Westborough students complete Red Cross course

Babysitter Course Instructor and WYFS Counselor, Betheda Shuman, discusses proper child care with the recent class of Red Cross Babysitter Training Course students.

Westborough – Twelve Westborough students recently successfully completed an American Red Cross Babysitting class sponsored by the Westborough Youth & Family Services (WFYS).

Red Cross certified instructor and WYFS counselor, Betheda Shuman, ran the nine-hour program during the week of July 16.? Babysitter trainees learned about a variety of topics including how to care for infants and children, be good role models, interview for jobs, solve problems and handle emergencies. After completing the course, participants were invited to display their contact information on a bulletin board outside Room 21, second floor of the Forbes Municipal Building, 45 West Main Street, for anyone interested in hiring a certified babysitter.

WYFS runs the American Red Cross certified babysitting course four times a year. The course costs $65 (scholarships available) and participants must be at least 11 years old and Westborough residents. For more information or to be put on the list to receive information about the next course, call 508.366.3090, or email: ccairns@town.westborough.ma.us
