We believe that all Nannies and Childcarers working in the home or childcare setting should have an up to date 12 hour Paediatric First Aid Course certificate. Suitable First Aid training will cover at least 6 hours of practical and 6 hours of written assessment (a total of 12 hours training, sometimes referred to as ‘blended training’) on a course with no more than 12 participants.
The course should be a UK nationally recognised qualification, also known as a ’12hr Paediatric First Aid & Anaphylactic Shock Awareness Course’ to meet the guidelines set out by Practice Guidance for the Early Years Foundation Stage Appendix 1, and updated at least once every 3 years.
You can purchase a compliant Child and Baby First Aid kit here.
