Because caring for children, is more than just child’s play.

For many young adolescents, babysitting is their first job. Our Canadian Red Cross Babysitting course can help them become real “pros”!

The program includes:

  • Important child care skills
  • Safety tips for children of all ages
  • How to cope with common problems, like tantrums and crying
  • What to do if anything makes the babysitter uncomfortable
  • Some great games and other ideas for having fun with the kids while babysitting
  • How to make the children’s environment safe and enjoyable
  • What are the respective rights and responsibilities of the babysitter and the family hiring one

Emergencies sometimes do happen, even to the best babysitters. The Babysitter’s course teaches how to handle emergencies with confidence by providing the basic First Aid skills for such common problems such as:

  • Choking
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Bleeding & Poisoning
  • Fire emergency & burn care
  • And much more
