Safe Sitter Class (Louisville)
Baptist Health Louisville offers Safe Sitter, a medically accurate program, to teach boys and girls, ages 11-14, how to handle emergencies when caring for young children. The goal of Safe Sitter is to educate the sitter on how to care for children in order to prevent accidents, and what to do in case of an emergency.

Safe Sitters learn basic lifesaving and safety techniques, such as:

What to do when a child stops breathing or chokes
How to call for emergency help
Basic child care skills, such as diapering and feeding
How to entertain children and keep them safe
Safe sitters also receive helpful tips to make them more confident babysitters and caregivers, and learn safety and security precautions, such as what to do if a stranger comes to the door and how to call for help. They also receive information on child development and age-appropriate activities, while learning about the business of babysitting.

During the course, participants get hands-on practice in basic lifesaving techniques so they are prepared to act accordingly in a crisis situation.

Course fee is $75, which includes light breakfast, sandwiches, and snack, as well as a messenger bag and other useful items. Scholarships are available based on financial need.

The course is held in the education center on the second floor of the hospital near main surgery. For ease, park in the sixth-story parking garage on the second floor and take the pedway into the hospital. Parents should plan to return at 3:45 for the new sitters’ graduation ceremony.

Safe Sitter Class begins at 9 a.m.

Parents, please return at 3:45 p.m. The new sitters will have a short program to present to you on all the information that they have learned. Dismissal will be at 4 p.m.

The class will be held in the Education Center.

From Breckenridge Lane, turn onto Kresge Way. Go to the second traffic light and turn right to enter the hospital property.

Go straight following the road till you arrive at the 6 story parking garage.

Enter the garage and park on the floor labeled #2. Take the pedway near main surgery to enter the hospital. Signs will direct you to the correct room.

PS. Even though, light breakfast and lunch are served. Most sitters will want to get snacks from the vending machines. Please send $3-4 with your child in one dollar bills or change.

Copy and paste these instructions to your online calendar or print the information.
