Waterloo babysitter training

WATERLOO (KWWL) - Taking care of young children – whether yours or someone else's – is an important responsibility.

The American Red Cross Hawkeye Chapter Babysitter's Training is open to boys and girls 10 to 15 years old. All courses are taught by an authorized Red Cross Babysitter's Training instructor. The next trainings are Saturday, February 20 and Friday, March 19 from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Hawkeye Chapter, 2530 University Avenue, Waterloo. The cost is $40.

Certified babysitters learn to perform basic child-care skills such as diapering and feeding, how to handle bedtime and discipline issues, plus care for common injuries and emergencies such as choking, burns, cuts and bee stings.

Each year, the Red Cross trains and certifies more than 121,000 sitters nationwide through the Babysitter's Training program. Certified babysitters learn leadership skills, basic care, accident prevention techniques, and first aid procedures that can save a child's life.

To register call the Hawkeye Chapter to register at (319) 234-6831 or visit www.hawkeyechapter.org. Pre-registration is required. Reserve your spot today as class size is limited. Please bring a sack lunch. At the course, youth will receive a babysitter's training handbook, emergency reference guide and CD-Rom.
