Why do your Paediatric First Aid Training with First Aid abc?

When working in a childcare setting, the safety and well-being of the children is paramount. Having staff that are confident in their ability to deliver effective first aid is a crucial part of that care.

In March 2015, the Government put forward a proposal requiring all newly qualified Early Years Providers to hold a valid Paediatric First Aid Certificate. These proposals came into force in September 2016. Ofsted check first aid qualifications in relation to this proposal. Therefore ensuring your paediatric first aid training is up to date is crucial.

It is already considered good practice to have the majority of staff on site qualified and would be reassuring for any management team. To be confident that any member of staff was able to act effectively in the event of an emergency.

First Aid abc was created by Dee Bell, Registered Midwife in order to meet the first aid needs of childcare professionals. With a background in nursing and midwifery and years of childcare  experience, our trainers and assessors are able to deliver bespoke first aid courses to suit your childcare setting.

--- Best course ever, well organised, sharing experience and knowledge with possibilities to practice under guidance (partly on different dummies) for the emergency. It gives yourself and your partner much more knowledge and confidence for worst case scenarios. This is so important, especially with young children! Well done! Highly recommended!!!
