The Beebe School of Nursing invites girls and boys ages 12 and 13 to participate in baby-sitter education classes.  This year the classes are for one-day only, rather than two days. The classes will take place at the Beebe School of Nursing. They will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the following days: June 21, 23, 28 and 30.
 
Students will learn how to be safe and effective baby-sitters. Instructors will be registered nurses and a Delaware State policeman.
 
Topics to be covered include: characteristics and qualities of a good sitter; child development and age-appropriate activities; safe home practices for fire and protection; first-aid practices for minor and medical problems; and infant and child cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and airway obstruction management.  Students will get hands-on practice in First Aid and CPR methods. Classes will take place at Beebe School of Nursing, located directly behind Beebe Medical Center in Lewes.  The cost is $50 per student.  Participants should bring a bag lunch.  Juice and snacks will be provided.
 
Registration will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis.  For more information, or to obtain a registration form, call the Beebe School of Nursing at (302) 645-3251.
