What you need to know

This course is intended for students from the age of 10-14 who are thinking about getting ready to babysit. We have designed this course to give a beginner babysitter the tools and confidence to take care of children from infant to preschoolers and beyond.

The babysitting course focuses on the following:

  • Babysitting as a business
  • Infants
  • Toddlers
  • Preschoolers
  • Bathing
  • Feeding/Eating
  • Changing/Washroom
  • Sleep time
  • Bath time
  • Playtime
  • Behaviour management
  • Basic First Aid
  • How to handle an emergency


There is no legal minimum age that a child can begin babysitting, however the Halton Children’s Aid Society recommends the age of 12. It is important to remember that not every 12 year old or teenager is mature enough to care for a child.
