Babysitting

Education-Afterschool-Leadership | Google Grants | Greater Williamson County YMCA

Learn the skills needed to be a trusted, effective babysitter – and the leadership & job interview skills you’ll need to start your own business. Upon completing the course, you will be certified by the Red Cross for Babysitting, First Aid, & CPR!

Get the skills you need to be a great babysitter! Become a Red Cross certified babysitter by learning the decision-making skills, basic first aid and safety, ideas for age appropriate play and basic care skills for babysitting.

Our two-part course takes teens (8-13yrs) through all elements of becoming a well-trained babysitter in order to handle situations that may arise when taking care of children. The course starts out by teaching the basics of handling children, changing diapers, feedings, rescue breathing and general safety rules. Students will also learn to build a resume and how to manage their babysitting business. The second part of the course takes students through the Red Cross First Aid/CPR training for babies and young children. Once both parts of the course are completed, students will then be tested in order to obtain certification.
