Virtual babysitting class 

 

We are very excited to start offering the Babysitting course in a Virtual format!  The class will run in multiple sessions so please be sure your child is able to attend ALL sessions before registering.  There will also be a pre class assignments and a small amount of at home work in between sessions (dependent on which session is chosen).

You will also be expected to pick up your 'At-Home Learning Kit' from our Downtown location during office hours prior to the class.  If anyone is unable to pick up from Belleville please ask about Kingston or Trenton pick up options. 

 

The Babysitting course, refreshed and revised, now has a greater emphasis on First Aid skills. The Canadian Red Cross Babysitting course covers everything from managing difficult behaviours to essential content on leadership and professional conduct as a babysitter. Babysitting promises to deepen and enhance the responsibility that older youth feel when caring for younger children. This updated curriculum, complete with new science, also provides improved learning when it comes to giving the appropriate care in the event of an emergency.
