Babysitters training offered by Red Cross
The Rock River Chapter of the American Red Cross will hold a babysitting clinic for students ages 11-15 June 7 and 8. The course will teach students the responsibilities and qualities of being a good babysitter. Participants will learn such basics as how to have fun with kids while maintaining control, feeding, dressing, and diaper changing, safety with age-appropriate toys and play, and how to respond in the event of an emergency. Students who successfully complete the two-day course will receive a Babysitters Handbook, a certificate from the American Red Cross, and a ZIP code listing in their computer bank for certified babysitters.
Students may sign up for either the two-day morning session (9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.) or the two-day afternoon session (1:30-4:30 p.m.) The library will provide snacks. There is a nominal cost payable to the American Red Cross. Each session can accommodate up to 25 students. Call Becky Hennig at 332-5161 for further information.
