What to expect at Safe Sitter: 

Parents will bring the Safe Sitter participant to the check-in table inside HealthWorks! Once the child is signed in, they’ll play on the Funtastic Floor until class starts at 9 a.m. Students will learn the basics of child care, first aid, business skills, and CPR* in a fun and interactive class. Students are expected to bring their own lunch. Parents are invited to a graduation ceremony at 3:45 when they will see a sampling of what their child has learned! 

*Note that students will learn infant and child CPR rescue skills, but will not be officially CPR-certified. If you would like for your child to have certification, they will need to take a separate CPR/AED course.
