Safe Sitter® Program
Safe Sitter® courses provide young teens (ages 11-17) life and safety skills needed for babysitting.
Participants will learn how to:
- Perform child and infant CPR techniques
- Rescue a child or infant who is choking
- Care for children of all ages
- Prevent problem behavior
- Prevent possible injury and decide on the seriousness if someone is injured
To become a Safe Sitter®, students must pass a written and practical exam. Parents and friends are invited to attend the graduation ceremony to recognize the Safe Sitters® at the end of the day.
