AQNDERSON — St.Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital is offering a Safe Sitter class on March 27 and one on April 4. Safe Sitter is a medically accurate baby-sitting preparation program designed for boys and girls ages 11 to 13.

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, age-appropriate activities and CPR. 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.
