GSSJC presents a Red Cross Babysitting Training. This training covers everything from the business of babysitting (advertising, interviewing, charging, budgeting) to proper activities while on the job (developmental stages for kids of all ages, activities to do with the kids, etc). It also covers how to handle behavioral problems and what to do in an emergency. This is not a first aid/cpr/aed course though some basic information on what to do will be included. Red Cross certification cards will be emailed to the participants following the class.
Note: This class is for girls 11 and older, per Red Cross standards.

Drop-off and Supervision: This is a drop-off event, adults do not stay. However, we do need a few background-checked adults to stay for ratio and assistance with passing out materials, etc. Adults- please do not sign up unless you are committed for sure. If you sign up and can longer attend, please be sure to cancel in a timely manner- our ratio numbers dependa on you! 
Adult Requirements: Adults must have an up-to-date membership and background check since they will be supervising girls.
Bring: Girl Permission Slip/Medical Form or Adult Emergency Slip; a writing utensil, a sack lunch, and a doll/stuffed animal suitable for diapering.
Medium-sized baby dolls work the best. Stuffed animals that sit on their hind legs (such as a dog or cat)  or do not have baby like features (sponge bob or a starfish) do not work for diapering. 
Tagalongs: No tagalongs allowed at this event.
