Cambria County Library is a Registered Safe Sitter® Teaching Site! Safe Sitter® is a nationally-recognized program developed by pediatrician Dr. Patricia Keener.
Safe Sitter Essentials is our 1-day class designed to prepare students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings or babysitting. Students who complete a Safe Sitter® Essentials course gain confidence and learn how, why, and where injuries can happen so they can be prevented. They are taught infant and child choking rescue. They also learn how a child’s age affects the care they receive, how to prevent problem behavior, and how to run their own babysitting business.
Space is limited and preregistration is required for this 1-day class. Choose which session you’d like to attend using our registration form.
Class tuition and class materials for our Safe Sitter Essentials classes have been generously funded by a Fund for the Future Grant from the Community Foundation of the Alleghenies.
