ALTON — Alton Memorial Hospital is partnering with St. Louis Children’s Hospital on two classes aimed at children in June.
The first is Babysitting 101 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 13, in the cafeteria meeting rooms. The class is taught by a Children’s Hospital instructor and is a great introduction to the basics of babysitting. A 28-page workbook and light snack are provided.
Topics include the business of babysitting, child development, safety and first aid, and games.
The cost is $30 per child. Pre-registration is required by calling (314) 454-5437 or toll-free (800) 678-5437.
On Thursday, June 18, the class is Staying Home Alone. This parent-child class, led by a Children’s Hospital facilitator, will help parents and children determine the child’s readiness — physically, mentally and emotionally — to stay home alone and help prepare them for this experience.
The class will meet from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. June 18 in the cafeteria meeting rooms. The cost is $25 per family and pre-registration is required by calling (314) 454-5437 or toll-free (800) 678-5437.
