About the program
Safe Sitter® courses provide young teens (grades 6-8) with life and safety skills needed for babysitting. The Instructor-led class is filled with fun games and role-playing exercises. Students even use manikins to practice rescue skills like choking and CPR.
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
