Safe Sitter

North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo and West Point offer Safe Sitter®, a medically-accurate babysitting training program designed for adolescents 11 years and older.

During the course, instructors give students hands-on practice in life-saving techniques so they are prepared to act in a crisis. Instructors also provide tips to make sitters more confident caregivers. They teach safety and security precautions, such as what to do if a stranger comes to the door, when and how to call for help, give information on child development and suggest age-appropriate activities.

Developed by Dr. Patricia A. Keener, the Safe Sitter® program has been recognized nationally by the American Academy of Pediatrics for educational excellence. Dr. Keener continues to play an active role in the organization and works with staff to update the curriculum regularly.
