SAFE SITTER® COURSE NOW BEING OFFERED
Students Learn Babysitting Basics & More
The Jurupa Valley Adopt a Family Health and Safety Program is now offering Safe Sitter® courses for young teens 11-14. Our first class will be held on March 5th at the Jurupa Valley Adopt a Family office. This class is limited to 7 participants and is expected to fill early.
Over 650,000 adolescent babysitters have graduated from the medically-accurate program which instills students with confidence as they learn how, why and where injuries can happen so they can be prevented. The cost of the course is $30, includes lunch and CPR certification will be offered at the end of the class.
The up-to-date curriculum provides hands-on practice in lifesaving techniques designed to prepare babysitters to act in an emergency. Babysitters also receive instruction on how a child’s age affects how to care for them, how to prevent problem behavior and how to run their own babysitting business. They also learn basic first aid as well as how to perform infant and child choking rescue. They even learn CPR.
To graduate from the Safe Sitter® course and receive a completion card, students must pass a rigorous practical and written test that indicates their mastery of key concepts and life and safety skills.
