Safe Sitter Babysitting Class for Students in 6th to 8th Grades Back To List

The goal of Safe Sitter® is to reduce the number of avoidable and unintentional deaths among children being cared for by babysitters. Over 650,000 adolescent babysitters across the country have been trained by Safe Sitter® to handle life threatening emergencies.

All information is taught by trained Safe Sitter® instructors. During the course, students will receive hands-on practice in basic lifesaving techniques so they are prepared to act in a crisis.

In addition they will learn skills in safety, child care, rescue and life & business and tips that will make them more confident caregivers.

To successfully complete the Safe Sitter® program, students must pass a rigorous practical and written test to show that they have mastered the key concepts and have the skills necessary to handle an emergency.

The class will be held on Friday, June 23, 2017 at the Gnaden Huetten campus from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $36 and includes all resource materials and supplies, including the student handbook, a Safe Sitter® drawstring bag, Bandage dispenser, LED flashlight, important information notepad, completion card, snacks and lunch.

Space is limited and registration and pre-payment are required. To register your son or daughter for the Safe Sitter® course, call community education at Blue Mountain Health System at 610-377-7070 or email Marylou McGeehan at mmcgeehan@blmtn.org
