Because You Care

Caring for children is a special responsibility, and because you love children, you give your very best. You know that children need safe, happy environments in which to live learn and grow. But would you know how to:

  • Make your home a safer place?
  • Prevent injuries before they happen?
  • Rescue a choking infant or child, and provide other first aid basics?

Now, learning how to prevent and respond to common childhood emergencies is easier than ever before.

Child Care First Aid is a dynamic course that will teach you how to make your home a safer place, and help you handle childhood emergencies with confidence. If you are a parent, grandparent, caregiver, or simply someone who loves children, Child Care First Aid is designed for you.
