Babysitting Course

Classroom

As we continue to follow Public Health requirements the Babysitting courses are running as scheduled. Maximum class sizes (to meet social distancing directives) will be 12 participants per class. Masks will be required.

 

Our certified Red Cross instructors demonstrate, share slides, and facilitate learning activities among participants. Each participant will finish this course with the confidence and skills needed to be an outstanding babysitter.​

Description

All babysitters should be prepared in order to keep themselves, and the children they watch, safe. Our Babysitting course allows youth ages 11-15 to learn from certified Red Cross instructors. 

Even more, our course is more comprehensive than other babysitting courses, ensuring that you have a well-rounded knowledge on what to do in case of an emergency. 

Our course has been updated with new science and new ways of learning so that everything you learn is relevant to today’s world. 

Our instructors will teach you how to manage difficult behaviour, will provide important content on how to be a leader and a professional, and will give you an in-depth run down on necessary First Aid skills to make sure you are prepared for anything and everything. 

The course is taught in a 7-hour classroom session. 

After successfully completing the course, students will receive a Canadian Red Cross Babysitting Certificate that will make their resumé stand out from the competition and can give them the confidence they need for babysitting.

Students will also receive the Babysitting Course Manual PDF so that they can access the information at any time!

First aid content covered:

  • The three C’s to an emergency - Check, Call, Care. Emergency situations can be stressful and it’s hard to think straight. These three steps provide a solid structure for how you should act in an emergency situation, can help you minimize harm, and possibly save a life! 

  • Glove removal - In an emergency situation, it is important to wear gloves to protect you and the victim. Even more so, it is crucial for caretakers and children to know how to properly remove gloves in order to avoid contamination and the spread of germs.
