The next round of SAFE SITTER classes is coming up in June at St. Vincent Evansville. SAFE SITTER is a medically accurate, hands-on class that teaches boys and girls ages 11 to 13 how to handle emergencies when caring for children. Young children cannot always communicate their needs or protect themselves. The babysitter must be able to handle whatever situation arises. SAFE SITTERS learn: what to do when a child chokes, CPR, how to call for emergency help, entertaining children and keeping them safe, babysitting business skills, and basic childcare skills like diapering and feeding.
Class dates are:
Safe Sitter classes are available through St. Vincent Outreach Services. A fee of $60 covers the one-day program, student manual, messenger bag and supplies.

Class size is limited. Registration is required and may be done through St. Vincent Outreach Services at (812) 485-5607.
