Perhaps you don’t have a ton of experience but want to land more babysitting jobs. Maybe you want to be able to command a higher pay rate. Or you just want to be a better babysitter and be prepared for the unexpected scenarios that always arise when children are involved. Regardless of the reason, taking babysitting training and safety courses or classes is always a good idea.
“Your number one job as a babysitter is to keep the kids safe,” and most importantly yourself.
Special certification, training and even a background check can give parents peace of mind that their kids will be in safe hands while they’re away. The benefit to you: You can stand out among other sitters, potentially landing you more jobs and higher pay.
FACT, 66% of parents in a Care.com survey said they'd pay a sitter more if they had safety training. Thankfully, you can easily — and fairly affordably — take courses to prepare you for an emergency.
Basic Babysitter training
Especially when you’re first starting out as a babysitter, you might consider taking a basic babysitting course, which can arm you with knowledge on age-specific activities, safety, how to handle common behaviors and hands-on practice in basic baby care, like changing diapers.
This type of training can give you confidence, so that when you walk into the home, you already know some things that may happen and how to handle them.
Our babysitting training offers Babysitting basics which is geared toward babysitters ages 11 to 17.
First Aid CPR/AED training is a separate course offered in person or blended learning. Contact us for more information.
