Safe Sitter® Babysitting Course to be offered over Winter Break
Calling all future babysitters! Buchanan County Health Center will be holding a Safe Sitter® class for 11 to 14 year olds on Thursday, December 29th. The class will be held from 8am to 3pm in the Community Room of the Independence Public Library. The cost to attend is $40, which includes one day of training, a Safe Sitter® manual, and certification card.
During this course, participants will learn safe and nurturing childcare techniques, behavior management skills, and how to handle emergencies when caring for children. Students will learn infant and child CPR and choking child rescue.
Limited to the first 15 registrants, this program is made possible thanks to a generous gift from the Buchanan County Health Center Auxiliary. Financial assistance is available for families unable to afford class fees. For more information, or to RSVP, contact the Therapy & Wellness Center at (319) 332-0850.
