Registration and Course Fee
Most parents like the confidence that their babysitter has been trained in emergencies, basic first aid and breathing difficulties. They also appreciate that they have practical tips on safe play, feeding, and communicating with parents. It’s pretty stressful when parents trust their child to another person. This babysitting safety training helps ensure their kids are with a safe sitter. Babysitting is more than “watching the kids”. It also means being responsible for their safety and well being. Most of all, our Child and Babysitting Safety (CABS) training stresses the priority to keep you and the children you care for safe.
