South Peninsula Hospital provides Safe Sitter® certification courses throughout the year during school district breaks or holidays. We teach the Safe Sitter® Essentials Course with CPR and Choking Rescue.  Students even practice infant and child CPR and choking rescue on training manikins!

Do you feel ready to stay home alone, watch your brothers and sisters while your parents are gone, or babysit for younger children? Then maybe it’s time for Safe Sitter®. Safe Sitter® is for young teens in grades 6-8 who are ready to learn the skills they need to care for themselves and younger children.

In addition, Safe Sitter® teaches young teens life and business skills, so that they know how to be prepared, be responsible, and be considerate whether they are babysitting or doing odd jobs for family, friends, or neighbors.

You’ll have fun. You’ll learn a lot. And at the end of the day, you can proudly say, “I am a Safe Sitter®!”

The next Safe Sitter course at South Peninsula Hospital is scheduled for August 9th, 2019, click here for more info.
