This course is delivered in accordance with the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which is mandatory for all early years’ providers, and thereby meets Ofsted requirements. Training is primarily aimed at child-minders, nursery workers and school staff, but is suitable for anyone who requires a more in-depth knowledge of paediatric first aid. The training will be delivered by a paediatric specialist and includes both theoretical and practical sessions. We also offer a Basic Paediatric First Aid course which is designed for nannies, au pairs, babysitters and child-minders who wish to enrol on the voluntary part of the Ofsted Childcare Register.
Our 2 day Paediatric First Aid training course is available at our centre or in-house at a venue of your choosing.
