From page A2 | November 20, 2012 |

The city of Davis will offer a first-aid training for baby-sitters the weekend of Dec. 1-2.

The purpose of this American Red Cross course is to provide youths ages 11 to 15 with the information and skills necessary to provide safe and responsible care for children in the absence of parents or adult guardians. In addition, students also will learn and practice child and infant CPR, rescue breathing, choking rescue and preventing disease transmission.

This course is fun and fast-paced with hands-on activities, videos, role-plays and discussions. Participants must be at least 11 years old by the last day of the course. The certification is valid for two years.

“You’ll learn to be the best baby-sitter on the block,” a news release said. “Plus, you’ll gain the confidence to make smart decisions and stay safe in any baby-sitting situation.”

Participants will learn to supervise children and infants; perform basic child-care skills such as diapering and feeding; choose safe, age-appropriate games and toys; handle bedtime and discipline issues; identify safety hazards and prevent injuries; care for common injuries and emergencies such as choking, burns, cuts, and bee stings; and find and interview for baby-sitting jobs.

The class meets from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, and 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2, at the Community Pool Building, 201 E. 14th St. in Davis.

The cost is $125. Pre-registration is required. Register at the city of Davis Community Services Office, 600 A St., Suite C, or online at http://www.cityofdavis.org. For information, call 530-757-5626.
