The American Red Cross will offer a Babysitter's Training Course February 16 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Springfield Red Cross, 1545 N. West Bypass.
The course is for 11 - 15 year olds who want to get the sills and cofindence to safely and responsibly care for children and infants, as well as some tools to help them get started in their own babysitting business. Caregiving skills take prospective young sitters from feeing to diapering and playtime to bedtime routines. Participants will also learn how to handle emergencies such as injuries, illnesses and household accidents.
Registration is required. Information at www.redcross.org/take-a-class.
