Safe Sitter® Classes

Designed to prepare students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.

The Instructor-led class is filled with fun games and role-playing exercises. Students even get to use manikins to practice rescue skills like choking rescue and CPR!

Your child can be put on a WAIT LIST for a class that is already full, if needed.

If you need to cancel a reservation, please do so as soon as possible, as these classes are in high demand.
