Teens get Red Cross certification for babysitting

Registration is underway for Red Cross babysitting classes at all three Fauquier County public libraries. The workshops are free, but teens must register ahead of time and attend both classes in the series to receive certification from the Red Cross. Attendees must be 12 or over. Get the details.

The classes help teens prepare for a babysitting job, choose safe and age-appropriate toys and games, perform first aid, learn diapering and feeding techniques, handle bedtime issues, and learn tips for having a safe babysitting experience.

This and other teen events at the library this summer are part of the Lost … in reading program and are presented with the support of Fauquier CADRE.
