Babysitting Basics summer classes


A Babysitting Basics Training Course will be offered to help youth learn how to be responsible babysitters.   Topics to be covered include employer expectations, caring for infants and young children, age-appropriate toys and activities, safety, emergency and first aid procedures. 

The program is for any youth -- boys and girls -- who have completed 5th grade and above.  There are two identical courses being offered this summer from Washington County Extension and Outreach.  It is a five-day course from 99:30-11:30 a.m. each day.  The cost is $30.  Scholarships available upon request.  Interested youth are encouraged to register as soon as possible, as each class is limited to 25 students.  

Session 1 will be June 13-17.  Session 2 will be August 1-August 5.  Registration should be completed online at
