Babysitting class offered in Clay Center and Washington

Do you like children? Would you like to earn some extra money this summer? Are you 11 years old or older? Sign up to take the “Babysitting 101” class. Classes will be offered in Clay Center on May 30 and Washington on May 31. Both classes will be given from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

We will be talking about what makes a ‘good’ babysitter—including the responsibilities and how to handle different situations, ages and stages of children, appropriate snacks and toys as well as basic first aid.

Clay Center’s class will meet at the River Valley Extension office, 322 Grant Avenue, Clay Center. Washington’s babysitting class will meet in the Colonial Acres meeting room, 350 Washington, Washington.

There is no fee to attend but pre-registration is required one week prior to the class by calling the River Valley Extension office in Concordia at 785-243-8185.
