BABYSITTING TRAINING

Due to COVID-19, YMCA Babysitting Trainings look a little different than you’re used to, for the safety of our members and staff. We require participants to wear a mask during class. Learn more about our current options below! 


This eight-hour American Red Cross Babysitting Course is a hands-on way to learn everything you need to know about babysitting. Start your babysitting business on the right foot and learn how to be a safe, professional and reliable sitter. This course will teach you to be safe on the job, how to recognize an emergency and how to handle it effectively. 

Included in the course is a Pediatric American Red Cross First Aid and CPR Certification that is valid for two years. A pizza lunch is provided. After successful completion of the training, participants will have the opportunity to gain experience by volunteering up to 10 hours at a YMCA Child Care location.
