Safe Sitter Program with Akron Children’s Hospital

The Akron Children’s Hospital Safe Sitter® program prepares students ages 11-13 to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting. Students learn life-saving skills such as how to rescue someone who’s choking, and helpful information like what to do if there’s severe weather. The lessons are filled with fun activities and role-playing exercises.

Safety Skills: Students learn how to prevent unsafe situations and what to do when faced with dangers such as power failures or weather emergencies.

Child Care Skills: Students learn tips to manage behavior that will help them stay in control of themselves and the children in their care. Students also learn the ages and stages of child development and practice diapering.

First Aid & Rescue Skills: Learning skills such as choking rescue is often students’ favorite part of the class. Students also learn a system to help them assess and respond to injuries and illnesses. Due to the virtual format, the January 18, 2021 class does not teach CPR.

Life & Business Skills: The ability to screen jobs, discuss fees, and greet employers will set students up for success now and in the future. Students practice these skills through various role plays.

Date: Monday, January 18, 2021 – 9:00 a.m-3:45 p.m.
Cost: $35
Format: Virtual (supplies will be mailed to participants)
