Safe Sitter Babysitting Classes
Upcoming Class Dates: May 25-26 at Perkins Public Library June 20-21 at PCYS Offices July 19-20 at PCYS Offices
PCYS is honored to be able to continue the amazing Safe Sitter babysitting training course thanks to the continuous community support of Stillwater Medical Center.
Safe Sitter is designed to prepare students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.
Students will learn:
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.
