PEP’s Super Sitters Class and Lab is for young people age 10 and older. In three class meetings plus a lab, prospective sitters learn skills including these:
- Communicating with parents
- Winning the cooperation of children in their care
- Preventing and handling emergencies
- Tailoring care to meeting the changing needs of children as they grow
NOTE: By law, a sitter must be at least 13 years old to sit for children without an adult present. Youth age 10-12 can be parents’ helpers.
