Baby Sitting Lessons at Memorial Hospital

Teenage babysitters can receive comprehensive training from Memorial Hospital this Saturday. The classes are designed to help babysitters prevent injuries from occurring in the first place and handle situations while home alone with younger kids. Safe sitter classes also include instructions for CPR and lessons on how to set up your babysitting business. The next class is scheduled for this Saturday with another at the end of the June on the 29th. Classes run from 9 until 3:30pm and are limited to ten participants so early registration is highly recommended. To register go to memorial.coursestorm.com. Memorial Hospital is a Registered Safe Sitter® Teaching Site. Safe Sitter® aims to reduce the number of avoidable and unintentional deaths among children being cared for by young teen caretakers. The program follows American Heart Association standards for rescue skills and instruction in first aid techniques from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
