Bellefonte to conduct a Safe Sitter class

Jan. 08, 2014 @ 12:00 AM

RUSSELL, Ky. -- Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital's Healthy Community Services will host a Safe Sitter class from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18, at Bellefonte Centre, 1000 Ashland Drive.

The class takes place in Healthy Community Services' classroom on the fourth floor of Bellefonte Centre. The cost is $35, which includes a Safe Sitter backpack, training manual and lunch.

Safe Sitter prepares young adolescents ages 11 to 16 for the responsibilities of nurturing and protecting children. Safe Sitter teaches teenage babysitters how to handle crises, how to keep their charges secure, and how to nurture and guide a young child. Bellefonte is a registered Safe Sitter teaching site and has been providing the program at the hospital for more than 20 years.

To register, contact the OLBH CareLine at 606-833-CARE (2273).
