Participants will learn the responsibilities of babysitting in this two-part workshop. The "Safety Session," conducted by Steve Espey of Garden City Recreation and Detective Richard Pedone, focuses on safety issues at the parks, the pool, and in the home. The "First Aid Session," conducted by JoAnnTanck, RN and Georgette Basso, RN, focuses on the care and health of young children. Participants are asked to bring a doll so they may practice the proper ways to hold a baby while feeding or diapering. Nutrition, illnesses, and accidents will be among the topics addressed.
The "Babysitting Workshop" is limited to 30 young adults. This program has been funded by the Friends of the Garden City Public Library.
