Definitely call all references. Some people charge way less to be competitive. I would probably offer her 15-20/day if you decide to hire her. That was it's still less than the "going" rate, but a more fair rate for her.
My requirements are that someone be CPR/First Aid certified, be able to transport my child in case of emergency (so I wouldn't hire someone under 16) and someone my kids like right from the start.
