Babysitters' & Carers' Education
Babysitters' Education is a short workshop designed to train friends and family to confidently babysit a child with type 1 for a 3-4 hour period. We know that teaching others how to manage type 1 can be a difficult and emotionally draining experience for parents, and our Babysitters' Education can help upskill your network and take the pressure off parents.
Likewise, people in day-care centres, after-school centres, or other carers can lack confidence in managing what is a complex condition.
First, we work with the child's parents to ensure our training manual is specifically tailored to their child's needs, and then we educate the family's nominated babysitters. We deliver the key messages in a simple way, supported by a published resource that can be referred to later.
