Safe Sitter® (www.safesitter.org)
is a medically accurate program that teaches 11 to 15
year-olds how to be safe, nurturing babysitters.
The goal of the Safe Sitter® program is to reduce the
number of avoidable and unintentional deaths among
children being cared for by babysitters.
Students get hands-on
practice in lifesaving techniques so they are prepared
to act in a crisis. They learn safety and security
precautions, such as what to do if a stranger comes to
the door. They learn basic child development as
well as the business aspects of babysitting.
The fee for the two
day class is $50.00. Scholarships in the amount of
$15.00 are available upon request. For information
and registration for your son, daughter, OR your
babysitter, call 743-5933x380. Online
registration may done via our website at www.wmhcc.org. The next
class is scheduled for July 10 and 13, 2009.
