Canadian Red Cross Babysitting Course

Provided by Lauren Smithson

Sunday, May 26, 2019

9:00am to 4:00pm


Course Description

The Babysitting course, refreshed and revised, now has a greater emphasis on First Aid skills. The Canadian Red Cross Babysitting course covers everything from managing difficult behaviours to essential content on leadership and professional conduct as a babysitter. Babysitting promises to deepen and enhance the responsibility that older youth feel when caring for younger children. This updated curriculum, complete with new science, also provides improved learning when it comes to giving the appropriate care in the event of an emergency.



Ages 11 and up (by the end of 2019)


Course Content

  • First Aid Content: Check, Call, Care (includes phoning EMS/911), glove removal, recovery position, conscious choking (adult/child/baby/alone), CPR (baby/child), illness, asthma (includes use of inhaler and spacer), anaphylaxis (includes use of EpiPen), poisoning, insect stings, wound care (i.e. minor cuts and scrapes, splinters, nosebleeds, bumps and bruises, life-threatening bleeding, burns), head, neck and back injuries, broken bones, seizures

  • Safety tips for children of all ages

  • Tips on starting your own babysitting business and babysitting fun kit

  • What are the respective rights and responsibilities of the babysitter and the family hiring one 

  • How to make the children's environment safe and enjoyable

  • Some great games and other ideas for having fun with the kids while babysitting

  • What to do if anything makes the babysitter uncomfortable

  • How to cope with common problems, like tantrums and crying


Course Includes

  • Red Cross Babysitting Book

  • Red Cross Babysitting Certification Card

  • A day of fun and learning facilitated by Lauren Smithson

What to Bring

  • Writing utensils

  • A cabbage patch sized doll or stuffed animal 

  • Lunch, snacks and a labeled water bottle

  • Please encourage your future babysitter to write down or keep on file in their head any specific questions they have about babysitting and or safety topics…our course covers a lot of content, however I do like to know if there are specific questions or scenarios that anyone has.

Introducing Lauren Smithson...

My connection with children has taken me a long way in my life. I have been able to use SuperFin, my aquatics school, to inspire, motivate, and enforce a positive attitude and healthy lifestyle within children for decades. As my company and I have grown, I have learned that teaching swimming is so much more than properly doing strokes in the water. It teaches children about problem solving, setting goals, and the importance of fitness for a healthy body, mind, and spirit. It has also helped me connect to my team of strong, enthusiastic women, as well as the caring and hard-working guardians of our students. These relationships have encouraged me to think about why I am in this profession, and why I have decided to dedicate my life to working with children. I realized I have about a billion “whys”, which include: my love for children, my desire to be a mentor and guide my students as well as my team towards a progressive lifestyle, and so on. My passion for teaching in the water and out of the water is something that I am very excited to extend into the Canadian Children’s Theatre Co. community with the Baby Sitting Course…I can’t wait to connect with your children, learn and have fun!

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
Directed by Jennifer Martin
Featuring our Kids Get Staged Program Performers
Join Dorothy Gale and her little dog, Toto, as they are swept away to the Land of Oz by a Kansas cyclone. Wearing the magic slippers she earned quite unexpectedly, Dorothy bravely goes in search of the mighty Wizard of Oz in the hope that he can help her find a way back home. On the way, she picks up some delightful new friends: the Scarecrow seeking brains, the Cowardly Lion who wants courage and the Tin Man who desires a heart above everything. This magical adventure celebrates the importance of mind and heart, the courage in facing what is feared and the need to dream, to dare and to ride out storms.

You Can't Take It With You
Directed by Jennifer Martin
Featuring our Show Time for Teens Program Performers
The family of Martin Vanderhof lives “just around the corner from Columbia University — but don’t go looking for it.” Grandpa, as Martin is more commonly known, is the paterfamilias of a large and extended family of charming eccentrics. His granddaughter, Alice, is an attractive and loving girl who is still embarrassed by her family’s idiosyncrasies. When Alice falls for her boss, Tony, a handsome scion of Wall Street, she fears that their two families – so unlike in manner, politics and finances – will never come together. But why be obsessed by money? After all, you can’t take it with you...
