As a parent, trusting someone to look after your children can be a very daunting concept. However, there are always going to be times when the need for a Babysitter, or other caregiver, is required; for example, when work and home commitments clash, or when a social event just can’t be missed. This is where a confident, trustworthy and competent babysitter can be a lifesaver.
Being trusted to look after someone else’s children is a big deal, and while family, friends and older siblings are often the first port of call, there are many occasions when parents may need to expand their support network and hire a professional babysitter. Naturally, parents will want to meet and chat with a babysitter before they leave them in charge of their children, but this course in Babysitting can be a huge benefit in building confidence – both for the babysitter and for the prospective parent employers.
While much of a Babysitter’s skill set will be achieved through hands-on experience, some fundamental knowledge is advisable, which is why this course can help to provide a solid base if you’re hoping to become a professional Babysitter.
Aimed at prospective Babysitters of all ages, this course will help students to develop a basic understanding of the responsibilities of both parent and sitter, as well as of the importance of child safety, setting boundaries and continuity of care.
No matter how old you are - whether you’re a school-leaver or someone a little more mature - babysitting can provide a source of extra income that can be earned around other jobs and commitments. Sign up for this course, gain essential knowledge, skills and confidence, and you’ll be well on your way to becoming your neighbourhood’s favourite babysitter!
