Audience:  This course is a babysitting training program for boys and girls ages 11-14. 

Course Content: SafeSitter® is a medically oriented instructional program designed to train young people for babysitter certification. The curriculum includes units on babysitting as a business, behavior management, child development, safety, injury management, rescue breathing and choking techniques. Safesitter is a one-day, comprehensive class combining classroom lecture with hands-on practice to facilitate an effective learning environment for the target audience of primarily young adolescents. The class is taught by professionals and maintains a small teacher/student ratio.

SafeSitter® is a popular program in the community and seeks to ensure that graduates will be safe, confident babysitters. Also, a goal of SafeSitter is to teach information and skills which are not only useful for babysitting but in other life arenas as well. The Safesitter® motto, "Better sitters today, better parents tomorrow" expresses this intent.

During the course, participants get hands-on practice in basic lifesaving techniques, so they are prepared to act accordingly in a crisis. Participants must also pass a rigorous practical and written test to show they have mastered the key concepts and have the skills necessary to handle an emergency.
