Babies and children are naturally curious, making them more prone to injury. If they're pre-verbal, they can't always explain any illness or injury symptoms they might be feeling, and can deteriorate quickly. It's vital that you have the correct knowledge, skills and confidence to know what to do in an emergency.

Here at PACEY we have a real understanding of the situations you're likely to experience as a childminder or when you're working in a nursery or as a nanny. Rather than just general first aid training, we work with our providers to ensure that the course covers the specific paediatric first aid training that childcarers like you need, relating back to real-life situations.

Why should I do first aid training?

First aid training is not only a mandatory requirement for registered childcare professionals, it saves lives. Whether it's a pre-schooler choking on a piece of fruit, a toddler having a febrile convulsion, or an accident in your setting or while out and about, there's no doubt that having relevant and an up-to-date first aid qualification is essential.

You just never know when you might need to treat a wound, manage an asthma attack or provide CPR. Get prepared by taking our first aid course for childcare workers.

What does the training cover?

We work with paediatric first aid training specialists Tigerlily Training, to provide a course that's affordable and memorable, meeting all Ofsted/EYFS requirements. The 12 hour course combines one day of tutor-led training with six hours interactive e-learning and is available at training centres across the country or in-house for larger groups. 

We asked Claire, a special educational needs coordinator, to tell us about her experience of our first aid training.
