Safe Sitter for Scout Troops
This class 1-day class prepares Scouts in grades 6-8 to be safe when watching younger siblings or babysitting.
Please contact class coordinator to set up a mutual time for Scout Troop. We are able to accommodate 7 Scouts per session. For larger troops, consecutive classes may be scheduled.
The fee is $30 per Scout & includes Safe Sitter resource book and class materials.
This instructor-led class is filled with fun games and roll playing exercises.
- Safety Skills - Students lean 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.
Please note that while Infant & Child CPR and Choking are taught in this one day condensed class, the Safe Sitter program does not provide testing for or certification in CPR.
