Youth in Milton who are interested in getting their certification in babysitting will have the opportunity to do so this weekend.

The course, being hosted by SOS 4 Kids Inc., aims to empower youth and provide them with the confidence and skills required to care for both themselves and for other children.

It will cover the management of difficult behaviours as well as essential content on leadership and professional conduct.

Along with learning how to care for babies, toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children, participants will also learn problem-solving and decision-making skills for emergencies, strategies for creating a safe environment and preventing injuries, communication, basic business skills and more.

The course is taking place this Saturday, Oct. 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at St. Paul’s United Church, located at 123 Main St. East and the cost is $84.75 per person.
