Babysitter Safety Training
When parents entrust their most treasured gifts to a babysitter, they will feel more secure and be more likely to hire someone who has taken Babysitter Safety Training. Babysitters who are trained in safety will have more confidence in dealing with the challenges that may face them while caring for children of all ages and stages. While the focus of this training is safety first, emphasis is also placed on responsibility, practical knowledge of childcare, and developing a positive attitude when caring for children. Please bring a stuffed animal or doll.
