A wide variety of community-minded individuals and organizations can offer Safe Sitter®. Safe Sitter® is often taught at hospitals; youth-serving organizations such as Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and YMCAs; schools; service clubs; churches and other faith-based organizations; fire departments; health departments; camps; parks and recreation departments; libraries; and more.
Members of approved associations (e.g. American Heart Association, American Association of School Librarians, American Federation of Teachers, American School Counselor Association, National Association of School Nurses, or National Education Association) can become an Independent Instructor.
Nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and legal entities such as a C-Corporation, S-Corporation, LLC, LLP, or Partnership may become either a Teaching Site or a Teaching Center. Please note that sole proprietors may not become Teaching Sites or Teaching Centers. Learn more about Registered Provider options.
Registered Providers establish and collect their own student fees, and set their fees considering supplies, orders, Instructor costs, and income level of the community served.
Safe Sitter® is a valuable, high-quality experience. We encourage you to charge fees that are reasonable for the families your organization serves. Providers frequently charge $35-$75 per student for a single-day class.
Collaborate with another organization in your community to control costs and expand your outreach. For example, a hospital could teach at a nearby school. The school would handle recruitment and registration. The hospital would do the teaching and, as the Registered Safe Sitter® Provider, remain responsible for assuring that all Safe Sitter® policies are followed.
If you’re a not-for-profit hospital, check with your administration about including the costs of offering Safe Sitter® in your hospital’s required Community Benefit Plan.
