Pine River Library will be hosting a Babysitter Training course on March 21 and 22 from 9am-3pm. This two-day training course trains teens (12 -18 years old) on basic childcare, nutrition, and an introductory understanding of early learning and social/emotional literacy skills. The course includes integrated 21st century Future Ready skills such as community leadership, business marketing, entrepreneurship, and professionalism. The training also features a full-day basic lifesaving course including CPR/First Aid training, allowing teens to receive official CPR/First Aid cards from the American Heart Association. All teens who participate in the class will become a part of the library’s babysitter referral list, which helps match local teens with Bayfield-area families looking for childcare.
Participants must commit to the full two-day course. If any spots in the course remain open, alumni students can recert their CPR/First Aid certifications. The course fee is $30 and must be paid before the class. The cost for recertification is $20. Register by March 17th. A minimum of 10 participants is needed for this class to run.
