Babysitting Class

Sat., Nov. 7, 9:30 a.m - 1 p.m.
The YMCA babysitting course teaches participants the necessary skills to provide safe, responsible child care in the absence of parents or guardians. This training helps youth develop personal professionalism as well as skills in basic care, ages and stages, safe play, and basic first aid. Completion of this course will also result in a babysitting certification that can serve as a resume-booster for participants. Participants should pack a snack and a drink. 


Children ages 11-15
