Safe Sitter Courses at The J

Designed to prepare students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.

Safety Skills

Students learn how to prevent unsafe situations and what to do when faced with dangers such as power failures or weather emergencies.

First Aid + Rescue Skills

Learning skills such as choking rescue and CPR* is often students’ favorite part of the class. Students also learn a system to help them assess and respond to injuries and illnesses.

*Class does not provide a CPR certification, but does familiarize students with basic CPR skills

Child Care Skills

Students learn to prevent and manage problem behavior that will help them stay in control of themselves and the children in their care. Students also learn the ages and stages of child development, as well as practice diapering.

Life + Business Skills

The ability to screen jobs, discuss fees, and greet employers will set students up for success now and in the future. Students practice these skills through various role plays.
