If you have a child excited to begin babysitting, taking a babysitting class is a must.

The Volunteer Partners of HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital is offering two classes in March to prepare those ages 11 and older for babysitting. An instructor will prepare participants to be effective caregivers by covering feeding, diapering and basic first aid. Attendees will also learn how to provide safe activities and chose age-appropriate games.

Babysitting skills will be learned through discussion, video presentation and hands-on learning stations.

The cost is $10 per person, which includes lunch and class materials. Registration is required.

For more information or to register, call the hospital’s volunteer services department at 715-717-7439, or visit www.StJoesChipFalls.org/Events-Classes.
