The babysitter — you depend on him or her to take care of your most precious asset, so why not acknowledge their efforts in a simple yet much appreciated thank you note?
Thank-You Note for Your Child’s Babysitter
City, State Zip
Just a note to let you know how much we appreciate the care you’re providing to Amanda and Jimmy. When my husband drops by to pick them up each day after work, the kids jump in the car so full of enthusiasm and so excited to tell him about the day’s activities.
Many babysitters might see their role as simply to meet the physical needs of the kids and ensure the children’s safety while under their supervision. You, on the other hand, have shown so many kindnesses and provided the kids with attention, understanding and FUN, which all encourage the kids’ mental growth and emotional development: the “art” projects, the games, the snacks, the story times — all these extra activities require supplies and extra time for preparation and clean-up, not to mention patience. I know you know the kids appreciate you, and I want you to know that I appreciate you, too.
Thanks so much for all your extra efforts with our children; when they’re happy, we’re happy.
