Pine River Library will host a babysitter training course from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 4 and 5. The two-day course trains teens ages 12 to 18 on basic child care, nutrition and an introductory understanding of early learning and social/emotional literacy skills. The course touches on community leadership, business marketing, entrepreneurship and professionalism. Course 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 child care.
Participants must commit to the full two-day course. If any spots in the course remain open, alumni students can recertify 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 Aug. 1. A limit of 10 participants is needed for this class to run.
