Class Descriptions

Life & Safety

Class Description: The Life and Safety class was created by LEARNS’s founder and executive director, Melissa Lewis. All the information is conducted and presented on a level of understanding and fun! This class is an introduction to basic level first aid and CPR. The youth will learn how to help their friend from choking, how to determine if someone is breathing (look, listen, feel), how to call 911, how to perform chest compressions and control bleeding.

Time Frame: 45 minutes to 1 hour

Recommended Age: 5-8 years old

Scrubby Bear - Personal Hygiene

Class Description: The Scrubby Bear® hand washing class consists of materials developed to aid in instructing children as to the importance of good hand washing habits in preventing diseases such as Infectious Diarrhea, Hepatitis A, and colds. Scrubby Bear® reminds children and adults that infection can be fought through reinforced by his message, “Don’t get sick, Wash up quick!” Children love Scrubby and really respond to his message. Children will hear a story about Scrubby Bear, be amazed by the “glo-germs” a black light picks up, receive a “Scrubby Bear Clean Hands Club” membership card and will learn the Scrubby Bear hand washing song! With these activities and more, we can improve the child’s knowledge and hygiene.
