Bothwell to conduct Safe Sitter class on April 22


Sedalia, Missouri, March 27, 2017 — Bothwell Regional Health Center (BRHC) will conduct a Safe Sitter babysitting education class from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 22. The class will be in the Bothwell Education Center, 600 E. 14th St. in Sedalia.

The class is designed to teach young teens and preteens how to be better, safer babysitters. The Safe Sitter curriculum now includes pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation training.

“Students in previous Safe Sitter classes indicated a strong interest in learning CPR to be better-prepared babysitters,” said Melissa Boeschen, community outreach coordinator. “We are pleased to offer the most recent curriculum that includes CPR in this one-day class. We anticipate quickly filling the class with eager students who are ready to be safe babysitters this spring and summer.”

Students in the class also will learn about injury management and prevention, childcare essentials, behavior management, the business of babysitting, and how to care for a choking child or infant. Course materials are designed for children in grades 6-8. Participants must be at least 11 years old. Cost for the class is $35, which includes a messenger bag containing babysitting essentials.

Preregistration is required and due, along with payment, by April 10. Please call (660) 827-9138 or e-mail mboeschen@brhc.org to register. Printable registration forms are available online at by clicking here. Class size is limited.
