Leeds-based Little People Nurseries is offering baby and child first aid classes for parents, grandparents and carers in Bramley, Farsley, and Stanningley.
Taking place on weekends from 21 September, the two-hour class covers CPR, choking, bumps, burns, breaks, bleeding and febrile seizures.
Mini First Aid has also partnered with the Meningitis Research Foundation to ensure that everyone who attends will receive the most up-to-date information on meningitis awareness.
Vicky Hallas-Fawcett, owner of Little People Nurseries, said:
“We wanted to make sure that parents and carers had the opportunity to deal with any medical emergencies that arise whether at home or out and about.
“We’re delighted to partner with Mini First Aid to offer these courses to parents and carers. These are skills for life and vitally important.”
Established by Leeds mum Kate Ball in 2014, Mini First Aid offers a range of classes across the UK for adults and children as young as three years old, training them in basic and lifesaving first aid.
Kate Ball, founder of Mini First Aid, said:
“Our aim is to give parents and carers the confidence to know what actions to take if faced with a medical emergency and it’s fantastic that Little People Nurseries is committed to helping parents to learn these vital skills.”
