It is a good list, and I second Advah.. most of the people I babysat for didn't give me ANYTHING. Even with all of my experience, i was left pretty stranded without contact information, schedules, likes, dislikes, and information needed about their kids. I even had one lady who didn't tell me her kid was asthmatic... I found out when he went into an attack in the backyard and had to scour the house to find his inhaler, which was on the dining room table lumped with schoolwork and misc items, and then figure out how to use it/get him to use it while he was panicking becuase it wasnt immediatly on his person or offered to him. Not something a 7 year old should deal with because his mom couldn't be bothered to prep me before leaving.

Good list! I babysat a few times for a colleague of my mum's, and that info was SO helpful in looking after her two daughters. I mean, I still ended up calling my mum (it was my first time babysitting) at some point, but all that stuff saved me from seriously panicking. Knowing what would calm down the youngest when she woke up at 2am crying because their dog barked, to what book the oldest liked reading before going to bed.. Plus, I'm sure it makes the parents more relaxed, which probably helps them enjoy their night out!
