Babysitter's Benefit | FaithLife Financial

Babysitter’s Benefit

At FaithLife Financial, we’re all for giving our teens and pre-teens the power to earn a bit of spending money. But with power comes responsibility – especially when it comes to caring for little ones. That’s why we’re making it easy to learn the tricks of the (babysitting) trade. 

What is the Babysitter’s Benefit?  

The Babysitter’s Benefit gives 11-15 year-olds the opportunity to acquire caregiving skills through an accredited* Canadian Babysitting course. From dealing with difficult behaviours and caring for a sick child, to preparing healthy snacks and changing diapers, to bedtime routines and tips for handling emergencies, teens or pre-teens will be prepared to care for babies and young children in a variety of situations.   

When a member completes an accredited Canadian course, they can apply for reimbursement of up to $50.
