New Course for Kids: Safe@Home

New Course for Kids: Safe@Home


As children get older, parents may feel more and more comfortable with the idea of leaving their child or children at home for periods of time depending on many factors including the child’s maturity level, confidence, and knowledge of safety information.  The creators of Safesitter have constructed a new course called Safe@Home for this very reason! The Library will be offering this new class several times per year that will help equip your child with the confidence and information to safely stay at home solo.

Safe@ Home has been specifically designed to prepare kiddos to stay at home alone safely.  During this 90 minute in-person training, students will learn how to handle various types of emergencies, when and how to call 911, simple first aid skills, stranger awareness, how to respond to weather threats, power failures and more, building self-confidence and a stronger sense of responsibility.  The class is small group style and will be facilitated by youth librarian, Becky Stuck.

Safe@Home is geared towards youth in grades 4 – 6.  The cost is $12 which includes a take home book (topics covered in class) for you and your family to review and refer to at home.  If you have any questions about the program, please contact Becky at 317-873-8342 or via email at
