Basic contact details:

Before the parents leave the door, you should ask for their cell phone number and home address. This information is needed in an emergency to call an ambulance or notify parents of an accident or injury. 

If a situation arises, it is also useful to have the telephone number of the pediatrician and poison controller. Contact information should also be provided so that others can call if parents cannot be reached in an emergency.

Solve health problems and emergencies:

Primary and emergency numbers should be located somewhere in the house so that they are easily accessible; in the refrigerator or on a speed dial phone at home may be most convenient. Babysitters should also have up-to-date knowledge of DACs and first aid. If the first aid kit is not at home, bring it yourself to work.

Specific information for each child:

Before setting up with a babysitter, do as much research as possible about the children you will be raising. Information about allergies, medications your child should take, and special dietary needs will help ensure that the children you care for are safe.
