Babysitting Seminars at Veterans Memorial Hospital

Veterans Memorial Hospital will sponsor the next Babysitting Seminars Friday, April 7.  This class will be broken down into two different sessions with a morning session held from 9 a.m. to Noon and an afternoon session from 1-4 p.m.  The same information will be taught at both sessions, so students can sign-up for one session or the other. A total of 20 students will be taken in each session.

Both classes will be held in the Large Conference Room located on the lower level of Veterans Memorial Hospital.

Intended participants are individuals 10 years of age and older who are responsible for their own care after school until their parents come home from work, and individuals who care for other children in or outside of their own home. Girls and boys are welcome and encouraged to attend. Topics covered include fire and personal safety, accident prevention and emergency actions, nutritious snacks and basic care of children.

There is a small fee to attend a seminar. Pre-registration is required by April 4. Online registration is available at or may be taken by phone by calling the hospital at 563-568-3411. Contact Corinne Cook, RN, instructor, at 563-568-3411 for more information.
