SOUTHERN INDIANA

YMCA offering Safe Sitter program

The YMCA of Southern Indiana has become a registered Safe Sitter teaching site and now offers the comprehensive baby-sitting training program for young adolescents ages 11 to 15. Graduates are able to handle emergencies when caring for younger children and are equally equipped with the tools needed to stay home alone safely. 

The first Safe Sitter course will be from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Floyd County YMCA branch.

Students are taught infant and child choking rescue and CPR during the six-hour curriculum. They also learn how a child’s age affects how to care for them, how to prevent problem behavior, how to run their own baby-sitting business as well as issues of online and cell phone 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. 

For more information about the Safe Sitter program at the YMCA of Southern Indiana, contact Crystal Hardin at 812- 283-9622 ext. 224 or email at chardin@ymcasi.org.
