Fayetteville, Ga. (August 12, 2013) - Piedmont Fayette Hospital is now a Registered Safe Sitter® Teaching Site, offering comprehensive babysitting training for young teens (ages 11 and older). Nationally, over 600,000 graduates have completed the course and are able to stay home alone safely and handle emergencies when caring for younger children.
The curriculum provides hands-on practice in lifesaving techniques designed to prepare babysitters to act in an emergency. Babysitters receive instruction on how a child’s age affects how to care for them, how to prevent problem behavior and how to run their own babysitting business. They also learn basic first aid as well as how to perform infant and child choking rescue and CPR techniques.
The first one-day training course will be held on Saturday, September 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Piedmont Fayette, which is located at 1279 Highway 54 West. The course will be held on the third floor in conference room A. The fee is $45 and includes the Official Safe Sitter® Babysitter’s Handbook and Safe Sitter Bag. To register, call 770-719-5815 or email Maria LePage at firstname.lastname@example.org.
