Center for Childhood Safety has become a Registered Safe

Sitter® Teaching Site!  Safe Sitter® is designed to prepare

students to be safe when they’re home alone,

watching younger siblings, or babysitting. This Instructor-led

class is filled with fun games and role-playing exercises.  

 

Safe Sitter® teaches young teens how to practice important

safety skills, how to handle emergencies, and how to treat

illnesses and injuries. In addition, students learn important

business skills, like how to screen jobs, set a wage, and work

with employers.

Students 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.

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.

First Aid & Rescue Skills: Learning skills such as choking rescue and CPR is often students’ favorite part of the class. Students also learn a system to help them assess and respond to injuries and illnesses. 

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.
