COLLEGEVILLE PA – The basics of baby-sitting, running the gamut from sitter responsibilities to what to do in emergencies, will be taught by Penn State Cooperative Extension of Montgomery County over consecutive Thursday nights between Jan. 6 and Feb. 3 (2011) from 7-8:30 p.m. at the county 4-H Center, 1015 Bridge Rd., Collegeville PA.

This event has been added to The Post calendar.

The sessions are open to the public at a cost of $25 per student. Class size is limited and advanced registration is required.

The course will cover responsibilities, child development, feeding, diapering, infant care, age-appropriate toys, and what to do in an emergency. It’s ideal for teens who want to work as baby-sitters, and for family members who watch a younger brother or sister after school.

Students must attend all sessions to receive a certificate.
