For the third year in a row, Northern Door Children’s Center in Sister Bay is offering a babysitting course to make sure the working public in its area have a wide selection of babysitters to choose from to take care of their kids. The one-day course covers the basics of taking care of infants and small children, the skills needed to handle an emergency, and the rules of being a responsible babysitter. With tourist season coming fast, Karen Corekin from the Northern Door Children’s Center says it is important for working parents to have people they can rely on to take care of their children and meet their needs.
The babysitter education course takes place on May 12 beginning at 9:30 a.m. and is available for children ages 12 and older. The cost is $25.00 and includes all materials, lunch, and a Certificate of Completion. Space is limited and pre-registration is required by Wednesday May 9. To register their child, families should call 920-854-4244 and ask for Karen or Morgan.
