Sign-ups for baby-sitting course

The Andona Society is once again offering its popular baby-sitting course for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders in Andover who want to prepare to be mother’s helpers and baby sitters.

Topics for the four-week course include: First Aid, Child Development, Safety, and Baby-sitting as a Business. Fun, hands-on activities will provide practical experience.

The class meets either Tuesdays starting Oct. 1 from 6:30 to 7:50 p.m. at West Parish Church or Thursdays starting Oct. 3 from 6:30 to 7:50 p.m. at Marland Place.

Registration forms are available under the Events section on the Andona website, www.andona.org. They will be accepted on a first-come basis, with class sizes limited to 30 students. Registrations for eighth-graders received before Sept. 20 will be given preference. Sign-ups close on Sept. 24.
