Babysitting course coming to Rimbey soon


By Treena Mielke

Girls and boys who want to earn a few extra dollars, learn about responsibility and caring for young children, and become more independent need to check out a babysitting course being offered in Rimbey.

The Red Cross babysitting course to be taught by Kayla Hoffer, the leader of the out-of-school care program, is to be offered Oct. 11 to 14 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Kinsmen Room of the Rimbey Community Centre.

Peter Stenstrom, Rimbey’s community services co-ordinator, said the program is being in response to requests to bring it to Rimbey.

“Apparently it has been offered in the past and there is quite a few people interested in it. When it wasn’t being offered people were going to Red Deer, Sylvan Lake and other places outside the community. Now we are going to offer it here.”

Stenstrom predicts the program being offered once every three months to keep up with the demand.

He said the eight-hour program, which covers care of infants, accident prevention, and the rights and responsibilities of the babysitter, will be stretched over four two-hour days to accommodate the time demands of young people taking the course.

To register contact the rec department at 403-843-3151.
