St. John Ambulance teaches “What Every Babysitter Should Know”

The Peterborough branch of St. John Ambulance will be offering an award-winning, one-day babysitting class, entitled What Every Babysitter Should Know on Thursday, July 31. Class times will be 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

This course was created for the 10-to-14-year-old age group and was designed to teach babysitting, leadership and first-aid skills in a fun and informative way. This course is also ideal for students who may have to look after themselves for short periods because they arrive home from school a little before their parents come home from work. Students learn how to care for themselves, infants, toddlers, and older children, which questions to ask parents, how to give first aid and CPR, what to do in emergencies and more. Activity book sessions, role-playing and hands-on practical first-aid exercises teach essential life-saving skills and also build confidence.

Each student will receive a copy of the award-winning publication “What Every Babysitter Should Know”, and, upon successful completion of the course, a St. John Ambulance babysitter certificate.

Please call 745-0331 for more information and/or to register your child for this upcoming class.”
