Bothwell Regional Health Center will hold a Safe Sitter babysitting education class from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, June 10. The class will be in the Bothwell Education Center, 600 E. 14th Street in Sedalia.

The class is designed to educate adolescents to prepare them for babysitting. Curriculum was recently updated to include pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation training. 

“Students in previous Safe Sitter classes indicated a strong interest in learning CPR in order to be a better prepared baby sitter,” said Bothwell’s Community Outreach Coordinator Melissa Boeschen. “We are pleased to be offering the most recent curriculum that includes CPR in this one-day class. We anticipate filling the class with eager students, ready for a fun summer of babysitting.”

Students also 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 ages 11 to 14. 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 can be done by calling 660-827-9138 or e-mailing mboeschen@brhc.org. Printable registration forms are available online at www.brhc.org/brhc_education_safesitter. Registration and payment are due by May 31. Class size is limited so early registration is suggested.
