Community news | Monday, March 13, 2017

Beauregard Memorial Hospital will offer Safe Sitter® courses for young teens 11 and up on April 20, 2017. Registration deadline is April 18, 2017. Space is Limited.

Over 500,000 adolescent babysitters have graduated from the medically-accurate program which instills students with confidence as they learn how, why and where injuries can happen so they can be prevented. The course is Free of charge. Call 337.462.7113 to register your son or daughter or your child’s babysitter.

The up-to-date curriculum provides hands-on practice in lifesaving techniques designed to prepare babysitters to act in an emergency. Babysitters also receive instruction on how a child’s age affects how to care for them, how to prevent problem behavior and how to run their own babysitting business. They also learn basic first aid as well as how to perform infant and child choking rescue and CPR.

To graduate from the Safe Sitter® course and receive a completion card, students must pass a rigorous practical and written test that indicates their mastery of key concepts and life and safety skills.
