Baby Sitter schools are looking for candidates who have the backgrounds, interests, and experiences that will enable them to become excellent Baby Sitters after training. Most use a screening process to make sure that enrollees do

not have a criminal record or their name on a child abuse registry. In addition, the schools are looking for candidates with an above-average driving record, a clean drug and alcohol record, and no medical disabilities that would prevent them in any way from caring for their charges. Physically, they should be able to stoop, kneel, crouch, and crawl. Good vision and hearing are necessary, as well as being able to lift fifty pounds. On the personality side, schools want prospective students to demonstrate creativity, time management skills, initiative, responsibility, self-confidence, and a love of teaching and children.
