Paediatric First Aid EYFS Course – Classroom based

Paediatric First Aid Course – Classroom based

This Paediatric First Aid course was originally designed in conjunction with the National Childminders Association (now PACEY) and Preschool Learning Alliance specifically for those working with young children. It is the full Paediatric First Aid course as detailed in both the Childminder and Group Settings versions of Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and is therefore the qualification accepted by OFSTED when inspecting registered childcare settings.

This course will be based in the classroom with no e-learning component.  (We do have a blended classroom/e-learning option available – please click here to see the blended option)
