The two paediatric first aid courses below are run across the UK and are tailored to meet the new Early Years foundation stage (EYFS) and registration on the OFSTED statutory and voluntary register.

Both courses are aimed at childcarers, including: nursery staff, childminders, at home childcarers, au pairs, nannies and anyone wishing to voluntarily join the OFSTED register. Our paediatric first aid courses fall in line with the Early Years foundation stage (EYFS) which states that a combination of face to face learning and home study can be applied when learning first aid as a childcare worker.

Paediatric first aid training was brilliant although was about the 5th time I have done the training due to my job. The trainer delivered it really well and I came away learning new things and with more confidence in first aid situations. Thank you

I have been on a lot of first aid training over the years and what I particularly enjoyed on Saturday was the relaxed atmosphere, it wasn’t rushed and it went at a good pace. The instructor was friendly, warm and approachable. For myself to have the course broken down to one day training followed up by the work book, fitted in so well, as we all lead such busy lives. The convenience of the location too was an added bonus. I would thoroughly recommend your organisation to others.

I recently attended a first aid course with Kay and she was fantastic. I always dread going on these courses every three years as I am a registered childminder and so far it's the best course I have been to.
Kay made everyone at ease and it was very friendly. I would recommend to anyone and would be booking another course with them. Thank you Kay and Julie xx
