Horizon Health will offer a Safe Sitter class for boys and girls ages 11-13 on Monday, October 10. The class will take place from 8:30 am to 3 pm at the Horizon Health Education Center, 15197 US Highway 150, in Paris.

Safe Sitter is a nationally recognized class that provides babysitters with basic safe child care techniques so they are prepared to act in a crisis. The class provides tips on safety and security precautions, facts about child development and age-appropriate activities, and explains the business aspects of babysitting.

In addition to becoming well-qualified babysitters, adolescents who complete the class are also better prepared for parenthood. Other benefits include enhanced self-esteem, introductory employment skills, personal safety, and other life skills.

The cost is $35, which covers materials and lunch. No parent is required to be present except for picking up and dropping off the child. Register by Monday, October 3, at 5 pm at MyHorizonHealth.org/Classes. Register early as class size is limited. For more information, call 217-466-4333.
