Prospective babysitters will gain the knowledge, confidence and skills necessary to safely and responsibly care for babies and young children, including younger siblings. They will learn about the stages of child development, how to entertain children of all ages, basic first aid, CPR, safety and the business side of babysitting. The latter will focus on how to land jobs and confidently handle interviews with parents who are looking for a babysitter. Lunch and snacks will be provided. The curriculum was developed by Army Child and Youth Services (CYSS) in cooperation with National 4-H. Upon completion of the training, youths will receive a 4-H/Army CYSS babysitter training graduate certificate.
