This Helpers course focuses on the essentials of CPR, First Aid and Emergency Procedures. It is designed for your Helpers who are looking after babies and young children.

This popular course is informative and pertinent. It is conducted over two sessions and at a pace so that your helper can understand and remember what to do when they need it. We truly hope that your Helper will never have to use the information that they learn but believe strongly that every person should try to acquire these life saving skills.

We will provide knowledge which will help you confidently deal with those accidents which can occur with babies and small children. 

- How and when to call an ambulance, our recommended items  to have in a first aid kit as well as some of the common  health hazards found in the home.

- You will be able to recognise and provide initial first aid for poisonings, burns, head injuries (concussion), bleeding, fractures (broken bones), allergic reactions, drownings, skin infections and heat related problems.

Session two:

CPR & emergency procedures, Bathing, Settling & Sleep for Babies & Toddlers (3 hours)

The CPR component relates to teaching effective CPR and AED (artificial external defibrillator). Each participant will be practising this skill on both a child mannequin and a baby mannequin. 

Using the same mannequins we will also be learning how to effectively assist a baby and child who is choking.

We encourage open discussion and questions. Please ensure you wear comfortable clothing as we will be doing some practise on the floor. There will be a short 10 minute break between the sessions.
