In brief: Safety

When a child is under the supervision of a sitter injuries and other health related events can and will occur and the sitter is the person who is able to first respond.
In emergencies (choking, cuts, anaphylaxis, etc) understanding basic first aid is essential to stabilize the child until emergency personal can arrive.
