Description

Better baby sitters today make better parents tomorrow. Designed by a pediatrician, this two-day class teaches students in grades 6-8 (must have completed 5th grade) 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 is severe weather.  The lessons are filled with fun activities and role-playing exercises.  Students even get to use manikins to practice CPR and choking rescue! 

Participants receive a certificate of completion.

Students are asked to bring their own lunch and beverages, because this is an all day class.

Safe Sitter® Course Content:

  • 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.

Bring a lunch each day.  Refrigeration is available.

This class meets at Grace Health OB/Gyn, lower level, 181 Emmett St., Battle Creek.
