Do you have a child that's interested in babysitting and caring for their brothers & sisters or other children?  Smart Sitter class can help them become better prepared for this experience.

Our Smart Sitter Class is a FREE educational program designed for boys and girls 10 years of age or older who want to learn how to be excellent babysitters and shows parents that this is a responsibility they take very seriously.  This class is for not only for beginning babysitters but also for those young people who have already done a little babysitting. 

 Class members will learn:

  • Responsibilities of a babysitter
  • Basic childcare for all ages
  • Childhood development  
  • How to handle common every day accidents and emergencies
  • Guidelines for safe play
  • Practice choking techniques for infants and children and review "hands only" CPR techniques. 

The class begins with “checking in” from 8:30-8:45 am and class goes until 3:00 pm.  For the class, each child needs to bring with them for the class:

  • Sack lunch and beverage for the lunch break
  • A doll or stuffed animal that is 14-16 inches long for practicing burping & holding positions, diapering and swaddling infants. 

On the day of class, we have the American Heart Association’s "Friends & Family CPR" booklet available to purchase for $3.00.  This booklet is totally optional and not required to purchase for the class.
