How would you like to start your own business, find out how to be safe in a work environment, and be trained to possibly save a life? That’s exactly what the Safe Sitter® babysitting classes offered by the Olathe Library can help you achieve.
Many Young Adults babysit to make extra money – often without receiving any training or skills beyond showing up and “sitting”. When you train as a Safe Sitter®, you can take on jobs with the confidence of knowing how to manage the children in your care as well as protecting yourself!
- Young Adults aged 11+ may take the classes
- Not just boring lectures! You will practice scenarios, do some role- playing, and perform hands-on activities to help you learn the skills taught in the program.
- Learn how to choose safe jobs and jobs you can handle. Phone and interviewing skills as well as personal safety issues are covered.
