  • My child is interested in this class but is not 11 yet. Can I register them for the class?

    No. This class is intended for participants over the age of 10. We recognize that maturity and readiness falls on a continuum. Like school districts, we found we needed to establish a minimum age. This policy is based on the collective expertise of numerous developmental pediatric professionals and our 25 years of experience.

  • My child is interested in this class and is between the age of 11 and 14. Can I sign them up for the class?

    Yes, but they must be accompanied by an adult at all times. The supervising adult is encouraged to take the class alongside the child, but will need to have registered for the class themselves to do so. We also offer a CPR and First Aid for Babysitters class which is intended for pre-teens and teens aged 11-15 and teaches similar information for a pediatric population, without adult CPR.
