To provide boys and girls who are planning to babysit with the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and responsibly give care for children and infants. This training will help participants to develop leadership skills; learn how to develop a babysitting business, keep themselves and others safe and help children behave; and learn about basic child care and basic first aid.

Parents - when bringing your child to the class please walk them to the classroom and make certain that the instructor has a good emergency contact number for you.

A one-half hour lunch break is planned into the day. Please remember to send a lunch with your child. Class ends promptly at the designated time, please arrive fifteen minutes early to retrieve your child from the classroom.

This class is full as of 5/10/19. If you are still interested we will be running another one in the Fall. You can also put your child on the waiting list. If anyone drops out prior to the start date, we will call families in the order they are received. No walk-ins allowed.
