The Town of Neepawa is once again putting on a course to teach young adults the ins and outs of babysitting. The course, which will take place on Saturday, July 29 at the town office building 275 Hamilton Street, is aimed at children aged 11 to 15 years.

“It’s a really good experience for them,” says Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) of the Town of Neepawa, Colleen Synchyshyn. She goes on to say that the course has been very popular in the past, and hopes to see a good turnout for it again this year.
“This isn’t the first one we’ve hosted; we’ve actually had a few of these before,” she notes. “So, based on requests and people wondering if we were going to have another one, we just decided that we needed to take the opportunity.”
The course costs $50 per participant, and runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Participants will need to bring their own bagged lunch, snacks, water bottle and realistic doll, as well as a pen or pencil and notepad. To register, visit
