About the Course
This paediatric first aid course caters for emergency situations that can occur when looking after babies, young children and infants. The course is intended for those working with foundation age children, including: those who work in day nurseries, pre-schools, private nursery schools and play gyms; those who run before and after school clubs; and childminders, nannies and carers.
Our course meets the OFSTED Early Years and Childcare Register requirements and will provide you with the skills to recognise and help with a range of illnesses or injuries whilst you wait for the emergency services to arrive.
