  • Have you completed any babysitter training, first aid, or childcare qualification courses?
  • What do you do in your spare time? Do you have any hobbies or other jobs?
  • How do your parents feel about your babysitting jobs?
  • What do you like best about babysitting and being with children? What do you like least?
  • What is the most challenging situation you have encountered whilst babysitting children? How did you handle it?
