At the Red Cross we offer two online Colorado babysitter certification classes: Babysitting Basics, and Advanced Child Care.

These courses allow you to train at your own pace making it easy to become comfortable with the material in each section before moving on to the next.

All of our Colorado babysitting classes culminate with certification exams that allow you to prove your skills.

All certificates are valid for two years.
