ARC Babysitter's Training

Be a safe and successful babysitter

American Red Cross Babysitter's training is designed for ages 11-15 years old to learn the skills of becoming a better babysitter.  Topics include how to provide and care for infants, toddlers, and school age children, how to stay safe, what to do in an emergency situation such as illness, injuries, and household accidents, how to choose age-appropriate activities, and how to handle behavior issues.  This course will be taught through a variety of discussions, games, and interactive role playing of possible scenarios/situations while caring for children.  Participants will receive a certificate of completion upon completion of the class.
