Founded in 1980, Safe Sitter® is the only national nonprofit training program exclusively devoted to preparing young teens to be safe in unsupervised settings, whether babysitting, sibling sit-ting or home alone. The Safe Sitter® curriculum is designed ex-clusively for young teens in grades 6 – 8, and covers the following areas: safety skills, child care skills, first aid & rescue skills, and life & business skills. Safe Sitter® courses are instructor-led and interactive, with hands-on demonstrations and skills practice using soft-bodied dolls and medical manikins.

At Safe Sitter® you will learn how to:

  • Rescue a choking child or infant plus ways to prevent choking in the first place.
  • Evaluate an injury to determine how to handle it including how to get help.
  • Prevent problem behavior plus how to manage problem behavior situations.
  • Keep yourself safe in threatening situations from power failures to prowlers.
  • Care for a child’s basic needs including feeding, entertaining, and toileting.
  • Establish your own babysitting business.

MCHD’s Safe Sitter Course now includes American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR/AED Certification!
