American Red Cross Babysitting - R20529

Would your child know what to do if a child choked when he or she was babysitting? Would he or she know how to call 911 or handle a nosebleed? The American Red Cross teaches all of these things... and more!

The course is designed to provide youth who are planning to babysit with the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and responsibly care for children and infants. This training will help participants develop leadership skills, learn how to develop a babysitting business, keep themselves and others safe, and help children behave. In addition, participants will learn about basic child care and basic first aid.

Pizza, water and a dessert is provided for lunch. Participants are required to bring a doll (please, no American Girl dolls) or stuffed animal to class to practice skills.

Music Together - R20544

Toddlers learn by watching, playing and experimenting. Just imagine how much they could learn in a music class where children participate at their own levels-singing, moving, listening, observing, and exploring musical instruments in a welcoming and supportive environment. Child development researchers have found that grouping together children of varying ages fosters natural, family-style learning. Our mixed-age class allows children to grow musically while interacting socially with their peers. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because their children can go to class together.

Any or all of your child's caregivers (Parents, Grandparents, Nannies etc) can come share in the experience.
