Marinwood's Custom Classes

If Marinwood's scheduled Babysitter's Training classes do not meet your specific certification needs or fit into your schedule, you can request a custom class. Custom classes may be scheduled 7 days a week, morning, afternoon, or evening, depending on instructor and room availability. Our custom classes can be taught at our location or we can come to you. We try our best to meet all custom class requests. Prices and class length depend on the number of participants (lower prices for larger groups!), the components taught, and how far the instructor travels.
