Piedmont Fayette offers safe sitter course for aspiring babysitters


Piedmont Fayette Hospital is a registered Safe Sitter teaching site, offering a comprehensive babysitting training program for young teens (ages 11 and up). Nationally, over 600,000 graduates have completed the course and are able to stay home alone safely and handle emergencies when caring for younger children.

The next Safe Sitter course will be offered on Saturday, March 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The fee is $75 and includes the official Safe Sitter Babysitter’s Handbook and Safe Sitter bag, lunch, water and snacks all day.

Participants in the class will meet other kids, learn choking rescue and CPR techniques and earn a completion card that shows you learned what to do and how to do it.

“Safe Sitter teaches young teens important life and safety skills,” said Tanya Martin, an RN in Piedmont Fayette’s emergency room. “The information is medically accurate, up to date, and could potentially help someone learn how to save a life.”

The course will be held in Conference Room C of the 1279 building on the Piedmont Fayette campus. Space is limited and the deadline to register is two weeks prior to the scheduled class. The class will also be offered on June 12, July 17, Sept. 21, and Nov. 16.
