Babysitting Certification Class

Learn the business of babysitting with SKIES Unlimited.

Note: This event has already passed.

This course is designed to familiarize teens with the responsibilities of babysitting and also teach skills and techniques needed for sitters to become competent and caring. Students will receive training materials, a certificate of completion and a wallet-sized babysitting course card.

Learn to:

  • Care for children and infants
  • Be a good leader and role model
  • Make good decisions and solve problems
  • Keep children and yourself safe
  • Handle emergencies and injuries
  • Become CPR certified and much more

Youth 6th grade and up will receive American Red Cross First Aid/CPR Certification upon completion of the course.

With parent approval, children ages 13 and older are placed on the garrison-wide babysitting referral list so that parents requesting a babysitter from the CYSS referral list can feel comfortable knowing that their babysitters are adequately trained to CYSS standards!

Garrison policy requires that all youths 12 years old and older must pass a certified baby-sitting course to watch their siblings. All youths 13 years old and older must pass a CPR/first aid class to baby-sit non-family members. The two-day SKIES baby-sitting course meets all of the garrison's requirements.
