Safe@Home by Safe Sitter® is a program designed for students in grades 4-6 to prepare them to be safe when they are home alone. This program helps to prepare students to care for themselves when parents are away for short periods of time.
Safe@Home is a 90-minute program that teaches students how to practice safe habits, how to prevent unsafe situations, and what to do when faced with dangers such as power failures or weather emergencies. Students are also introduced to the Safe Sitter® First Aid Chart and learn a system to help them assess and respond to injuries and illnesses.
Countryside YMCA is a 2019 Bronze Level Safe Sitter® Provider. We are proud to work with Safe Sitter® in offering this new class to younger participants. Classes are offered on a quarterly basis.
