Using the Child Care Checklist from Microsoft
The child care checklist comes in the form of a Microsoft Excel template. The first step in using the template is to add your child’s name. Alongside the child care checklist vertically is a 14-hour window beginning with 8:00 a.m. and ending with 10:00 p.m. If you will be away from your child at different hours, feel free to alter and customize the child care checklist to best meet your needs.
Across the top of the child care checklist is a set of events and occurrences that will transpire throughout the day. Some of the events include:
- Books Read
- Brushed Teeth
- Videos Watched
- Discipline Problem
As the day progresses, the babysitter will mark what happened in the box that corresponds with the time of day. For example, if your child had a discipline problem at 8:00 p.m., the sitter would mark and X in the 8:00 p.m. box in the discipline problem row. It’s just that easy!
There’s three additional rows on the child care checklist marked “Other.” These can be changed to things such as played outside, spent time coloring or anything else you can think of that you would expect your child to do. The template is completely customizable. It could be printed off for the sitter or could be saved on the computer and the sitter can input information that way.
