Child Care First Aid


First Aid & CPR training is mandatory for child care professionals; but, unlike most other types of safety training, these skills and knowledge are also applicable to every individual’s daily life. This is why we teach people First Aid & CPR in easy-to-follow steps, empowering them to act on, prevent, and manage life’s emergencies.

We offer the Canadian Red Cross Emergency Child Care First Aid and CPR to help child care facilities be compliant with both federal and provincial/territorial occupational health and safety legislation.

The Emergency Child Care First Aid is 8 hours and is the minimum requirement for day care facilities.

Our courses are based on a combination of teaching techniques that include:

  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Skills demonstration and practice
  • Scenarios
  • Exercises
  • Class discussions and Q & A

You will practice on a variety of training materials to help you develop your skills, such as mannequins for practicing CPR, AED trainers, bandages, splinting materials, barrier devices, first aid kits, epinephrine auto-injector trainers, Metered Dose Inhalers and spacers etc.

During the course, our well-trained Red Cross First Aid Instructors monitor your progress and provide you with continuous feedback to help increase your skill retention. The materials are colourful and easy to use, with checklists and step-by-step photos, and can be used as quick reference after the course as well.
