A total of 23 local and area students have become better babysitters, the result of completing a “Babysitting Basics” all-day course at The Bellevue Hospital.
The participants met from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Monday, June 11 in the hospital’s Burson Conference Rooms. The class is for potential babysitters ages 11 and older.
The course introduced the future babysitters to the roles and responsibilities of the babysitter, including how to handle emergencies and illness, the basics of bathing, diapering, and feeding infants, playtime suggestions, and safety and nutrition.
Each student received a certificate of completion and a handbook. Lunch was also provided for the participants.
Members of the class included Dominic Brown, Aralyn Buchanan, Kaden Cramer, Allison Drumm, Lauren Fleming, Shayleigh Foreman, Eva Hancock, Ariana Holzhauer, Karly Humbert, Nevaeh Karl, Hannah Kearns, William Kiser, Kiara Mahon, Ashley Missig, Brie Price, Morgan Ray, Hayden Rex, Hailey Singleton, Carissa Snezek, Kimberly Wenninger, Austin Williams, Hannah Wohlgamuth, and Lydia Wright.
