American Red Cross babysitting courses can help you provide quality care to children of all ages. Developed by experts in the industry, our in-person courses are available to those ages 11 and older, and include topics such as choosing age-appropriate activities, basic child care, like bottle feeding, child behavior, leadership, professionalism, safety, starting a babysitting business, and more.
Parents - when bringing your child to the class please walk them to the classroom and make certain that the instructor has a good emergency contact number for you.
A one-half hour lunch break is planned into the day. Please remember to send a lunch with your child. Class ends promptly at the designated time, please arrive fifteen minutes early to retrieve your child from the classroom.
As of 10/29/19 the babysitting class is full. We will be offering another course in the early spring.

The balance will be applied to your household account to use for a future program. If the refund is due to medical reasons, a full refund will be issued as long as your request is accompanied by a doctor’s note.
