We are an Authorized Training Center for The Red Cross and I would like to offer the Babysitter Training Class for 10 teens and young adults who live in the City of Newburgh.
This class teaches the following:
• First Aid
• Child Development
• Home safety and child proofing
• How to set up your own business
• Tools needed to negotiate with families pricing and responsibilities.
This class is approximately 6 hours, one full day with a lunch break.
The target age group is 16 – 21.
Each student will receive Red Cross Certification in Babysitting.
Each student will also receive a Health Education Programs Certification Completion Award.
In addition, each student will also receive a workbook with all the training and business forms included.
