A total of 25 local and area students have become better babysitters, the result of completing a “Babysitting Basics” all-day course at The Bellevue Hospital.
The participants met from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Monday, June 10 in the hospital’s Burson Conference Rooms. The class is for potential babysitters ages 11 and older.
The course introduced the future babysitters to the roles and responsibilities of the babysitter, including how to handle emergencies and illness, the basics of bathing, diapering, and feeding infants, playtime suggestions, and safety and nutrition.
Each student received a certificate of completion and a handbook. Lunch was also provided for the participants.
The next Babysitting Basics course at The Bellevue Hospital will be held on February 17, 2020. For additional information on the class, contact the Centralized Scheduling Department at 419.483.4040, Ext. 3067.
