Babysitting Class

When parents/guardians hire a babysitter they are trusting them with their child's life. A babysitter's main responsibility is to care for a child's needs and keep the child safe. Taking this class will help prepare for these challenges. This class will teach future babysitters:

  • How to get started
  • Leadership and decision-making
  • What to do in an emergency
  • Fire and personal safety
  • Basic first aid (including choking response)
  • Basic baby care (diapering, swaddling, feeding)

The fee for this class is $45 and is open to children 11 years of age and older. Class size is limited so early registration is recommended. Look for the Babysitting Class in the Upcoming Events section. If you have any questions, please call (608) 775-6870.

Cancellation Policy: No refunds. A credit will be given for the next class.
