First Aid

First Aid

All of our colleagues are trained in paediatric first aid and we offer free first aid workshops to all of our parents

Childbase have worked exclusively with Little Wing since 2014 to deliver all first aid training for colleagues and parents. Little Wing have the philosophy that 'it's not what you teach, it's how you teach' and their trainers are, or have been, part of the front line emergency services.

Both Childbase and Little Wing believe that it's not only essential for childcare practitioners to have this knowledge but also for parents and carers to receive training on basic life saving skills. We offer regular free training courses to our parents/carers at each nursery which are run by an accredited trainer from Little Wing.

  • Calling the emergency services
