What to Write in a Thank You Note to Babysitter

There are many people in our lives who deserve our thanks. These are the people whos work makes our lives easier. One person on this list to remember is the babysitter. 

A babysitter plays a very important role in our life. They are the person who is entrusted with the care of our most precious little ones while we are away from home. Their hard work and dedication to our children makes all the difference in our ability to relax, recharge, and enjoy our time out. 

Our babysitter can be a very important person in the lives of the kiddos as well. A good sitter can teach, inspire and befriend our children in ways that we cannot. So a nice note of appreciation will never go wrong.

How To Write A Thank You Note To A Babysitter

  • First and foremost, thank you for having such a positive impact on my children.  I’ll be honest, we weren’t sure about hiring you as our child’s babysitter because you are such a young age, but you are such a bright person, I’m so glad we went with you.  You have such admirable qualities, I know that you always have my child’s well being at heart. Thank you so much!
  • Our daughter has never  developed a bond this strong with any other babysitter we’ve hired.  This is a very rare thing, so I wanted to send a heartfelt thank you, we are deeply thankful to have you in our life!  
  • We hope that you’re having a wonderful day! I just want to say that since we’ve had you, our kid has started making new friends and become more active in school. Not only that, she started doing her homework on time… we couldn’t even get her to do that! Nothing can adequately express how grateful we are for your help around here.  You two have formed quite a strong bond, we hear stories about you two at bedtime, she really has so much fun with you 🙂

  • Thank you for introducing all these awesome games to our child. He is extremely fond of them. For someone so young, you are a very responsible person, and for that we are so appreciative.   
  • Your techniques work with our child like ours never did. He is more attentive now and stays more focused on things that he is doing. His focus has been quite a struggle, so your help with this has been awesome.   Many thanks for your flexibility and for taking care of our child so well, we couldn’t think of anyone more trustworthy. 
  • Thank you so much for taking care of our little ones, so we could enjoy a date day out.  You have such amazing love for all our kids, it allows me to be stress free when I leave them with you.  Thank you so much for that!
  • The effort you put into giving the best care for our baby is so much more than what we expected, and in the best way possible! The babysitters we had before you didn’t invest so much into all his little activities like you do. Because of you, he’s happier and healthier than ever. Thank you so much!

  • Your qualities as a baby sitter are second to none! I have never seen someone so attentive and good with other children.  Many thanks for being so caring and sensitive to our beloved son. You are a precious asset to have, we could not have found a better person for him!
  • With this heartfelt note, we would like to say that we are so glad that we found such a wonderful babysitter.  We know how much our child loves you, it’s so helpful for a parent knowing they have left their child with someone who genuinely cares about them!
  • Thank you so, so much for taking care of our child so well. You have been such a positive influence on our son, you have helped our child focus so much better.  You are an exceptional person, and we are super lucky to have you!    

The best baby-sitters, of course, are the baby’s grandparents. You feel completely comfortable entrusting your baby to them for long periods, which is why most grandparents flee to Florida.

  • Thank you for making our child become more responsible of himself and helping him focus on his schoolwork. He has made so much progress since he first met you.  We are introverts, so it’s been great for him to be around such an outgoing person.  I just wanted to let you know that we appreciate you. 
  • With you and you alone, we know that our son is in very good and capable hands.  I know that he is a mischievous monkey sometimes, but he behaves super well when he is with you.  We are grateful for that responsible nature of yours!
  • Thank you so much for taking such good care of the kids last night.  They can be quite a handful, but you managed to keep them entertained and safe all night long, I really appreciate it.  I have seen such a great amount of change in my son since he has been with you.

Babysitter Appreciation

My babysitter allows me to go to work while my kids are well looked after and safe!  It feels wrong to just say “thanks”!

Here are some inspiring words to include in thank you notes for your babysitter:
