Paediatric First Aid

This 12 hour Childcare First Aid course contains child and infant first aid techniques. It is practical and hands on skill development and if you believe the evaluations, lots of fun as well.

It is designed to meet the requirements of Ofsted for registered childminders and the requirements for first aid for nannies (England & Wales). It is ideal for those working in a childcare setting –  nursery, kindergarten, home childcare provider.


Our courses meet the HSE standards for ‘Due Diligence‘ for first aid providers.

The course focuses on dealing with outdoor incident management and improved techniques.


We can run the course at your venue for group sizes of four people upwards. Call us on 0333 4330 731 (free to mobile and landlines callers) or mobile 07585 723763 or email at for more information or to book

The course is useful to those who take children away from the school or the nursery setting, on walks to the park or to catch a bus to activities.
