Virtual Better Babysitters

This is a two-part class, with sessions taking place on two consecutive weekend dates. Each session is two hours long. Participants must attend both sessions to receive their Better Babysitters certificate.

Virtual classes are led by our Better Babysitter instructors and hosted via Zoom.  We have designed these virtual sessions to be engaging and interactive to include videos, polls and opportunities to work together.
