Safe Sitter 

Safe Sitter Logo

Our club offers Safe Sitter courses throughout the year. Safe Sitter teaches adolescent babysitters how to handle crises, how to keep their charges secure, and how to nurture and guide a young child. In short, Safe Sitter babysitters help children stay safe and sound while their parents are away. In the process, these 11-to 13-year-olds emerge as more confident, responsible and compassionate teens and adults. (

We have over 750 graduates so far!
