Dear Parents...
Thank you for your interest in our babysitter list.
To make it easier for you to find the right babysitter we have prepared this info letter for you to answer the most frequently asked questions.
Our babysitters are all equipped with a first aid course, an introduction to child care and a course in children’s psychology, culture and the importance of playing.
The babysitters may take care of your children in the afternoon or evening, pick up the children from daycare or after school club, or can accompany your child to spare time activities. Please check on the list which times are most convenient for your babysitter, since they often have other part time jobs or responsibilities.
Before you hire a babysitter it is a good advice that you invite her/him home to you, so you can get to know each other before s/he takes care of your children and clarify necessary things about payment, special treatments of your children, home transportation of the babysitter or others.
The payment for a babysitter varies and is something you should negotiate before you hire a babysitter. As advice, for babysitters under the age of 18 it is common to pay circa 50-60 DKK per hour, for babysitters over the age of 18 circa 60 -80 DKK per hour. That also depends on the number of children to take care of and the duty.
Make sure that the transportation of your babysitter is organized. Whether you take her/him home or pay for the bus or taxi. If you plan a longer night out, some babysitters agree to stay overnight and you arrange a fix price for the evening.
It is common to provide food and drinks for the children and the babysitter.
Please remember that you keep your part of the bargain and if there are changes in the agreement, contact your babysitter.
This babysitter list is only obtainable via www.babyib.dk. The initiators of this list are not responsible for the babysitters. This list helps you merely to make an easier contact between you and a babysitter. All agreements beyond that are between YOU and YOUR BABYSITTER ONLY.
With kind regards
The initiator group
