Safe Sitter

Do you feel ready to stay home alone, watch your brothers and sisters while your parents are gone, or babysit for younger children?

Then maybe it’s time for Safe Sitter®. Safe Sitter® is for young teens in grades 6-8 who are ready to learn the skills they need

to care for themselves and younger children.


In addition, Safe Sitter® teaches young teens life and business skills, so that they know how to be prepared, be responsible,

and be considerate whether they are babysitting or doing odd jobs for family, friends, or neighbors.

You’ll have fun. You’ll learn a lot. And at the end of the day, you can proudly say, “I am a Safe Sitter®!”
