Baylor Hospital: Safe Sitter Program (full course description)

The Safe Sitter program is a medically accurate program that teaches young adolescents how to handle emergencies when caring for younger children.  The goal of Safe Sitter is to reduce the number of accidental and preventable deaths among children in a babysitter’s care. During the course, students get hands-on practice in basic lifesaving techniques so they are prepared to act in a crisis.  Participants will also receive helpful tips to make them more confident caregivers. They learn safety precautions and how to understand and deal with children of different ages. Students will also learn about the business aspects of babysitting. To successfully complete the Safe Sitter program, students must pass a rigorous practical and written test to show that they have mastered the key concepts and have the skills necessary to handle an emergency. A great class if you are around younger children or you want to get an introduction to handling medical emergencies.
