We Train the Best Babysitters on the Block!!

 

Whether you are a professional child care provider or simply occasionally have children in your care, it’s important to know how to be prepared in case of an emergency. The American Red Cross offers several classes to train individuals to be prepared.

The Babysitter’s Training course gives youth ages 11 to 15 years old the knowledge and confidence to care for infants and school-age children. Combining video, activities, hands-on skills training and discussion for a complete learning experience, the course teaches youth how to:

  • Respond to emergencies and illnesses with first aid, rescue breathing and other appropriate care
  • Make decisions under pressure
  • Communicate with parents to learn household rules
  • Recognize safety and hygiene issues
  • Manage young children
  • Feed, diaper and care for infants
  • Start their babysitting business
