OUR FAVOURITE BABYSITTER - a two-part course for teenagers who look after younger children.
About the course:
This is a hands-on, practical course featuring First Aid for babysitters plus the ins and outs of looking after younger children. It is designed for teenagers aged 13 - 18 years:
Part One: First Aid training for babysitters including CPR (practice with manikins), choke-rescue techniques (practice with manikins), emergency situations such as burns, asthma, allergic reactions, poisonings, seizures, bangs on the head, broken bones, etc, and getting help: phone the parents or phone an ambulance?
Part Two: Practical advice for babysitting including child safety and accident prevention, ideas for play, information about child development, and how to communicate well with children and their parents.
The course runs for three hours.
Participants receive a booklet to complement the explanations and demonstrations on the course, as well as a certificate.

The next Babysitters course is scheduled for Sunday 5th May, 2024 from 1.30pm - 4.30pm. It will be held at Nathan Homestead in Manurewa, just two minutes from the motorway offramp and just around the corner from Auckland's beautiful Botanic Gardens - the perfect opportunity for the taxi driver parents to go for a quiet walk and a cup of coffee!
