Child and Babysitting Safety


Child And Babysitting Safety (CABS)

If you are wanting to start babysitting for your parents and other families in your neighborhood, then this class is for you! We will show you how to be a responsible and successful babysitter where families can call on to help take care of their younger children.  If you are ambitious, you can make your babysitting job into your first business.

Child And Babysitting Safety (CABS)

Babysitting is usually a teenager’s first attempt at building and running a small business. Our new Child and Babysitting Safety (CABS) course comes in a magazine-format guide designed to engage and inform aspiring babysitters. It gives teenagers everything they need to know, from getting started to dealing with parents and children to key safety, caregiving, and first aid tips.

The CABS course manual gives teenagers essential information, but it doesn’t read like a textbook. We’ve broken childcare and babysitting down into sections, combining practical information with graphics and images designed to keep them engaged.

Course highlights include:

  • Babysitting as a Business — Everything a teenager needs to know to get started.
  • Safety and Injury Prevention — Guidelines to make sure that everyone stays safe.
  • Leadership — Strategies to build confidence when responding to conflict.
  • Play Time — Tips on age-appropriate play and staying involved.
  • Basic Caregiving Skills — Feeding, burping, diapering, and safe sleep practices.
  • First Aid — The knowledge to go with the responsibility.

A curriculum to build peace of mind in babysitters and parents.

Sending a teenager out in the world can be nerve-wracking — as much as leaving your children in the care of one! The new CABS course can help build peace of mind in everyone concerned, by giving teenagers a proven, effective way to care for children. Course highlights
