let me congratulate you and
your staff for the fine work you have done in creating this
much overdue course for babysitters. As a father with two school
age children in search for consistent and competent child care,
I found your site to provide everything a parent would be looking
for in a child care specialist.
after reviewing your online course that you have taken the term
"babysitter" and refined it to what it should have
always been. I was very impressed with the depth you have gone
in assuring that anyone that passes your course will have all
the tools and information necessary to perform the task of safe
and competent child care. The checklist concept is outstanding,
leaving little if anything to chance. It also tells me as a
parent that anyone approaching me in such a well organzied manner
will be well prepared to safeguard my children in my absence.
and I have used 'Professional Babysitting' agencies before and
never have they approached the subjects in such an organized
fashion. I found that they left too much of the responsibility
to inform them of everything they needed to know that inevitably
something would get forgotten.
course assures that your graduates will seek all the information
needed and remind parents of special needs, contact information,
medical releases, allergies, discipline and so many other things
I cannot list them all here.

this be any better?! As a mom of a precocious two year

babysitting site is terrific. I only wish my daughter
had had this training when she was sitting."
really impressed. I have a nine-year-old son and I would

him. Take the course. You'll learn a lot."

clever and very thorough. To be honest, it even taught
me something: I had never considered popcorn as a choking danger
for small children, even though I know that I had trouble swallowing
it when I was a kid..."

classes are well organized, written in language easy
to understand, and filled with visuals that present real, everyday
situations that young babysitters come up against everyday.
a wonderful Girl's World we live in on the Internet -- I wish
I'd had this great resource when I was a young girl and babysitting
my little brother! I took the babysitting class and I not only
learned a lot about the rights and wrongs of babysitting, but
I had fun doing it. Keep up the good work, A Girl's World."
