Our First Aid Classes are available for children from as young as 3 years old. Both our Early Years (ages 3-6) and Kids classes (7-11) have won awards and provide children with the basic first aid knowledge required for a first aid emergency.
You can book onto a public class at a local venue, or you can enquire about classes to take place in schools, clubs or privately arranged venues.
Mini First Aid Early Years classes are for children aged 3-6 and work with the Early Years Curriculum. Children learn about what happens to their bodies if they are hurt and how they would be treated by a grown up. The children get to meet Freddie who not only knows how to ring 999 but also knows his address when mummy is poorly.
Children receive a certificate for attending and the class is loved by all.
Mini First Aid Kids is designed for children aged 7-11. Children are starting to be more independent and can understand basic first aid. In the 1-hour session, Children learn to deal with bumps, burns, breaks and bleeding, carry out CPR and deal with choking. The class is practical, lots of fun and involves lots of activities for the children to enjoy. A favourite with schools and voluntary groups, the class can also be organised for private groups.
It was a pleasure meeting Kate and Jacky from Mini First Aid and being taught what to do in case of an emergency. Learning CPR and what to do when a child is choking is invaluable. Obviously, I hope I never had to use the things I learned in today’s class, but horrible things happen and knowing these techniques can really make a huge difference. The class was fun and accessible given the seriousness of the topic. I would highly recommend everyone doing it.
I Attended the mini first aid session today, it was great. Informative and pitched at just the right level for a busy, worrying mum. It was practical and all questions were answered. I feel confident that in a scary situation I would be able to help my little girl and keep her safe. Thank you for a great afternoon X
I was struggling to find a baby/paediatric first aid course that would fit in with being a busy new mum with a five month old baby! Came across mini first aid and I’m so glad I did! Gemma was so knowledgable and covered all the topics we mums worry about. Being a mum herself, she had first hand experience and was able to answer all questions thrown at her. Gemma explained things really well and I have come away feeling far more confident about dealing with choking, CPR, burns, shock, and much more! It was such a relaxed environment and I loved the fact it was delivered in a small group, and I was made to feel so comfortable to have my baby there with me and was able to attend to her needs throughout, without having to worry about feeding/changing/crying etc. A fantastic course, very reasonably priced and well worth every penny! Thank you to the lady who set this up, and to Gemma. I will recommend this course to all my friends with babies and children.
My husband & I did the course with our NCT crew. It was enjoyable, easy to understand with great practical advice, babies can attend too! Highly recommended.
Me and my dad did this course yesterday and I took my 10 month old baby along. I left feeling a lot more confident that if be able to deal with any first aid issues. I also appreciated the relaxed atmosphere as my baby is rarely quiet!
There are a gazillion things I never seem to get around to doing (fixing the broken blind in our bedroom, getting some photos printed of ‘the baby’ who is almost two but still doesn’t exist on our walls, pinning down the coffee date I’ve been promising my neglected friend via WhatsApp for at least 6 months…) BUT this morning I finally got my arse in gear and ticked off something from my ‘Really Must Do’ list by attending a First Aid class designed specifically for parents, grandparents and carers of babies and young children. It took just two hours out of my morning and covered a whole host of stuff including what to do if a child is choking, how to deal with burns/breaks/bleeding and the basics of life-saving CPR for kids.
I cannot recommend Mini First Aid enough. Kate ran a private class for me and my 11 year old daughter in the comfort of our own home, which was perfect especially as my babies are due any day now. My daughter and I feel much more confident in knowing what to do in a range of emergency situations and I also got some extra twin tips from Kate as a fellow twin Mum! It's such an important life skill that every parent and carer should have so I would urge you to book a Mini First Aid course today.
