SAFE@HOME by Safe Sitter® is a program designed for students in grades 4-6 to prepare them to be safe when they are home alone. The program is to enable any adult that enjoys teaching preteens to facilitate an introductory level program to prepare students to care for themselves when parents are away for short periods of time.
Students learn how to stay safe when parents are away from home for short periods of time. Students learn how to prevent unsafe situations and what to do when faced with dangers such as power failures or weather emergencies. Students are also introduced to the Safe Sitter® First Aid Chart and learn a system to help them assess and respond to injuries and illnesses.
SAFE@HOME is ideal for students that have expressed interest in assuming the responsibility of staying home alone. Students that are interested in learning how to stay home alone safely as well as care for younger children should complete one of our comprehensive Safe Sitter® courses.
