First Aid Courses

Our children are the most precious people in our lives and no one wants to imagine anything hurting them - but in an unthinkable emergency, would you have the essential skills that could save a child's life?  There are a range of different course providers running in the area to give you the confidence that you would know how to act in an emergency.

Daisy First Aid
Daisy First Aid's award winning 2 hour classes will teach you how to deal with unconscious babies, children and adults, what to do if they are not breathing, how to react to febrile seizures, stop them choking, recognise serious head injuries, deal with allergies and anaphylaxis, respond to common toxins and poisons as well as what to do if you suspect a sprain or fracture, treat and recognise the severity of burns and effectively bandage bleeding. We also look at recognition and response to meningitis and sepsis and each attendee will go away with leaflets and cards on meningitis, a set of printed and illustrated class notes and their own certificate.

The class is ideal for all parents, babysitters, grandparents, expectant parents and staff of child friendly businesses that don't need the full 2 day qualification (which we also offer). An excellent way to give yourself the confidence and peace of mind that knowing how to deal with emergencies brings.  Babies are welcome at classes.   Classes are regularly held around the area.

First aid classes for children
Mini First Aid KIDS is an hour class for children, designed to encourage them to think about the actions they would take in an emergency situation if no adults were present.  In small groups, children learn lifesaving techniques such as CPR and choking as well as how to deal with cuts and breaks and the basics of emergency first aid through interactive and fun sessions.  These classes are aimed at children between the ages of 7-12 years old. 

Mini First Aid EARLY YEARS is a half an hour class for 3-6 year olds which covers topics such as how to call for help, what happens if they bump their head or cut themselves.  Once again it is delivered in a fun and interactive way to engage the children.  We also have a fantastic, one-of-a-kind book called “The Mini Adventures of Freddie”, written by Mini First Aid founder, Kate Ball, which is aimed at children in this age range and is read during the class to reaffirm the lessons taught. 

Private classes are also available for our KIDS & EARLY YEARS Classes these can be held at your home/nursery or venue of your choice.
