Description

Safe Sitter® prepares students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.

Students learn life-saving skills such as how to rescue someone who’s choking, and helpful information like what to do if there’s severe weather. The lessons are filled with fun activities and role-playing exercises. Students even get to use CPR manikins to practice CPR and choking rescue!

Teaching methodology includes hands-on manikin practice, small group interactive learning, role-playing, & games. As an official Safe Sitter® teaching site, Charlotte AHEC utilizes only trained Instructors with a low ratio of students to instructors thus ensuring high quality and compliance with teaching methodologies.

Those who complete this program are prepared with the knowledge they need to prevent problems and handle unexpected emergencies.
