The Babysitters Training Course is one-day class that prepares youth ages 11-15 to become responsible babysitters. Participants will learn how to care for children ages 0-10, activities to do with young children, create a babysitting business plan, and be prepared to handle emergency situations. Students will leave with the knowledge of how young children act and play. This course provided hands on caregiving from feeding, changing, playing, and preparing for bedtime. This class is a great opportunity for older siblings who may be caring for younger siblings and those looking to pursue babysitting or be mother's helpers.
