About Safe Sitter®

Founded in 1980, Safe Sitter® is the only national nonprofit training program exclusively devoted to preparing young teens to be safe in unsupervised settings, whether home alone, sibling sitting or babysitting.  

Safe Sitter® is a one-day class that prepares students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.

The Safe Sitter® course offered by the Cass County Health Department is Safe Sitter Essentials with CPR.

Students must be registered a week in advance to secure their seat in the class.  Registration includes the registration form (found here) and the $40 class fee.  For more information, please contact Sarah Czech by email or call 816-380-8429.
