This course, aimed at potential babysitters or prospective employers of babysitters, introduces the essentials of babysitting.
Please note, there is no legal age for babysitting. It is the responsibility of the parents using common sense to make the decision as to whether the babysitter is mature and responsible enough to look after their child. This course is suitable for a potential babysitter of any age.
The short course explains the responsibilities of both parent and sitter, and explores the importance of continuity of care, child safety, and the setting of boundaries for both the children and the babysitter. You will also be given an introduction to child development and care activities for young children.
- You will learn how to interact with the adults you babysit for
- You will learn how to care for the children you are responsible for
- You will learn what to expect from the children you are responsible for
Advantages of this course
- As a parent leaving children with someone new, the course offers details of the information exchange and expectation sharing that should occur before the babysitting starts
- For the babysitter, the need for an exchange of information and expectations are explained, and the course provides a starting point for finding out more about child development and care activities
- Additional activities encourage you to reflect on your learning
- There is also suggested extended reading that gives both practical information and links to websites to expand knowledge
