American Red Cross to hold babysittier training class

The Madison-Oneida Chapter of the American Red Cross will be holding a Babysitter Training class on Saturday, Jan. 9 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

If you're 11 to 15 years old, you can get the knowledge, skills and confidence to care for infants and school-age children. Combining video, activities, hands-on skills training and discussion for a complete learning experience, Babysitter's Training shows you how to:

A. Respond to emergencies and illnesses with first aid, rescue breathing and other appropriate care

B. Make decisions under pressure

C. Communicate with parents to learn household rules

D. Recognize safety and hygiene issues

E. Manage young children

F. Feed, diaper and care for infants

Participants should bring a diaper-able size doll (if possible) and a lunch and a beverage that do not need to be refrigerated.

There are still openings in this very popular class. Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, call the Chapter at 363-2900 or visit the

website at madisononeidaredcross.org.

Class will be held at the Madison-Oneida Chapter, 100 Washington Ave. (2nd Floor), Oneida.
