Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of the role of the babysitter. They will learn skills in food prep for infants, toddlers and preschool age children including bottle feeding, cutting up food appropriate sizes, etc. They will learn questions to ask when considering a job, after accepting a job and when the job is completed. 

This course does not cover CPR and First Aid, which are strongly recommened additional training. 

Please bring a doll and a diaper if available for students to practice a few infant caring skills.
