St. Francis offers babysitting classes

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

It's a cool summer job for kids, and a local hospital is teaching babysitters how to keep children safe inside the home.

On Wednesday, St. Francis offered its annual Safe Sitter classes for girls and boys, ages 11 to 13, at the hospital's Health Matters building.

The class offers lessons on how to operate as a business, first aid like choking prevention, preventing problem behavior, and how to stay safe as a sitter.

"I think it's just an awesome course and I think that it would be great if every parent decided they're going to let someone be responsible for their child's life, that that particular person will have some training, and Safe Sitter would be an excellent way to get that," said Pam Fair with Safe Kids Columbus.

If you missed the class but want your child to be a part of the program, a second class is being held on July 9. Both classes cost $50, which includes lunch, a manual, a completion certificate and graduation.
