Iberia Medical Center Offering December 30 Safe Sitter Class - Friday, November 29, 2019

beria Medical Center, a Registered Safe Sitter® Teaching Site, is offering the life and safety training program for young teens, grades 6-8 on December 30, 2019.

Safe Sitter® is a nationally-recognized, fun and informative class that prepares students to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.

Class topics will include

  • Safety Skills: Students learn how to prevent unsafe situations and what to do when faced with dangers such as power failures or weather emergencies.
  • Child Care Skills: Students learn tips to manage behavior that will help them stay in control of themselves and the children in their care. Students also learn the ages and stages of child development, as well as practice diapering.
  • First Aid & Rescue Skills: Learning skills such as choking rescue and CPR is often students’ favorite part of the class. Students also learn a system to help them assess and respond to injuries and illnesses.
  • Life & Business Skills: The ability to screen jobs, discuss fees, and greet employers will set students up for success now and in the future. Students practice these skills through various role plays.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) injuries are the leading cause of death in children up to age 5. This class aims to reduce the number of avoidable and unintentional deaths among children being cared for by young teens. The program follows American Heart Association standards for rescue skills and instruction in first aid techniques from the AAP.

Students who graduate from the Iberia Medical Center Safe Sitter® class will receive a completion card that demonstrates their safety skills. Graduates will also receive a CPR card and t-shirt. Classes will take place in CLASSROOM A at the Iberia Medical Center Main Campus, 2315 Main Street. Class fee is $50 per student.
