I feel prepared to start babysitting! The videos, narrations and lessons make me feel well prepared to start babysitting. It covered a lot of things I would be worried about and I am glad it went over first aid such as CPR. I am happy it told me about how to start babysitting like starting my siblings which I will definitely start with! I can’t wait to start babysitting other kids!


I thought it was amazing! I learned CPR, how to handle emergency situations, And so much more fun stuff! I loved how interactive it was and how I could do it at my own pace! This is worth the money I highly recommend it. Anyone who has little to no experience will find this very helpful and easy to follow. It may seem like a lot at first, but when you get into it you will love it and look forward to your babysitting job! This was such an amazing experience.


Loved it! This course was so much fun! I really enjoyed the hands-on video examples and the narrator options. It made learning and understanding the tasks much easier. The quizzes, I absolutely love that every quiz was in its very own section/ theme. It made the overall understanding of the questions in the quizzes crazy simple.


Easy and Efficient Menard Babysitting course is very thorough and easy to understand. They present you different methods of learning; visually, audibly or just through reading. Lessons are overall short and simple but they cover all information and topics you need to understand in order to successfully babysit. The quizzes are also great learning experiences to help you remember information and prepare you for the assessment at the very end.


Great training with the mix of videos and workbook. This training program as provided me with the skills to start baby sitting with confidence.
