Babysitting 101

Babysitting 101 is a high-quality program that will provide young adolescents the skills to be safe, nurturing and fun babysitters. Targeting both girls and boys ages 12 to 14; this class will help participants become more confident, responsible and prepared caregivers. Babysitting 101 is taught by instructors from Arkansas Children's using the Safe Sitter curriculum and is a great introduction to the basics of babysitting. Choking Rescue, CPR and other important safety topics are addressed, but this one-day class does not include certification in these areas. Fee is $35 (due morning of class). Fee includes class materials and a healthy lunch.
