We would recommend her to anyone ! thank you for the help & making a date night for us. We loved being able to make date night a priority!"

"Tidewater Tots made the entire process so easy for us! From start to finish, they take care of every aspect which takes away so much anxiety from the process of finding childcare. We are still relatively new to the area with few connections so this service is such a blessing. Our sitter was wonderful about communicating before and during care which gave us such peace of mind. We will definitely be using again and are excited to have found this service!"

Deborah R.

"Every single sitter has been phenomenal with our kids! It’s so reassuring to know an experienced sitter is looking after them. Their communication is wonderful, and I always get updates and immediate responses from the team. Plus my daughter has a blast and asks when they can come play again. Always a good sign when the four year old is asking for her friends to come back!"

Laura M.

"My wife and I have been going through Tidewater Tots for almost 3 years now and they have been amazing! Being Active Duty and her a night Nurse our schedules can be very unpredictable and inconsistent. Tidewater Tots has always pulled through for us everywhere from scheduling multiple early morning school drop offs to weekend overnights. Our son absolutely loves his sitters and even though he's quiet when they first get to the door, as soon as mom or dad leave he opens up and has the time of his life with them. I have and will continue to recommend their sitters and business to any military family I meet. Thank you for everything!"

Today was our first time with a sitter from Tidewater Tots, and it will certainly not be our last! Rebecca was so kind, energetic, and attentive with our kids, and our incredibly clingy and reserved 22mo opened up to her immediately! She sent photos and updates on how our kids were doing which really put us at ease. Communication was outstanding - they responded quickly to my request for a sitter, and we loved getting a bio and a photo of Rebecca at booking. She was incredibly respectful of our kiddos and our family's routines, and jumped right in like she's been with us forever. Rebecca was such a gift to us when we needed help, and can't wait to have her back again soon!

"Where do I begin? I've been using Tidewater Tots from the very beginning and I can't say enough good things about them!

Every sitter that we have ever had has been AMAZING with my kids. Even when my littlest might not have been warm to them right away when she was younger, they always took their time to let her get adjusted.

I have had wonderful communication while my kids are in their care, always getting a text throughout the evening on how they were doing and letting me know once everyone was asleep!

I am thankful to have this service to count on!!"

"Tidewater Tots has been a lifesaver for me. My husband is gone a lot for work and we had a baby over the summer. We're not from the area and don't have family nearby, so knowing their sitters are thoroughly vetted gives me a peace of mind when I need a sitter for our daughter. I've had great experiences with the sitters I've had so far (3 different ones to be exact). I'd definitely recommend their services!"

Lexi K.

"I would like to say Thank you Tidewater Tots for providing such an amazing service! We had Dulsey last weekend for a long awaited Date night. She was amazing!! She took great care of my 2 month old and 2 year old toddler. She went above and beyond!! We will definitely be using TTC again! Thank you so much!! DULSEY YOU ROCK!!! MY KIDS LOVE YOU."

Stefhanie R.

"Rebecca is one of the most caring individuals I know. She has a way with kids that is unparalleled in any other sitter and she shares that with her team members. I know my kids are safe leaving them in her care and love that I can call on such short notice to get coverage! Highly recommend Tidewater Tots!"

Devon H.

"Tidewater Tots was so helpful in finding a nanny who would be a great fit for our childcare needs. I appreciated their facilitation of the vetting, matching, and arranging the interview/"trial" process. Juanita is a rockstar caregiver who competently and compassionately cared for our newborn when I went back to work at 6 weeks postpartum. She was also wonderful at flexing to meet our last-minute needs (date night! traffic is terrible!) and taking care of our toddler and infant if our toddler's preschool was closed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Juanita or Tidewater Tots to anyone seeking trustworthy, reliable childcare!"

Emily H.

"Tidewater Tots is a godsend. Me and my husband are here and don’t know many people so it’s hard to get away from our kids, and they have been so on the ball about finding care for our babies, and even on short notice! I recommend them to all the people I hear looking for care here, and I will keep doing it!"

Kristen A.

I came to utilize Tidewater Tots during a week where our daycare unexpectedly closed. This was the first time we had sitters for our daughter (6 months) who were not friends or family. The communication and responsiveness was awesome and we loved working with Kira, Abi and Keema. Our daughter had a fabulous time and we were at ease! Thank you so much.
