Baby & Toddler First Aid Course

On this 4-hour course, you will learn to recognise and treat the most common illnesses and injuries suffered by babies and toddlers; everything from life threatening conditions to bumps and scrapes.

A recent survey in Mother and Baby Magazine found that 83% of parents would not remember what to do in an emergency. Even a simple knowledge of basic first aid can not only save lives, but it can also prevent long term suffering and disability.

Here at St John Ambulance, we believe First Aid is an essential parenting skill. Thus, we have created this course that will ensure the “grown ups” know exactly what to do in the case of an emergency.

Who is this course for?

This course is open to everyone who is responsible for babies and toddlers, but is especially aimed at parents or expectant parents who want to learn first aid skills. Babysitters, grandparents, aunts and uncles are all welcome to attend as well though!
