safe sitter

Peninsula Regional Medical Center will offer Safe Sitter courses this summer for young men and women ages 11-14. Safe Sitter is a medically accurate course that covers how to handle emergencies when caring for young children.

Safe Sitters learn:

  • Basic life-saving techniques
  • Safety precautions to prevent accidents
  • How and when to summon help
  • Tips on basic child care

The one-day course will be held on June 28 (June 28 class now full!), July 12, July 26 and August 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. A fee of $50 covers the day’s program and materials. To register a participant, call 410-912-6943. Maryland law says a child must be at least 13 to babysit.
