Some say it takes a village to raise a child…
You could teach your child what they need to know about staying home alone.
But let’s face it. Sometimes it’s easier to hear something from someone else.
Plus, during the course your child will be learning first aid skills. Although you learned these skills in the last first aid course you took. You may not feel comfortable teaching them to your child. Or, quite frankly have the time.
After taking this course, your child will be ready to discuss with you the logistics of them staying home alone.
We make it easier to have those conversations. To ease the transition to the next stage of independence.
For both of you.

Marina Gabor AKA Mrs. G
Marina took her Babysitting course at the High River library when she was 11. Since then, she has babysat more children than she can count. And is raising three kids of her own.
After teaching all kinds of subjects to students of all ages, she finally settled into teaching young people how to take care of themselves and others.
She believes that children are worth investing in and have potential to make a real difference.
Marina is like no other educator in the industry. Her teaching method gets kids thinking about what is possible. And shows them how showing up responsibly will give them a brighter future.
Her three kids have been through her courses more times than they care to admit. But she practices what she preaches and her daughters are a testament to that. She’s here to help your child build confidence and develop skills that will help them take care of themselves and others.
