About the course

Our First Aid for Young Children course is recommended for parents, grandparents, babysitters, nannies, childminders, and home-based carers. This course not only focuses on the First Aid required for children and infants but also the hazards and common childhood injuries/illnesses that can be encountered.

This course will give you the skills and confidence to be able to react and apply appropriate First Aid action to a young child in a life-threatening situation. This course is run mainly in the evenings or on a Saturday to not interfere with your child-minding duties.
