Class Description

Rocky Mountain Youth Training Academy uses the leading edge Safe Sitter® curriculum.  Safe Sitter® teaches young teens (age 11-16) everything they need to know to be safe when they’re home alone, while watching siblings or while babysitting. Using social media appropriately while babysitting is covered in class and we practice different scenarios to help students feel empowered to speak up for themselves if they are ever in an uncomfortable situation. We like to cap our class size at 8 to encourage students to engage in class discussion, have practice time on the CPR manikins and diaper a “baby.”

We offer classes throughout the year and can also design a Customized 1, 2, or 3 day Camp for your group.  Check out our calendar for upcoming classes or contact us for information on a Customized Camp.



Katie Maguire


Katie started babysitting at age 11 when she offered to watch a neighbors little boy while she went to the grocery store. Not realizing that she would be walking home with a surprise $5 in her pocket just for playing with a cute little boy, Katie quickly made flyers and knocked on the doors of neighbors who had children. Her love for kids and entrepreneurial spirit lead her to create a profitable little business as she babysit her way through Middle School, High School, College and even while pregnant with her first child.

Katie’s main goal for wanting to become a SafeSitter® Instructor was primarily for her 12 year old daughter (who is a Safe Sitter® Graduate). She found that similar classes were expensive and not very engaging. The games, graphics, real-life scenarios and support from the Safe Sitter® headquarters really makes a difference when teaching young teens. “My hope is that each student who graduates our class will feel empowered as they start earning their own money, will have fun and be engaging with children while using their creativity on the job, and will feel confident and effective as they use the skills learned at their Safe Sitter® class.”
