Northwest Fire District Babysitter Program

This class is designed to familiarize students with the basic knowledge and skills to safely care for infants and children. Our goal is to teach our students to be the best babysitter on the block! It is our aim that our students will gain confidence to make smart decisions and stay safe in any babysitting situation.

Keeping convenience in mind for our community members, we are offering the course at three locations this summer. Please be sure to check the location prior to registering for your date. We are excited to continue our partnership with the Golder Ranch Fire District with two courses available at the Golder Ranch Fire and Life Safety Services Building on Magee Road.

Once you register for the course, a member of the Public Education Team will reach out to you via email for online payment prior to the program.
