SAFETY FIRST ~ "Sask. Safety Council Babysitting Course"
The local Lakeland Library Branch is much more than just a place to borrow books! Our Neilburg Library is holding a "Babysitting Course" next month that is sanctioned through the "Saskatchewan Safety Council." For more information about this organization, check out their website.
The course will be held, locally, in five, 2-hour sessions (April 5-7 and again on April 12 and 14th).
"This newly updated course is designed to prepare students for the demands of babysitting in the new millennium. It is strongly recommended that students be at least 12 years old before they take this course. Session topics include babysitting basics, child care, safety smarts, playtime, first aid, and handling various emergencies such as fires."
Alisdair asked to take the course. Since you can never have too much knowledge ~ and the $10.00 charge was negligible, I said, "Sure." He ran down to the library yesterday afternoon, when it was open, and signed himself up.
I'm sure he will find the course interesting and very beneficial, even if he doesn't intend to immediately begin to look after other people's children!
