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.



We are grateful to the Kiwanis Club of Brandon for providing funding, thus, ensuring there is no cost to attend.


 Class dates are dependent on enrollment and availability of the instructors. In the past, we have offered classes on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays and the course ran for five weeks with classes. 


As of Fall 2012, the course was switched to three weeks.  In the fall following Thanksgiving weekend, classes are on Tuesdays and Thursdays and in the spring (March/April) on Mondays and Wednesdays.   Class times are in the evenings from 7:00 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
