Looking For Groups Interested In Offering The 4-H Babysitter Training Program


Walpole – The Bristol/Norfolk County 4-H Youth Program is looking for groups such as libraries, recreation departments, community groups, and other youth organizations, who would be interested in presenting the 4-H babysitter training program this summer. The goal of the 4-H babysitter’s program is to prepare young people for babysitting and childcare by educating them to become capable, caring and responsible babysitters. Topics include child safety, first aid, emergency response, feeding, discipline, entertaining, stages of child development and the business of babysitting. The course takes 6-8 hours to complete and can be covered in a variety of time slots. We can either present the program for you or we can give you the resources to present the program yourself. Each participant will receive a Babysitter Manual and a Babysitter Certificate and ID card upon completion of the course. There is a fee to present this program. For more information on the 4-H Babysitter Program, contact 4-H Educator Jay Field at (508) 668-9793 or by email at 4-H is an outreach education program of the University of Massachusetts/Amherst in cooperation with the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.
