Safe Sitter® classes are designed to train girls and boys, in grades 6 through 8, to be confident babysitters. The Safe Sitter program is a medically accurate program that teaches young adolescents how to handle emergencies when caring for young children.
Thousands of young adolescents across the country have been trained by Safe Sitter to handle life-threatening emergencies. During the course, students will get hands-on practice in basic lifesaving techniques so they are prepared to act in a crisis.
Safe Sitters also receive helpful tips to make them more confident caregivers. They learn safety precautions, how to understand children of different ages, and even the business of babysitting.
To successfully complete the Safe Sitter program, students must pass a practical and written test to show that they have mastered the key concepts and have the skills necessary to handle an emergency.
The cost of the class is $49.50; a limited number of scholarships are available based on financial need. Preregistration is required and payment must be received 7 days in advance to confirm class spot.
