Safe@Home by Safe Sitter® is a program designed for students in grades 4-6 to prepare them to be safe when they are home alone.

The program is designed to enable any adult that enjoys teaching preteens to facilitate an introductory level program to prepare students to care for themselves when parents are away for short periods of time.

Safe@Home is a 90-minute program that teaches students how to practice safe habits, how to prevent unsafe situations, and what to do when faced with dangers such as power failures or weather emergencies.

Students are also introduced to the Safe Sitter® First Aid Chart and learn a system to help them assess and respond to injuries and illnesses.

A Safe@Home student booklet is required for each student.

Safe Sitter® teaches young teens (11-14) grades 6-8, everything they need to know 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.  

This program is for boys and girls ages 11 - 14. They will learn choking rescue skills, the business of babysitting, how to prevent problematic behaviors, injury management and more!

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.

The cost of the course includes a drawstring bag, The Official Safe Sitter® Babysitter’s Handbook with Completion Card, Important Numbers Note Pad, Bandage Dispenser, and LED Flashlight.

Class will be cancelled if less than 4 students are registered.
