What you say

“Great baby and child first aid course Caroline was fantastic in the way she explained and demonstrated everything. The course has given me confidence that I will know how to deal with accidents and emergencies in future if I need to. Would definitely recommend to anyone who has or works with children.”

Holly McDermot

“If you are looking for a fun, interactive, educational workshop for children in early years settings, then I would highly recommend the Little Rescuers course. Caroline was able to create a package that was right for our children and fit in with our  topic and learning objectives. Caroline’s method of delivery and course content meant that all the children in both Nursery and Reception were highly engaged throughout”

Helen Allison

“This superb short babies and children First Aid course has really set my mind at ease, making me feel more confident and reassured in my ability to help if something awful were to happen. It was informative, practical and very well delivered by Caroline. Overall it has left me feeling that I could do the right thing in the most frightening of situations, and would highly recommend it to anyone, especially for family members looking after babies or young children. Caroline was an exceptional instructor, with a friendly, approachable and down to earth manner.”
