Program Details:


PROGRAM HOURS: Friday 3-6pm and Saturday 10am-2pm


LOCATION: In-home setting

To simulate a real babysitting experience, this course takes place in the instructor's home.  Participants will have the opportunity to assess the house for hazards and think on their feet about how to improvise in an unfamiliar house.  We find this realistic situation enhances the training dramatically.

The home is located in NW Bend.  The exact address will be sent in your confirmation email.
