Susquehanna Health Offers Safe Sitter Course for Tweens and Teens
Date:5/23/2013

Williamsport, PA (PRWEB) May 23, 2013

Susquehanna Health is now a Registered Safe Sitter® Teaching Site, offering a comprehensive babysitting training course for adolescents age 11 and up.

This nationally-recognized program was developed by Indianapolis pediatrician Dr. Patricia Keener after a colleague’s toddler choked to death while in the care of an adult sitter who didn’t know how to provide first aid. Safe Sitter® is a well-rounded youth development program with a medical basis that aims to reduce the number of avoidable and unintentional deaths among children being cared for by young teen babysitters. The program follows American Heart Association standards for rescue skills as well as instruction in first aid techniques from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Students who complete the Safe Sitter® program gain confidence and learn how, why and where injuries can happen so they can be prevented. The course also covers infant and child choking rescue and CPR, and trains participants to care for a child based on their age, prevent problem behavior, run their own babysitting business, and discusses issues of cellphone and online safety.

To graduate from the Safe Sitter® course and receive a completion card, students must pass a rigorous practical and written test that indicates their mastery of key concepts and life and safety skills. Graduates are able to handle emergencies when caring for younger children and are equally equipped with the tools needed to safely stay home alone. Over 600,000 graduates have completed the course in hundreds of cities across the country.
