Learn Children’s First Aid

Children hurt themselves; it’s a fact of life. But how can you ensure the best possible outcome when an accident or injury occurs? Will you know what to do if there’s a medical emergency?

Don’t worry, this guide is here to help. We know how important it is for parents and caregivers to know how to respond in case of an emergency.

First Aid training is not only important to care for children. It also gives you reassurance that if something did happen, it can be dealt with calmly and confidently.

Be prepared & get qualified

  • It’s recommended that all babysitters and nannies hold a valid and current First Aid Qualification. New parents and parents of young children are encouraged to undertake the training also.
  • Emergency medical treatment for young children or babies isn’t always the same as for adults, so a certification in Child/Paediatric First Aid is better.
  • Ensure that the training has been or will be undertaken through a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
  • Refresher courses should also be undertaken regularly as recommended by the training provider, especially CPR as first aid practices change and skills can be lost when not used.
  • Ensure you or the families you work for have a fully stocked first aid kit. The recommendations for what to include will vary, just make sure you have what you need to deal with common minor injuries.
