Safe Sitters are not just highly-qualified babysitters. They're young business owners with practical life and safety skills-many already with an eye toward future
endeavors! Because, in addition to being knowledgeable about safe childcare (including first aid, choking child rescue and CPR), Safe Sitters:
* gain early experience being business owners. Students learn beginning business skills such as how to market themselves as qualified babysitters, how to assess job requirements and decide whether or not to take a job, how to negotiate an hourly rate, and how to deliver a proper handshake.
*get inspired about future career options. The skills learned are the first rung of many career ladders, including youth development, child care, medicine and nursing.
*feel comfortable staying home alone (and perhaps taking care of their younger siblings while parents are away) because they've learned about personal safety
and what to do in an emergency.
*Course Cost: $60.00 (Includes AHA CPR & First Aid Card for Child/Infant)
*Duration: 12.5 Hours (Two 6.25 hour classes) Student must attend both classes
*Course Age Requirement: Minimum of 11 years old.
CLASS WILL BE HELD FEBRUARY 20 & 21 AT HURLEY MIDDLE SCHOOL 8am-2:30pm both days.
