Safe Sitter Classes at Northport Medical Center in July
The DCH Health System will help young teens be better babysitters through Safe Sitter classes offered in July at Northport Medical Center.
Safe Sitter, a medically accurate program taught by trained instructors, provides boys and girls 11 to 13 years old with special babysitting skills, including how to prevent accidents and how to handle emergencies when caring for younger children. During the course, students get hands-on practice in basic lifesaving techniques to help them be prepared in a crisis.
Safe Sitter classes at Northport Medical Center will be Wednesday, July 10, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Thursday, July 11, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Students will need to attend both days.
Participants must register in advance. Registration is limited to 10, and there is a $45 fee, to be paid by credit card only. Participants should bring a sack lunch for Wednesday. Drinks will be provided.
