This course will include the American Academy of Pediatrics B.L.A.S.T. course curriculum, which provides training in pediatric first aid, household safety, and the fundamentals of childcare. In addition, this course helps prepare children to interview for a babysitting job, select safe, suitable games and activities, prevent accidents and perform basic first aid and CPR. This is the first step to beginning babysitting safely and competently. Topics covered include feeding, burping a baby, spoon-feeding, crying, preparing for bed, behavioral problems, and discipline. AHA certifications in First Aid and CPR are included.
The class will be held from 8 AM-4 PM at the Greenwich EMS Training Center at 1111 East Putnam Avenue.
All participants are encouraged to bring a packed lunch.
