Safe Sitter® Essentials
Safe Sitter® Essentials is a 1-day class designed to prepare students to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.
Do you feel ready to stay home alone, watch your brothers and sisters while your parents are gone, or babysit for younger children? Then maybe it’s time for Safe Sitter®. Safe Sitter® is for young teens who are ready to learn the skills they need to care for themselves and younger children.
