Babysitter Training Course

KDSC’s Babysitter Training Course for ages 10 and up is 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

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.

*Includes an illustrated reference book with group exercises and note-taking pages.

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.
