Write down the emergency numbers and home address of your baby sitting. Always include the address of the house where you are babysitting. Because this can be easily forgotten but important to know if you are calling for emergencies (or pizza delivery).
Record the parents' number, to contact them in case of unexpected events or problems with the children.
