The Red Cross babysitting class is for students in Grades 6-8 or 11-14 years old. There are two 3.5 hour classes on two consecutive Sundays. Participants receive instruction in basic infant care, first aid for burns, bleeding, choking, head injuries, and stings; poison prevention and treatment, and safety precautions. Certification cards are provided at the end of the class. Students must attend both classes to receive a card. There is a set of classes every month from September to May.
