This entry level course is intended to teach age appropriate skills necessary to care for children of all ages using team babysitting, mother's helper and individual babysitting concepts. This course focuses on safety with an emphasis on prevention. Other topics include handwashing, diapering, bottle feeding, personal safety, interview skills and COVID-19 related topics. Basic first aid, including adult and child CPR (requires passing written and skills testing to receive the 2 year certification), will be covered. Each participant will receive a booklet, handouts and Babysitter Safety Certificate. Please note: Participants must wear a face mask and bring a pen, bag lunch, snack and water bottle. Due to the prevalence of allergies, this is a nut-free program. Participants will be provided gloves to use during the program. The classroom will be arranged to allow for proper social distancing during the program. Due to COVID-19, several new policies are required of all participants and their families. Please see the Babysitter Safety COVID-19 waiver for details. Limit: 10.
