Courses during Lockdowns:

If you have booked on an in-person "First Aid for Littlies" course, and if we are unable to run the course due to Alert Level restrictions, you will be offered the option of attending the course via Zoom or transferring to another in-person date.  And if you do a Zoom course I'll post your course booklets out to you afterwards.  Please email if you have any queries.  Stay safe!

FIRST AID FOR LITTLIES - for parents and caregivers of babies and young children

About the course:

This course is very child-specific and hands-on. It looks at:
  • CPR (practice with manikins);
  • Choke-rescue techniques (practice with manikins);
  • Child-specific illnesses (croup, febrile convulsions, meningitis, etc - how to recognise them and what to do about them);
  • Dealing with other emergency situations such as burns, allergic reactions, poisonings, bangs on the head, broken bones, etc;
  • Common childhood illnesses (fevers, coughs, colds, tummy bugs, etc);
  • How to recognise when you need to take your baby or toddler to the doctor;
  • Safety around the home;
  • Child car restraints.
Everyone on the course receives a booklet, to complement the explanations and demonstrations on the course. The course is two hours long. Babies are very welcome on courses!

How to book:

There are several different ways you can do this course:

Join a public course: These run on a regular basis in Epsom and they also run via Zoom once a month. (See below for dates and bookings for these public courses). Bookings are essential as spaces are limited.
