The Women’s Club of Madison reminds the Community that its Annual Babysitting Seminar will be held in March. Classes are the Wednesday’s in March; March 6, 13, 20 & 27 @ the Polson Middle School from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM. This how-to babysitting class is for boys and girls ages 11 to 13. Students must attend all classes to receive a certificate. The Beach & Recreation Department administratively coordinates the registration of the students and a portion of the class fee is given to the Women’s Club for their programs in the community. This awarding winning program would not be possible without the assistance of many volunteers and several organizations in Town! (Faces Make Places!)

Dr. Cheryl Anderson; Pediatrician will speak on the first evening (3/6) and volunteer parents will bring their babies to diaper and older children to interview.

The second evening (3/13) the Madison Police Department will send Detective Phil Rosati to speak to the group on wise safety decisions to make for the children and themselves.

The third evening (3/20) the Fire Marshal’s office shows a video and addresses the class on fire dangers.

The last evening (3/27) the Ms. Patti Palaia; CPR Coordinator & Paramedic from the Madison Ambulance Association demonstrates issues of medical concern that the babysitters should become aware of. The parents of the students are invited to return to the class that last evening as their children receive their certificates.

The Women’s Club of Madison extends a big THANK YOU to the FACES that MAKE PLACES in our community!

Without the support and many volunteer hours to this program, it would not be possible to offer such an excellent educational opportunity to our students in the Town. To register go to www.madisonct.org, or in person at the Town Campus. Beach & Recreation Department (203) 245- 5623.

Weather vs Babysitting Seminar! I just want to THANK everyone for the great response to the Babysitting Seminar. We have 40 kids enrolled with a wait-list of 13. Next year I will try to have the class max moved up to 50. We run the class every year in the month of March. I am also watching the weather forecast very closely and if the Polson School cancels after school activities we will have to postpone the first class. Let's hope Mother Nature is just teasing me a bit! Safety first! On behalf of the Women's Club; thank you for the wonderful response and I look forward to sharing a great class experience with all of you!

The last evening of the Babysitting Seminar is tomorrow evening from 6:30-8:00 PM. Thank you to Madison Ambulance who is our speaker on emergencies and what to do! I repeat myself and say great bunch of kids! Parents if you are following the story, you are invited back to watch your child receive their certificate at 7:45 PM! Thank you from all members of the Women's Club for sending us such a great group of youth!
