with certified staff from American Red Cross
Learn to care for siblings and neighborhood children. Discuss the expectations for safe childcare and a rewarding babysitting experience including basic childcare (diapering, dressing, hygiene and feeding), coping with safety hazards (fire, poisoning and strangers), age-appropriate holding and other responsibilities of both sitters and parents. If you are eleven years old or older, receive a formal Red Cross certification after attending both sessions. Bring a snack for a 15 minute break.
