  • How to feed, diaper, dress, and play with children and babies
  • How to recognize and prevent unsafe situations, make safe choices and promote safe behaviours
  • The business of babysitting
  • First Aid, including when to call 911, choking, anaphylaxis, poisoning, insect stings, minor wounds, and unconsciousness
