First Aid for Babies and Children

Enrolling on a First Aid for Babies and Children Course is one of the most important classes you can do.  You should expect to cover things like Resuscitation and CRP, Choking, Recovery positions, Head Injuries, Burns, Seizures and Shock. 

 Most classes are for the day or half a day and you should leave with the confidence that if a baby or child in your care has an accident you should at least be able to calmly approach the situation with lifesaving knowledge and deliver the First Aid required.


Daisy First Aid’s multi award winning 2 hr classes have been specifically designed for parents and carers of babies and children.  Classes are held in the comfort of your own home for you, your family and friends or you can join one of the classes held in selected venues across Dorset.


The East Dorset classes are run by Kerry and Danielle.  Kerry is a mum of one and an ex Metropolitan Police Officer with over 10 years experience in emergency First Aid and Danielle recently joined the team after attending the class herself.  Danielle is also a mum of one and passionately believes that every parent should know First Aid.
