There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.

In the example you were indeed prejudiced. You made an assumption based upon the visual without really giving the person a chance that show whether or not they fall within your stereotype. By acting upon that prejudice, i.e. not hiring them to babysit, you discriminated.
