Babysitting Class

When parents/guardians hire a babysitter they are trusting them with their child's life. A babysitter's main responsibility is to care for a child's needs and keep the child safe. Taking this class will help prepare for these challenges. Safe Sitter is a class set up for youth ages 11-14 where they are able to learn the following skills:

  • 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.

The fee for this Safe Sitter class is $45 and is open to children 11 years of age and older. Class size is limited so early registration is recommended. Look for Babysitting Class in the Upcoming Events section. If you have any questions, please call (608) 775-6870.
