Safe Sitter

tweensWe are currently evaluating each of our program components, including Safe Sitter.  Please check back with us in the Spring for updates regarding our Safe Sitter Class opportunities.

CHLOE  is committed to providing valuable life skill building  opportunities in our community. We recognize the unparalleled importance of equipping young baby sitters to provide excellent care for young children. CHLOE offers nationally known Safe Sitter® course for pre-teens and teens who desire to become excellent babysitters. (ages 11 – 16)

Young teens need training in first aid, indoor and outdoor safety, and how to handle household emergencies before they are adequately prepared to stay home alone or watch younger siblings. In addition, there is no safe amount of time to leave a child with a caregiver of any age who has not been trained in airway rescue and how to handle life threatening emergencies. Safe Sitter® graduates are prepared with the knowledge they need to prevent problems and handle unexpected emergencies.
