Westborough – Westborough Youth and Family Services (WYFS) congratulates the recent graduates of their American Red Cross Babysitting classes. Red Cross certified instructor and WYFS counselor Betheda Shuman ran the nine-hour program during the week of Aug. 4. Babysitter trainees learned about a variety of topics including how to care for infants and children, 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 W. Main St., for anyone interested in hiring a certified babysitter.

The Youth & Family Services office runs the Red Cross certified babysitting course four times a year. The cost is $65 (scholarships available.) Participants must be at least 11 years old and preference is given to Westborough residents.

To be added to the list to receive notice of upcoming classes, email ccairns@town.westborough.ma.us or call 508-366-3090.
