KDSC’s Babysitter Training Course for ages 9 to 12. Loaded with special features and will teach young people about: the rights/responsibilities of the employer/the child/the babysitter; the developmental and behavioral characteristics of children; basic child care, nutrition, injury prevention; basic first aid procedures; how to handle emergency situations and illness; a variety of age-appropriate games, songs, and toys; the business of babysitting.
KDSC’s Safe@Home course for ages 9 to 12 provides children with important skills and knowledge to be safe and responsible when home alone, including how to prevent problems, handle real-life situations, and stay constructively occupied. Upon the completion of this program, children will be familiar with: their responsibilities when they are home alone; establishing a daily routine and managing their time; personal safety knowledge and skills; what to do in case of an emergency; fire safety; basic first aid.
Designed for ages 9 – 12, the Street Smart course follows ICBC-approved guidelines for children’s safety education, emphasizing fundamental principles and skills that children can carry through life. They will learn the essential ingredients of safe behaviors in a variety of environments – as a passenger in a vehicle, as a pedestrian (both alone as with groups), and as a rider of a scooter, skateboard, or bicycle. The course emphasizes the importance of peers looking out for each other’s safety.
Designed for ages 9 to 12, the Kids Care First Aid course provides an age-appropriate introduction to basic first aid, starting with how to get help, how to describe a situation, and what they should or shouldn’t do in a range of situations, complete with hands-on examples. They’ll learn the contents of a first aid kit, and the proper use of the various items in them. Most of all, the course emphasizes awareness of potential accidents as key to avoiding the need for first aid.
