This is a 1-day class designed to prepare students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they're home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting. The Instructor-led class is filled with fun games and role-playing exercises. Students even get to use mannequins to practice rescue skills like choking rescue and CPR. This course adds basic CPR practice but does NOT lead to certification.
In addition, Safe Sitter teaches young teens life and business skills, so that they know how to be prepared, be responsible, and be considerate whether they are babysitting or doing odd jobs for family, friends, or neighbors.
You'll have fun. You'll learn a lot. And at the end of the day, you can proudly say, "I am a Safe Sitter®!"
This full-day course is $50.00 which includes the Safe Sitter Essentials Student Handbook and completion card. Financial assistance is available for eligible students. Please call 815-599-6707 for more information and to find out if you are eligible.
