Baby & Child first aid workshop   Child Care First Aid Course

Baby & Child first aid workshop

This is a one of a kind workshop targeted to those who do not require certification but are interested in learning how to care for their children in emergency situations.  Our goal is to provide an opportunity for parents and caregivers to learn basic first aid in a familiar setting, and be able to share the experience with friends and family.  The workshop is ideal for a group of parents, friends, community group, or school group.





Benefits of our unique workshop include:

•  Learn how to handle emergencies, basic CPR skills, first aid for choking emergencies, and common injuries.
•  Comfortable learning environment - the workshop can be held at your home or at our classroom.
•  Small group size mean more individual attention from the instructor - we recommend a group of 4 to 10 participants.
•  Plenty of hands-on practice - we provide all equipment.
•  Share the experience with family - we encourage the participation of children and involve them in demonstrations.
• Workshops are conducted by certified Canadian Red Cross instructors.


Workshop format:

• Topics include; First aid for choking, respiratory emergencies, cardiac arrest, severe allergic reactions, and soft tissue injuries.  Additional topics can be included depending on how much time you would like to schedule.
• We can conduct the workshop at your home or location of your choice.
• You will require approximately 2-4 hours. This includes time for frequent breaks (snacks, play time, and even nap time).
• Our instructor will introduce each topic and provide a demonstration.
• Participants will have an opportunity to practice on our CPR manikins, and when possible, will also learn correct positioning on real children.
• Babies and children are welcome.  However, depending on the ages of the children we may require one adult to supervise the children in a 'play area' for portions of the workshop.
