Whether you choose our Babysitting Basics, Babysitter's Training or Advanced Child Care classes, you'll learn important tactics, strategies and skills designed to help you provide the best quality care for the children in your charge. 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 Santa Monica babysitting classes, you'll become more capable and confident in your skills, and find new ways to grow your business.
Some of our Santa Monica babysitting classes are available online, which means that you can sign up anytime and begin your classes immediately – or take your classes as your schedule permits. In these classes, all information is developed by experts in the industry and delivered in a simple-to-use format. Once you've successfully completed your class, you'll get a printable certificate that you can show to potential employers.
After successfully completing your Santa Monica babysitting classes, you'll receive a printable certificate that you can use to build your portfolio and share with potential employers.

And because each certificate includes a unique ID and a QR code, employers can easily use a standard QR reader on their favorite smart device to confirm whether your certificate is valid.
