Courses for our babysitters

First Aid for Children course (6h&8h)

Protecting the little ones!

No matter how careful you are, sometimes things just happen. Especially when it comes to our youngest ones, it is crucial to stay calm and know exactly how to react in case of emergencies. It is thus particularly important to us to offer this course to all of our babysitters free of charge. 

Additional training in accident prevention and first aid for children.

Content: priorities if your baby or child appears to be unconscious; how to establish if they are breathing; actions to be taken in case of an emergency, such as seizures, choking, poisoning or injuries; how to put on bandages as well as child safety checklists.

Organised by: Austrian Red Cross in Styria

  • Our babysitters may take this course at any time free of charge.

Face Painting for Children

Be it a princess, Queen Elsa from Frozen, a pirate, firefighter or a superhero, a cat or a mouse – it is great to turn into your favourite character/animal every once in a while! Face painting really is a highlight at any kids’ party and one of the easiest ways to take any event to the next level. 

In this course we will take the plunge, immerse ourselves into the world of colour (of course we only use high-quality water-based paints which are absolutely harmless to the skin) and turn ourselves into everything a child’s heart desires – because as they say: practice makes perfect…☺

You do not need any previous experience or qualifications to participate in our face painting for children course – just enjoy it, be passionate and have fun!

  • Our event supervisors may participate free of charge!
  • If there are still places available, our active babysitters are welcome to register for this course as well (material fee € 5.00).

We will start at the very beginning, i.e. meeting your future protégés for the first time. Step by step we will then shed light on all important topics from A as in application to B as in basic safety to C as in careful supervision.
