Program Description

Program Details


Want to make babysitting your business? Come to the Library for a free babysitting clinic for 5th graders and older!

This program provides an opportunity for students to think about babysitting as a business, including ways to get started and communication with families. Participants will also learn about ages and stages of youth, identify ways to be a safe babysitter, and find out what to do in case of an emergency. 

Registration is required.
