Virtual Babysitting Course

Available Now! 

The COVID-19 outbreak is an especially important time to prevent and prepare for medical emergencies at home. Children are spending more time at home than ever! 

We are all looking for ways to navigate isolation and find a new norm. As parents, we are challenged with trying to find a healthy balance for our children and ourselves. 


We would like to take some weight off your shoulders and help your kids learn new skills and responsibilities. We do all the teaching!


The Little Lungs Red Cross Certified Babysitting course is designed so that children can learn with us without adding more to their parents' already busy task list.


Our expert Red Cross Youth Leaders will teach your children how to manage new responsibilities, become more independent, administer First Aid, care for children of all ages, and create safe environments for everyone. 




  • Great use of your children's time while social distancing
