Mercy Hospital Jefferson will once again hosts its annual Super Sitter Seminar for area children to learn valuable tips to help them become responsible, safe baby-sitters.

The content of the popular program is targeted to boys and girls ages 9 through 16 and includes information on home safety, first aid, emergency situations and infant care, along with age-appropriate activities.

Amy Schwent, RN, from the Mercy Woman and Child Health Center, will provide child care instructions, and guest speakers from the Crystal City Fire Department and Joachim-Plattin Ambulance District will offer safety tips.

Space is limited for this popular program, and pre-registration is required. The cost of the seminar is $10 and includes take-home information, a completion certificate and ID card, a snack and prize drawings.

The seminar is scheduled for 8 a.m. to noon on Friday, July 10, in the conference center at Mercy Hospital. The registration deadline is scheduled for July 6, but advanced registration will end sooner if all 100 available seats are assigned.
