Southborough Recreation is again offering their Babysitting 101 course for tweens/teens 12 years old and up. One will be offered over spring break – Monday, April 16th from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.

(I suggest wannabe babysitters take advantage, since the next one isn’t until August 27th.)

Instructors are from Boroughs CPR. As always, the class will teach necessary skills for babysitting and starting a babysitting business:

Designed for 12 year old and up who wishes to learn how to care for infants and children. The course is fun and fast paced with hands-on-activities, role-play and lively discussions. You will learn to be the best babysitter on the block. You will gain confidence to make smart decisions and stay safe in any babysitting situation.

Topics to be covered are: why babysit, starting your babysitting business, babysitting responsibilities, preventing problems, safety & emergency situations, discipline & behavioral issues and activities for various ages.

You will receive a Certificate upon completion of the course along with folder and handouts on some of the training details taught during the day.

The cost is $70. The program will take place in the South Union Building, 21 Highland Street. The registration deadline has been extended to April 11th.
