SafeSitter is a medically oriented instructional program designed to train young people for babysitter certification. The curriculum includes units on babysitting as a business, behavior management, child development, safety, injury management, rescue breathing and choking techniques. Safesitter is a two-day, comprehensive class combining classroom lecture with hands on practice to facilitate an effective learning environment for the target audience of primarily young adolescents. The class is taught by professionals and maintains a small teacher/student ratio.
SafeSitter is a popular program in the community and seeks to ensure that graduates will be safe, confident babysitters. In addition, a goal of SafeSitter is to teach information and skills which are not only useful for babysitting, but in other life arenas as well. The Safesitter motto, "Better sitters today, better parents tomorrow" expresses this intent.
Class is limited to a maximum of 8 students who must be at least 11 years of age to participate.
