Toddler First Aid

Toddler First Aid Classes

Toddler first aid is not something we like to think about at any time but if an emergency situation did arise, would you know what to do?

In the UK, 90% of parents don’t know the basic toddler first aid techniques that could help save their children’s lives, and only two out of ten of parents think that they could resuscitate their child.

Nationally, one-third of parents say they, or somewhere that their child visits, has a pond and almost half of these ponds have no cover and are unfenced. Also, 22% of parents have suffered the distress of watching their child choke and ‘didn’t know what to do’.

Because of this, the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS UK) have developed the Save a Baby’s Life program. This valuable program covers how to administer Life Support for a baby or child who is not breathing, or who is choking, and what to do in a drowning incident, teaching toddler first aid for all parents.

The course is designed to introduce anyone who cares for a child – e.g. parents, grandparents, guardians, friends, babysitters or even older teenage siblings to some basic emergency action skills and toddler first aid.

In this two hour workshop you will learn how to:

  • Recognise signs of life and what to do in an emergency
  • Perform CPR on babies and young children
  • Perform first aid on a child that is choking
  • and finally, what to do in the event of drowning
