Whether you babysit all the time or provide care infrequently, it's important to keep your wide range of skills fresh and ready for anything. To that end, we've created a variety of refresher materials, including quizzes, games, activities and videos that you can use to remember all the information you learned during your Red Cross babysitter training in New Jersey.

The New Jersey Babysitter Training course from the American Red Cross is designed those ages 11 to 15, and is delivered in a traditional classroom setting. With caring, compassionate, knowledgeable instructors who can help you understand the proper techniques for caring for infants and children, you can become a more capable, confident babysitter.

The American Red Cross offers three types of New Jersey babysitting classes. All courses, once successfully completed, will give you access to a printable certificate that you can use to show potential employers and grow your business. Designed for those ages 11 and older, our babysitter training courses take just a few short hours to complete, but can help make all the difference to the families you care for.

All of our New Jersey babysitting classes culminate with certification exams that allow you to prove your skills. Upon successful completion of the class – and the exam – you'll receive a certificate that you can print and show to potential employers, access online or via a QR code, which you can embed in your resume. All certificates are valid for two years.

At the Red Cross we provide those ages 11 and older with a comprehensive education in babysitting and child care best practices. However, it's important to note that none of our babysitting classes in New Jersey are intended for state-licensed child care providers, as our courses do not meet all of the state requirements for such certification.
