Safe Sitter Accredited Program for Young Adolescents

Schliemann Center for Women again hosts the 2-day Safe Sitter Program, Wed. June 15 and 16, 9 am-3pm. Safe Sitter is a medically accurate program that teaches young adolescents how to handle emergencies when caring for children. The course provides hands-on practice in lifesaving techniques to young teens who are home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting so they are equipped with the skills and confidence to act in an emergency. They learn basic first aid and infant and child choking rescue and CPR. Students also receive instruction on how a child’s age affects how to care for them, how to prevent problem behavior, and how to run their own babysitting business.

Due to covid, class capacity is limited. Masks required and social distancing strictly observed. Registration required, call 870-508-2345.
