Does your family have a safety plan? How do you communicate that to your babysitter, nanny or au pair? This re-useable, just-in-case checklist for babysitters and nannies will help your family keep track of emergency contacts, procedures and health concerns when your children are under the watchful eye of your favorite caregivers.

Keep a copy on your refrigerator and make sure every caregiver has one of their own, too. If there's an emergency while you're away, this handy checklist will tell your sitters what to do and who to call.

Stay safe!

This is so amazing and very professional. It shows that we as caregivers are not only care about children's growth and development but also we do care about children's health. It is very important for a nanny/babysitter to know a child completely; every detail is counts and always should be like this.
Thank you Care.Com for a very useful list.
