Babysitting Classes

VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital’s Health and Wellness Department will offer a free babysitting course this summer that teaches essential childcare skills needed for responsible babysitters caring for infants, toddlers and older children.

The Smartkids 101 Babysitting Training Course is especially designed for students between 11 and 14 years old. The class will teach students how to react in an emergency situation, including child and infant safety, poison control, CPR, first aid and basic childcare skills. Students will also learn about business and build self-esteem — skills that will last a lifetime. At the end of the course, students will receive a babysitting certificate and be certified in American Heart-Heart Savers CPR and First Aid.

This one day, 8-hour course will be taught in the VCU Health CMH Education Center (inside the C.A.R.E. Building in room 1113) at 1755 N. Mecklenburg Avenue in South Hill from 7:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. on the following dates: June 30, July 14, July 21, and August 4. A parent must come inside and sign the consent forms when they drop their child off.

The Smartkids 101 Babysitting Training Course is free but limited to 10 participants per day. To register for one of these courses, please contact the CMH Health & Wellness Department at (434) 584-5390.
