Safe Sitter

Safe Sitter prepares students in grades 6-8 (ages 11-13) to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.


  • $50 registration fee


No Registration Required

Injuries are the leading cause of death in children up to age 5, so today’s babysitters need to know more than just the basics of childcare. Students learn life-saving skills, such as how to rescue someone who’s choking, and helpful information like what to do if there’s severe weather. The lessons are filled with fun activities and role-playing exercises. Students even get to use manikins to practice choking rescue. Skills taught include: safety skills, childcare skills, first aid and rescue skills, along with life and business skills.

Safe Sitter will be offered from 8 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at Ascension St. Clare’s Hospital Weston. The class will be held in the Creativity conference room.

$50.00 class fee includes Student Handbook.

(No Class if inclement weather and/or DCE Weston/Wausau school district closes)
