In San Francisco babysitter training from the American Red Cross is available online and in person – depending on the class you choose. However, regardless of the type of course you select, you'll still receive world-class instruction and the latest information.

Our Babysitter's Training course can help you provide confident, capable care to infants and kids ages 10 and younger. Throughout the course you'll learn leadership skills, how to develop a babysitting business, get expert advice on keeping yourself and others safe, get tips on how to help children behave, and learn about basic child care and basic first aid.

Each class covers a range of important topics in varying depth (based on the experience level of its students). These include: basic child care for infants and children, basic first aid, child behavior, choosing age-appropriate activities, emergency protocols, professionalism, and leadership. As you progress through each level of our San Francisco babysitting classes, you'll become more capable and confident in your skills.
