Baby-sitting class offered at hospital

ANDERSON — St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital is offering a Safe Sitter class on July 17. Safe Sitter is a medically accurate baby-sitting preparation program designed for boys and girls ages 11 to 13.

This nationally recognized program teaches sitters how to have fun with children, to recognize a medical emergency and to respond appropriately. Safe Sitter participants learn safety and security precautions, such as what to do if a stranger comes to the door, and when and how to call for help. They receive information on child development and age-appropriate activities. They also learn about the business aspects of baby-sitting.

The cost is $40, which includes all the learning materials for the one-day class and a backpack of supplies. Enrollment is limited. The class runs from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Students should bring a sandwich for lunch. Snacks and beverages are provided.
