Become a certified babysitter and learn first aid, rescue breathing, and special techniques to care for kids!
The American Red Cross Babysitter Course gives the participants the knowledge, confidence, and skills to care for infants through school-aged children.
The goal is to learn how to keep children safe and have fun while learning new skills.
The Babysitter's Handbook will be included and can be a valuable on-the-job resource. The handbook has first aid action-plans with simple directions for handling emergencies, as well as many other essential techniques for babysitting.
The course covers:
First aid and life-saving skills
Preventing illness and injuries
Basic child care
Age-appropriate behavior and games
Participants will be required to demonstrate several first aid skills during the certification class.
