Expecting the unexpected. Childcare is a big responsibility.Most of us when asked the question “are you ready for the challenge”, would not necessarily respond with a confident yes. This course is designed to equip youth with skills needed to be ready and to have the type of skills needed to handle an emergency before and when it happens. We cover learning about being prepared, taking preventative safety measures to keep children safe, giving basic childcare, stopping the spread of infection, recognizing emergencies and what to do. In addition we explore leadership styles used when babysitting, first aid,CPR and AED.At the completion of the course each student will receive a certificate of completion. If interested and successfully pass the skills testing, each student will receive a certification card for CPR and First Aid. There is an additional $25 fee, payable to the instructor, for CPR and first aid certification.
