SAFE SITTER INC
October 1, 2013

I thought that a babysitting certification course would help our local, church-owned camp. I called another organization to determine the teacher certification and was told about the many pre-requisites and the perhaps 2-year time-delay, I found the Safe Sitter website. It was perfect! The curriculum partnered with my AHA first aid/cpr/aed teaching certifications and allowed up to people to be trained in one session - by video! The staff could not have been more supportive, and the materials are up to date and attractive. Best of all, the related costs are low enough to be cost-effective for us.
We have added Safe Sitter certification to our summer camp line ups. Campers spend 3-4 hours a day in Safe Sitter classes and also get to swim, do crafts (some SS related), and other camp-y activities. At the end of the week, we have a graduation, and they are ready to start their own businesses. We find that the camp schedule gives us more time to add even more information as well as certify the campers in CPR/First Aid/AED and give them more leadership skills. A win-win!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do nothing! It is much better than other training organizations already and very supportive to their instructors.
