Safe Sitter with CPR Instruction (Day 2)

For boys and girls grades 6-8, this two-day class will teach sitters how to handle emergencies when caring for younger children.

The goal of the program is to reduce the number of accidental and preventable deaths among children being cared for by babysitters. Young children cannot always communicate their needs or protect themselves. The babysitter must be able to handle whatever situation arises.

During the course, students are given hands-on practice in basic life-saving techniques so they are prepared to act in a crisis. Instructors also provide tips to make sitters more confident caregivers. They teach safety and security precautions, such as what to do if a stranger comes to the door and when and how to call for help, provide information on child development and suggest age-appropriate activities to entertain children. The program also teaches sitters about the business aspects of babysitting.

Fee: FREE
Lunch and book are included.
