SafeSitter Classes FREE for Ages 11-13

Young teens need training in first aid, indoor and outdoor safety, and how to handle household emergencies before they are adequately prepared to stay home alone or watch younger siblings. In addition, there is no safe amount of time to leave a child with a caregiver of any age who has not been trained in airway rescue and how to handle life threatening emergencies. Safe Sitter® graduates are prepared with the knowledge they need to prevent problems and handle unexpected emergencies. Safe Sitter® is a medically accurate babysitting preparation program designed for 11 to 13 year olds. The competency-based, interactive curriculum was written by a pediatrician and teaches safe and nurturing child care techniques.

This program is free and pre-registration is required! Please arrive at 8:30 and bring a sack lunch. Morning and afternoon snacks and refreshments will be provided. Parents/Guardians are welcome to come at 2:30 for the closing ceremony.

Location: Fourth floor Carol Jo Vecchie Building, Conf. Rm. C/D. Please ask at lobby desk for directions.
