The Safety First Babysitting Class is for youth ages 11-16 who already babysit, will start sometime in the future, or who simply want to learn how to safely stay home alone or with younger siblings. Cost is $50/participant and available courses can be found on our Calendar. We can also be hired to conduct courses for groups of 6 or more.
Participants will learn how to:
Supervise children and infants
Perform basic child care-skills such as diapering and feeding
Handle bedtime and discipline issues
Identify child safety hazards and prevent injuries
Care for common injuries and emergencies such as choking, burns, cuts and bee stings
Communicate effectively with parents
Find and interview for babysitting jobs
Develop leadership skills
The babysitting class is a 5 hour course and upon successful completion, students will receive official certification cards from the American Safety and Health Institute. * To find our next available class date, check our Calendar.
