Are you a babysitter? Do you want to start babysitting? Then you need to take our Child and Babysitting Safety (CABS) course.
Get your babysitting business off to a great start and show parents that you are a professional that can be trusted caring for their child with CABS.
Babysitting is usually a teenager’s first attempt at building and running a small business. Our new Child and Babysitting Safety (CABS) course comes in a magazine-format guide designed to engage and inform the aspiring babysitter. It gives teenagers everything they need to know, from getting started, to dealing with parents and children, to key safety, caregiving, and first aid tips.
The CABS course manual gives teenagers essential information, but it doesn’t read like a textbook. We’ve broken childcare and babysitting down into sections, combining practical information with graphics and images designed to pull teenagers in and keep them engaged.
CABS class teaches CPR & choking, water hazards, fun activities to entertain children of various age groups, infant and child feeding, diapering procedures, providing emergency care, basic first aid care and much more!
Class includes a certification card to show parents and future babysitting clients that you are a certified CABS babysitter, and a book to review everything you will learn in the class.
