Join the August SafeSitter® Class 

Sign up for the upcoming August Safe Sitter® Class offered by Stephens Memorial Hospital (SMH)!  The class will be held on Friday, August 12th from 8:00am to 3:00pm and Monday, August 15th from 8:00am to 3:30pm in the Harper Conference Center at SMH.  Shannon Nassa, RN, a Family Birthplace nurse, will teach the course.

The program is a medically accurate, hands-on instructional program designed for young adolescents that teaches boys and girls how to handle emergencies when caring for children.  The goal of the Safe Sitter® is to reduce the number of avoidable and unintentional deaths among children being cared for by babysitters.

Stephens Memorial Hospital has four Safe Sitter Certified instructors that offer classes during school vacations.  Safe Sitters learn: Infant & child CPR, choking procedure, safety for the sitter, how to call for emergency help, babysitting business skills, basic child care skills, and how to entertain children and keep them safe.  The classes are geared for 11 - 13 year olds. 

The fee for the two day class is $50.00.  A Scholarship in the amount of $15.00 is available upon request.  For information and registration for your son, daughter, OR your babysitter, call 743-1562 X6951.   Online registration may be done via the Stephens Memorial Hospital website at  Classes are scheduled during school breaks and the summer.  Registration is open now for the course August class.
