The Babysitter's Training Course is designed for youth between 11 and 15 years old.

The foundation of the class is to give students the confidence and skills they need to make smart dicisions and stay safe in any babysitting situation. Class emphasis is on training the students how to:
  • Supervise children and infants

  • Handle bedtime and discipline issues
  • Identify safety hazards and prevent injuries
  • Care for common injuries and emergencies such as choking, burns, cuts and bee stings
  • Communicate effectively with parents
  • Find and interview for babysitting jobs

Students will receive take-home reference and training materials for future use. Upon successful completion of class students will receive a Babysitter's Training certificate issued by the American Red Cross.

One course session consists of two, three hour class periods. Classes are taught in the Layton City Parks and Recreation Downstairs Training Room. The cost to attend class is $40.00.
