Babysitting rite of passage
It’s summertime when the call for parents’ helpers and babysitters is on the rise, and the library happens to have a program for would-be babysitters. Kids ages 11 through 15 can register for the Red Cross Babysitting Training two-day workshop being held on Monday and Tuesday, June 25 and 26, from 2 to 5. The course is conducted by a certified Red Cross babysitter trainer. Upon completion of the course, the kids will receive a Red Cross Babysitting certificate, along with the course text, first aid pack, LED flashlight and drawstring bag. The fee for all this is $70 and is due before class. To register, call Teen Services at 203-762-6342. Once the child is placed on the list, a check made out to Wilton Library for the $70 fee must be received to hold the spot.
