New Mother and Baby on a Picnic
A child care safety education course for new and seasoned baby-sitters.  Teaches child development, practical child care skills, basic first-aid, how to handle emergencies, and the characteristics and responsibilities of a successful baby-sitter. Please bring: a lunch, a doll or stuffed animal to practice diapering and choke-saving techniques, and a “Babysitter’s Magic Bag” filled with interesting and safe items that kids would like. Upon completion of the class participants will receive a certificate of completion. 



Please bring to class:
-Pen / pencil and notebook
-A doll or stuffed animal to practice diapering and choke-saving techniques.
-“Babysitter’s Magic Bag” filled with interesting and safe items that kids would like. A baby sitter's magic bag is a durable bag or box (often kids like to decorate them) filled with collection of items: craft materials, crayons, pipe cleaners, small toys, puppets, books that are inexpensive and easily found in your home or at a department store. When you baby sit, the “treasures” from your magic bag will help make the time you spend with children fun and interesting. Keep in mind the ages of the children for whom you may be responsible. Make sure all items are safe and not broken. There should be no sharp edges, loose wires, or buttons that can injure a child by cutting or swallowing. Have fun and use your imagination! Bring the completed box or bag to class.  You will be sharing your ideas with the other students in class.

COVID GUIDELINES
-Effective 2/23 the Board of Health voted to make masks OPTIONAL in all town buildings. If this policy changes before class starts or during the session we will make an updated announcement.
