FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is my child old enough to babysit?

Most states do not have any formal laws surrounding how old a child should be before they start to babysitting. The state of Michigan recommends that a child be 12 years old, but the decision is ultimately left up to both the babysitter's parents and the children's parents. 

Caring for children is a big responsibility. All babysitters, regardless of age, should be mature and responsible. I recommend encouraging your child to start gaining experience by caring for children while an adult is present. Once your child has gained some supervised experience and has proven that they are responsible when caring for children, they will likely be ready to take Babysitting 101 and start babysitting independently. 

Does my child need to bring anything to class?

Please bring a sack lunch and water bottle to class! All other supplies will be provided. 

Will this class result in a CPR Certification?

No. Although students will be taught the basics of CPR, this class does not meet the requirements for CPR certification. 

Can I reserve a class for a group of students?

Absolutely! Please contact me with details and I will work with you to schedule a class. Group pricing is available. 

What is your illness or inclement weather policy?

If your child cannot make it to class due to an illness or unforeseen circumstance, please contact me in advance to be issued a free make-up class. If I am not notified of the cancellation prior to class, you may forfeit your registration fee. 

In instances of severe weather, decisions will be made based on Ottawa County conditions and closures. You will be notified via phone or email no later than 7am on the day of class, and issued a free make-up class.

 

If class continues despite weather conditions, use your best judgment on road conditions in your area. If you choose to stay home, please let me know prior to class to be issued a free make-up class. If I am not notified of the cancellation prior to class, you may forfeit your registration fee.
