Eight students participated in the first ever Safe Sitter certification program offered here on campus.
Safe Sitter is designed to prepare middle school students 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.
Four main skills building areas are covered which are safety skills, child care skills, first aid & rescue skills, and life & business skills.
At the end of the program students are first-aid trained and can turn their new found skills into a business for themselves to baby sit for community or family members. Anatomy teacher Jamie Adams, RN became certified to teach the program and plans to offer it once a semester.
“The new CPR dolls we have now will be helpful in future trainings we can offer. Also, in the last few weeks students let me know they had used what they learned over the summer. That’s what we want, kids learning from it and using it.”
