American Red Cross babysitting & child care courses can help you provide quality care to children of all ages. Developed by experts in the industry, our online and in-person courses are available to those ages 11 and older.

Babysitting & Child Care Courses include topics such as 

  • choosing age-appropriate activities

  •  basic child care - bottle feeding

  • child behavior

  •  leadership

  •  professionalism

  • safety & starting a babysitting business

Please note: Red Cross child care classes are not intended for those seeking certification for state-licensed child care providers and does not meet all state requirements for such certification.

At Fierce First Response, the pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED certification may be added to the American Red Cross  babysitting course. 

Although every situation is unique, there are some universal skills and techniques that every babysitter should have. Our courses were designed with this principle in mind and can help you deliver the care that families need. Just a few of the things our babysitting classes cover include:

Basic Care for Infants and Children

Basic First Aid

Child Behavior

Age-Appropriate Activities

Emergency Protocols



First Aid, CPR & AED Training

( Certification is Optional )

Along with our industry-leading child care and babysitter classes, we also offer First Aid and CPR/AED certification courses. Also available online and in person, these classes allow you to gain additional skills that can help save a life. 

Successful completion of these courses gives you a two-year certification and access to refresher materials – so you can keep your skills sharp between certifications.
