Babysitting with First Aid and CPR • Ages 10+
Available in French & English
**BEFORE YOU REGISTER, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD IS THE AGE REQUIRED THE DAY OF THE COURSE**
The Babysitting Course with Infant and Child CPR is designed to educate our youths to make good decisions and help build their confidence in their skills and ability to be a successful Babysitter while learning skills such as: A non breathing child, choking- conscious and unconscious, anaphylactic, seizures, cuts, scrapes, falls, nose bleeds, how to use an Epi-pen…and more.
Sibling Care: This course also covers the important step when a child starts to babysit or help look after a younger sibling, to help out mom and dad. We teach the kids how to get along with their sibling, how to keep them safe, and how to use these new skills. Having an older child babysit a younger sibling saves on daycare costs for parents, teaches the kids about responsibility and working together.
In the Babysitting Course, students will learn these skills in a hands-on learning environment that best promotes and enhances their own individual learning styles.
Since we are doing this course through Zoom Meeting, you will need a device such as a smart phone, iPad/tablet or desktop/laptop that supports Zoom Meeting Technology (preferably with audio/video capability and high-speed internet). There is no fee to use the Zoom Meeting service. You will simply need to download the Zoom app ahead of time.
We ask that the students taking the course be in a room where they are not distracted from pets, other siblings or other family members. Once you have helped your child get set up on Zoom, we ask that you are not in the room with them as we teach our courses in an interactive manner and we find that they don’t participate with others in the room.
We can assure you that this is an easy process and we will be keeping the course interactive; even virtually.
- Students will require some sort of a doll or teddy bear for the CPR portion of the course.
- Students will receive a Babysitting Certification Card and Babysitting Work booklet (which will be emailed after the course).
- The course will be done in 2 parts over – either two mornings or two afternoons. You can pick which time frame works best for you.
The course is $ 60.00 + HST per participant.
