Babysitters have the responsibility of caring for children and making important decisions while they are in charge to keep not only the child safe, but themselves as well! Parents entrust their child with the babysitter, therefore it is critical he or she knows the basics of childcare. In this two-part virtual Introduction to Babysitting Course, participants in grades 5-12 will learn interviewing tips, communication skills, ages and stages of young babies and toddlers, safety and first aid tips, and feeding and caring for children, including diaper changing. In addition, with heightened precautions due to COVID-19, babysitters will learn steps they can take to decrease the spread of the virus as suggested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The instructor has taught Kindergarten and 2nd grade and is currently a 1st grade teacher. She holds three teacher certifications including Early Childhood, General Education, and Special Education and a Master’s Degree in Literacy. A certificate of participation will be emailed to you upon completion of the course (must attend both sessions)!
