Babysitting Course

NOTICE: Due to ongoing concerns related to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) all Town facilities are closed to the public. This includes the Town Hall, Recreation Centre, Library and Park Huts. We have also made the difficult decision to temporarily postpone all upcoming recreation programs in Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s.

This includes Easter Camp, Easter Scavenger Hunt, Spring Fitness, Babysitting Course, and Stay Safe at Home Course. Updates on new rescheduled dates for these programs will be posted as soon as they become available.

Youth ages 11-16 are encouraged to take part in our Babysitting Course, which is facilitated by the Canadian Red Cross and First Aid Vitals.

The Babysitting course, refreshed and revised, now has a greater emphasis on First Aid skills. The Canadian Red Cross Babysitting course covers everything from managing difficult behaviours to essential content on leadership and professional conduct as a babysitter. Babysitting promises to deepen and enhance the responsibility that older youth feel when caring for younger children. This updated curriculum, complete with new science, also provides improved learning when it comes to giving the appropriate care in the event of an emergency.
