About Safe Sitter®

Safe Sitter® was founded in 1980 by Indianapolis pediatrician Dr. Patricia A. Keener after a colleague's 18-month-old choked to death while under an adult sitter's care. Troubled by the lack of educational programming for sitters and young adults, Dr. Keener developed Safe Sitter® as a medically-accurate instructional program designed for young teens, no younger than 11.
