When parents choose to leave their children with a babysitter, they are looking for someone who is mature and fully prepared to handle emergency situations. Children want their babysitter to be lots of fun and creative.
This interactive, hands-on, three-hour class will help prepare your son or daughter to be the best babysitter on the block! This class, for tweens and teens age 11-17, covers:
- Infant and child care.
- Child development.
- Basic first aid.
- Choking rescue for infants and children.
- Injury prevention.
- How to handle emergencies.
- Healthy hints for meals and snacks.
- Safe marketing.
Participants must register in advance and complete a short homework assignment prior to attending. Participants will receive a certificate of completion upon completing the course.
Snacks will be provided.
This program was made possible through a generous grant from the Library Initiative for Teens & Tweens.
