Child & Infant First Aid

Every year, more than half a million children under 5 need to go to hospital after having an accident at home. A further 67,000 are injured or killed simply playing in their gardens. What’s even more frightening is that 83% of parents questioned by Mother & Baby magazine admitted that they wouldn’t remember what to do in an emergency.

But don’t worry, because we’re here to help you. With our Baby First Aid course, we’ll teach you some of the most common accidents and injuries suffered by infants and children up to the age of puberty. So if the unthinkable happens and your child has an accident, you’ll know exactly what to do.
