Babysitting Courses

The Red Cross Babysitting course has been refreshed and revised, now with a greater emphasis on First Aid skills. The Canadian Red Cross Babysitting course covers everything from managing difficult behaviours to essential content on leadership and professional conduct as a babysitter. Babysitting promises to deepen and enhance the responsibility that older youth feel when caring for younger children. This updated curriculum provides improved learning when it comes to giving the appropriate care in the event of an emergency.

Swimming Lessons
Red Cross Preschool Swimming Lessons

Red Cross Preschool Lessons are for children age 4 months to 5 years old. For the first three levels, kids move into the next level based on their age. Once the child is three years old, the levels become evaluation-based for them to continue to advance, meaning the swimmers need to meet the standards of each skill in the level before moving onto the next preschool level. Please note, due to COVID-19 restrictions, these lessons require a responsible individual aged 14 years or older in the water to actively assist the child. Classes will run for 30 minutes with 8 classes per session.

 Levels
  • Starfish: ages 4 months - 12 months and must be able to hold their head up on their own
  • Duck: ages 12 months - 24 months
  • Sea Turtle: ages 24 months - 36 months
  1. Sea Otter: ages 3 - 5 years olds who have completed previous level (6 year olds can register if required)
  2. Salamander: ages 3 - 5 years olds who have completed previous level (6 year olds can register if required)
  3. Sunfish: ages 3 - 5 years olds who have completed previous level (6 year olds can register if required)
  4. Crocodile: ages 3 - 5 years olds who have completed previous level (6 year olds can register if required)
  5. Whale: ages 3 - 5 years olds who have completed previous level (6 year olds can register if required)
