About Safe Sitter®  

Safe Sitter® classes prepare students in grades 6-12 to be safe when they're home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting. Students learn life-saving skills such as how to rescue someone who's choking, and helpful information like what to do if there's severe weather. The lessons are filled with fun activities and role-playing exercises. Students even get to use CPR manikins to practice choking rescue!

Skills Your Child Will Learn 

  • Safety Skills: Students learn how to prevent unsafe situations and what to do when faced with dangers such as power failures or weather emergencies. (Indoor safety, outdoor safety, online safety, and personal safety).  
  • Child Care Skills: Students learn tips to manage behavior that will help them stay in control of themselves and the children in their care. Students also learn the ages and stages of child development, as well as practice diapering. (Child development, child care routines, and behavior management).  
  • First Aid & Rescue Skills: Learning a skill like choking rescue is often students' favorite part of the class. Students also learn a system to help them assess and respond to injuries and illness. (Injury prevention and injury management). CPR is an optional component.*  
  • Life & Business Skills: The ability to screen jobs, discuss fees, and greet employers will set students up for success now and in the future. Students practice these skills through various role plays
