Do you enjoy working with children of all ages? Babysitting is a very important job in our community. This basic competency-based structured babysitting workshop, is designed to include a lot of interactive hands-on activities while you are learning how to respond to medical emergencies, preventing accidents, basic first aid, along with other safety issues. Learn how to deal with problem behavior and behavior management, feeding, diapering, bed time stories and challenges, along with age appropriate toys. Students are introduced to characteristics of various age groups, age-appropriate games, and playtime activities. Learn professional skills on how to be marketable to potential parents, and feel confident communicating with parents and guardians, along with following their guidelines or instructions. A Certificate of Completion will be provided at the end of the workshop. Students are asked to bring a sack lunch, snacks, and beverage/water. The teacher will provide all materials in class and to take home as well.
The maximum number of students for this class is 10. If more students are enrolled on the waiting list the instructor will add a second class a couple of weeks later.
