Ingrid Hardy Emergency Training is not providing this course due to COVID-19 at the moment.
This course is recommended for those children who are 11 -15 years old who want to be good babysitters. Please use the registration form or contact me at with the information. Please inform me if your child has a learning disability or allergies during the registration process.
Cost is $56.50 which includes tax, manual, certificate and a few hand outs. Pay Pal button is set up at the bottom of the page if you want to pay with a credit card or debit. You do not have to join Pay Pal in order to use it.
This course starts at 8:30 A.M. and ends between 4 PM. Since this course is actually longer than the normal school hours, please prepare your child for a long day. The course is very informative and interactive. Your child is expected to participate in order to meet the course requirement.
The training is held at 4034 Bath Road, at Collins Bay across from Tim Horton's and Ultramar gas station. Please see the map at the bottom of this page. Please enter from the east side of the building and follow my signs in order to find the training room.
Please come in the training room with your child in order to fill out a form giving me the required information I need especially the day time phone number just in case an emergency occurred during the course. An adult needs to sign in with the child. At the end of the session, please wait just outside the training room and then you are required to sign out your child so that I know your child left safely with you. If your child is allowed to go home on his/her own, this can be indicated on the form.
Please ensure that your child has many snacks, drinks as well as a lunch pack since these items will NOT be provided. The Legion has a restaurant as well.
Your child is required to bring a doll or a stuffed animal to the course.
All participants need to wear pants (or shorts depending on the weather).
Due to COVID-19, all participants are expected to provide his/her own face mask which covers the nose and mouth during the course. In order to keep my fee down, I expect parents to provide their child 10 non-latex gloves for the day as well as a bottle of hand sanitizer for the child's own use. Before your child eats or uses the bathroom, your child is expected to take off the gloves, wash the hands and use a new set of gloves.
You and your child are expected to wear your face masks and gloves before entering the premises.
Within the last 2 weeks prior to the date of the course, please do NOT let your child attend my course if your child or anyone your child lives with has traveled outside of the Frontenac, Lennox and Addington, Hastings, Prince Edward, Leeds and Greville counties, North and South Frontenac counties; your child or anyone your child lives with has been in COVID high risk areas or exposed to someone who was in high risk areas; your child or someone your child lives with has COVID or contagious or has a fever; your child or someone your child lives with had contact with anyone who had COVID-19; or your child has problems breathing. If one of the adults your child lives with cared for someone who had COVID, please get everyone who lives in your child's home tested a couple of days prior the course date to ensure that the home and your child are COVID safe. Please print the negative result of the child's test and send it to my e-mail address the day before the course.
Please assist your child with the self assessment tool. If your child is deemed COVID safe, please print out the page which indicates that your child is safe, sign it and hand in that page to me. This self assessment tool needs to be done just before the course but on the same day of the course. https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/ . Please be responsible and considerate by not spreading COVID-19. Thank you.
At the bottom of this page, there is a Pay Pal button you can use in order to pay me with a credit card or debit. You do not have to join Pay Pal to use this service. There is also a map to indicate where the training will take place. Please use the Contact Box at the bottom of this page to give me the necessary information I need. Thank you.
