This six hour course is designed to teach the basic management principles involved in the minding of babies, pre schoolers and school aged children. Emphasis is placed on safety and the course will give people confidence for coping with emergency situations and baby- sitting responsibilities. The course was designed in conjunction with the NZ Police and the Plunket Trust.
The knowledge and skills you will learn in the Baby Sitter course will enable you to manage an emergency situation until help arrives. When an accident does occur, it is vital to have someone who has the skills to assist children in an emergency.
Alternatively, you can complete the Basic Life Support (CPR) Course which will provide you with a broader knowledge of treating emergency situations.
