Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 14th from 9am-1pm for our Babysitters Training Course. This program is offered to young people ages 11+ and will be instructed by Debbie LaFlamme at $35pp. Debbie is a licensed Massachusetts day care provider with over 25 years of experience, she has been teaching this course for cities and towns for the past five years. Parents are looking for responsible, loyal and trustworthy teens to watch their children. A babysitter’s class can better prepare young adults to care for a baby or young child of family and friends.
The course will teach the basics to help the babysitter:
* Interview with parents.
* Learn infant and toddler care- diapering and feeding techniques, creative reading, activities for young children, and appropriate snacks.
* Handle bedtime issues.
* Choose safe and age- appropriate toys and games.
* Perform basic First-Aid – choking, cuts, puncture wounds, bruises, eye injuries, nosebleeds, tooth injuries, burns, seizures, poisoning, bites (insects, ticks, animal…)
* Learn tips for having a safe babysitting experience – including setting up a “code” with your parents in case of Emergency.
Parental Note: please pack snacks, drinks or a light lunch for this program.
