Our Babysitting course has been educating the babysitters in Brandon for over 20 years. Our program is offered twice a year in the spring and fall.

Class dates are dependent on enrollment and availability of the instructors. 

The course runs for three weeks with two classes a week (either Tuesdays and Thursdays or Mondays and Wednesdays). Class times are in the evenings from 6:45 to 8:30 and take place in the Training Room at the #1 Fire Hall, 120 – 19th Street North. The last class of each course is a graduation ceremony for all successful students.

Each week the students are introduced to new related information including:

  • Fire Prevention/Fire Safety
  • 911 Information
  • Basic First Aid
  • Child Behaviour/Play Activities
  • Basic Child Care


  • must be 12 years old or older by June 30th for the spring course or December 31st for the fall course
  • must have an interest in babysitting
  • must be able to attend a minimum of 4 of the 5 classes
