Penn State Health Children’s Hospital and Steelton Police Department Presents Safe Sitter!

Penn State Health Children’s Hospital and Steelton Police Department are proud to offer Safe Sitter training. We hope to provide information that will teach your child how to handle emergencies when caring for other children. The program also shares ideas on how to manage being a sitter and the responsibilities and concerns that may arise.

Each participant must pass an open book written exam and review emergency key concepts learned throughout the day.
