We Teach Skills for Life
Babysitting is a big responsibility and we designed The Babysitting Course with that in mind! We certify babysitters that are confident and fully prepared to handle any situation.
With bite-sized lessons and an easy-to-navigate format, this is virtual learning like you haven’t experienced before! Our scenario videos feature real teens in realistic scenes, and learners get a chance to answer how they would act in that same situation.
“We have created a variety of different ways for the babysitter to learn. It is incredibly interactive. It is very easy to move from one module to the next. I’m also really excited about the way that we did some of the experiential learning.”
Deb Hennig, Program Director
To complete the babysitting online course, students will go through each module from 1-6, in order.
The modules start with becoming a babysitter and caring for children, before introducing more serious topics like conflict resolution, staying safe, handling emergencies and basic first aid.
Each module includes Teddy’s Tips, Reflections and Knowledge Checks, helping students move through sections comfortably and increasing their confidence.
The Babysitting Checklist is a big part of The Babysitting Course, and each module talks about how to fill it out and when to refer back to it for answers. Having the checklist printed out when going through the course is a smart idea!
