Based on the Canada Safety Council Babysitter Training Course. It is designed to provide current information concerning childcare for young babysitters to use while babysitting and caring for younger siblings. The training will help prevent accidents and promote responsible management of any situation that may arise when children are under their care.

The Babysitter’s Training Course covers such topics as:

  • Becoming a successful babysitter
  • Caring for children from three months to school-aged
  • The behaviour and misbehaviour of children
  • Handling emergencies
  • Caring for a sick or injured child
  • Prevention and Basic First Aid

Student Reference Book

This book summarizes the course sessions and provides child care information that will be of value to the graduates during their babysitting years and their adult lives. The illustrated reference book includes group exercises and note taking pages. A summary sheet is included which can be used to collect important information from the employer at the beginning of each babysitting job.


Each course graduate (passing grade of 75% on the final examination)  is presented with a wall certificate and graduation wallet card. These provide validation that the holder has completed eight hours of training and successfully passed a comprehensive examination on the course material.
