Babysitting is an awesome responsibility, one that our newly trained Safe Sitters take very seriously. This year the Y has trained dozens of hard working young people looking to get a leg-up in the business of babysitting, by learning the safety and business skills needed to offer high quality service to their friends and family. Children ages 11-13, boys and girls, that take the Safe Sitter course learn how babysitting is a business, how to be successful on the job, child care essentials, choking rescue, first aid on a child and infant, how to deal with behaviors, and and keeping oneself safe on the job. Classes are offered monthly to Y members and the public. We want to acknowledge this great group of youth and encourage parents to check on the credentials of your sitter.
