Review for Safe Sitter Inc, Indianapolis, IN, USA
My first experience with Safe Sitter occurred in the late 80's when I attended a training so I could volunteer teach with the organization. As a new mom with a degree in education, I had enough a-ha moments that day to convince me that this should be mandatory training for ALL youth!
What I love most about the Safe Sitter class is that it is not just a babysitting class...it is a life skills class for young adolescents. Everything from business skills to child care skills to first aid/CPR to safety skills is covered in an age-appropriate, fun, hands-on learning environment.
What I love most about the Safe Sitter organization is that the safety of all children is the first priority in every aspect. The class has evolved over time, stays current with what's important and real in the lives of young teens, and will never, ever compromise on medical accuracy.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
all 3 of my children who are Safe Sitter graduates and came out of the class with new skills, new friends, and confidence in their abilities to take care of themselves as well as younger children.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
want them to never experience any financial hardship so they could continue doing the good work they do.
