2020 Online Babysitting Basics

As we all navigate the Covid-19 Pandemic, we want to offer an online Babysitting Program at no charge currently as many families are navigating childcare options, which may include teen babysitters.  We want to help babysitters be prepared in providing a safe and caring babysitting experience.

In order to receive a certificate of completion of the online Babysitting Program, participants (5th grade or older) would:

  1. Review the posted resources and videos to complete the related worksheets.
  2. Participate in one WebEx meeting hosted by Story County Extension.  These will be provided at 3 pm on Thursdays.  To be invited to the WebEx meeting, email mwilkins@iastate.edu by noon on the Thursday you plan to join the meeting.
  3. Complete a Babysitting quiz using Qualtrics.  This will be emailed to the participant after reviewing online materials and participating in the WebEx meeting.
  4. A certificate of completion for the Babysitting Program will be emailed to you.  This certificate does not provide certification for first aid or CPR.  First Aid and CPR certification requires additional time for training through a program of your choice.
