The new Child and Babysitting Safety (CABS) program from ASHI gives teenagers and young adults everything they need to know for safe and successful babysitting. From getting started with their business, to dealing with parents and children, to key safety, caregiving, and first aid tips, the magazine-format CABS guide and vlogger-style video make learning fun.

The class will be taught by WhidbeyHealth EMS Lead Paramedic and Public Education Coordinator, Robert May.

Students can take the class from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on any Saturday in groups at your request. (PLEASE NOTE: the next scheduled class is March 21 at Coupeville Library during school break; please go here: https://sno-isle.libnet.info/event/3881607 and click on the "Register" link.)

This class is free, thanks to WhidbeyHealth Emergency Medical Services who are funded for community education through the Foundation. Please bring a sack lunch or be prepared to buy lunch in the cafe.

Students will be trained to perform required skills competently without assistance.

Successful completion is based on achievement of the core learning objectives rather than a prescribed instruction time.

The Health Education Center is at WhidbeyHealth Medical Center lower level. Take Birch St. and park behind the hospital near courtyard and enter there.

We are happy to provide additional classes by request.  Contact Misty at 360.914.3171.
