Safe Sitter Class

“The class was a fun experience that gave me a lot of info” said one former student. Safe Sitter teaches tools for confidence and success to adolescents who babysit or stay home alone. The course is medically-accurate and designed for adolescents age 11 to 13. Students must be at least 11 years old at the time of the class to participate.  The AYS Professional Development Center (PDC) is excited to offer Safe Sitter® to students as they transition from being supervised, to supervising themselves and others, possibly their very first job! To set up a class at your school, church, scout group, etc. a minimum of 6 students is required. Class fee is $40 per student.

Topics covered in the course include: choking rescue, injury management, preventing problem behavior, safety for the sitter, job screening and orientation, and CPR. Although students are taught current American Heart Association CPR skills, CPR certification cards are not part of the Safe Sitter® course. (Students are welcome to register for a separate AHA Heartsaver First Aid or CPR course if that is preferred.) Students receive a Safe Sitter® completion card for successful completion of the course.
