Take care of the kids in your neighborhood when their parents can't be with them! University of Illinois Extension will be offering a babysitting clinic this summer. Interested youth may choose to attend one of the local offerings of the Babysitting Clinic. Participants will learn to watch over the children in their care by learning to build leadership and decision-making skills, choose age-appropriate activities and fun games, create healthy snacks, understand the behaviors of different age groups of children and give you the tools needed to help manage them, and more. Participants will also learn about choking prevention and receive First Aid training. This clinic is designed to help you become a babysitter that families can rely on!
All youth ages 11 and up, who have completed the 5th grade, are welcome to attend for only $5. Pre-registration is required.
