- basic first aid procedures
- how to handle emergency situations and illness
- a variety of age appropriate games, songs, and toys

PRICE: $60.00 (no tax)
Course Time: 9:00am-4:00pm with a half-hour lunch break
What children need to bring: pencil, notebook, water bottle, snacks, lunch, eyeglasses if needed, and a baby-sized doll or stuffed animal.

All students who receive 80% or higher on the final exam will receive a graduation certificate from KDSC. However, it is up to parents to know the laws in their province and to decide if their child (whatever his/her age, and whatever his/her final test score) is old enough or mature enough to babysit, and the circumstances under which he/she should be left alone to care for younger children.
