Local middle and high school students age 12 and up have the chance to become certified baby-sitters in a five-day course offered by the Carson City/Storey County 4-H program.
The baby-sitting certification course is planned for March 26-30, the dates that correspond with the Carson City School District’s spring break.
Classes will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. each day at the Carson City/Storey County Cooperative Extension Office, 2621 Northgate Lane, Room 12.
Topics include ages and stages of youth, keeping children safe in emergencies, basic first aid, and how to apply for a baby-sitting job.
