Early Years, Kids or Teens Video Call Classes
Mini First Aid Early Years classes are for children aged 3-6 and work with the Early Years & Key Stage 1 Curriculum. Children learn about what happens to their bodies if they are hurt and how they would be treated by a grown up.
There are 2 classes available;
After each class children will receive a certificate for attending. The award-winning classes are loved by all.
Mini First Aid Kids is designed for children aged 7-11. Children are starting to be more independent and can understand basic first aid. In the 1-hour session, Children learn to deal with bumps, burns, breaks and bleeding, carry out CPR and deal with choking. The class is practical, lots of fun and involves lots of activities for the children to enjoy. A favourite with schools and voluntary groups, the class can also be organised for private groups.
Children with Healthy Minds AND Healthy Bodies
With mental health on the National Curriculum for Primary and Secondary schools, our Healthy Minds programme teaches children aged 7-11 about how to stay healthy mentally as well as physically.
We know from teachers and children, that our award-winning Kids classes are memorable and fun. So we have taken what we do, and applied it to the most important issue for children right now: Having a healthy mind.
Healthy Minds includes six 1 hour workshop style classes which provide children with a solid foundation for positive mental health and wellbeing.
Workshops: Self Esteem, Anxiety, Bullying, Body Image, Resilience and Healthy Minds (Putting Skills into Practice)
Mini First Aid Teens is for children aged 11-16. This class enables them to deliver first aid if no adults were available. In the 2-hour session, Teens learn to carry out CPR and deal with choking, deal with head injuries, burns, breaks, bleeding, asthma attacks and allergic reactions. This class meets the KS3 National Curriculum Requirements in England & Wales. The class is practical, lots of fun and involves lots of activities for the children to enjoy. Perfect for schools and voluntary groups, the class can also be organised for private groups.
I enjoyed the class. Alison delivered all the necessary information at a good pace. There was a chance to practice the techniques and go back over anything if we needed to. It was a relaxed and friendly environment and I was able to take my 4 month old baby. I would definitely recommend the class to anyone who has children or looks after children.
Sky are always looking for ways to better support their staff and Parents@Sky Network offers support and benefits to staff who are parents. I came across Mini First Aid through a Facebook promotion and there was a huge demand for the Infant and Child First Aid class which was shared on our internal and external social channels. The communication and organisation of the event was excellent - Sarah-Lou was professional, engaging and even injected some parent style humour! The class was interactive and educational - everyone took something away from it including much more confidence in dealing with any emergencies which could arise with their little ones. The feedback received on the back of it was amazing! It was a great success and hopefully something we can do again, and potentially roll out to other sites in the UK. Thank you Mini First Aid, you were a pleasure to deal with!
The Mini First Aid Class (filmed for ITVBe) was a fantastic class, both Arg and I found it a really good and informative session
We have seen hundreds of clients go through the Infection Control Course and heard nothing but positive feedback. They were able to do everything in their own time and now have the ability to promote their certificate/badge to all current and future customers which has helped them secure both venues and new clients. I would highly recommend anyone that is running a children's activities business to complete this course.
‘Excellent course well delivered. Alison has a wealth of knowledge and communicates it well. I attended in Wokingham with my teenage daughter. Would recommend to others.’
Today I attended Alison’s mini first aid course and I really enjoyed it. She covered everything you need to know to keep your little ones and other babies and children safe if anything were to happen! Even though Alison’s only just started out she came across very confident and professional and answered our questions very well, she even said if wanted to ask her anything after the mini course to email her and she will reply with an answer. Very laid back and relaxed with a cuppa tea and chocolates ???? thank you Alison! I highly recommend!!
One afternoon, we were enjoying a day out in the sunshine and had stopped to feed our daughter of 7 months, she’s just started solid food and we’d been giving her sliced banana to chew on. On this particular day, she inhaled a small piece and began to choke. I quickly remembered Martin’s words, put her in the proper hold, bottom in the air and one forceful strike between her shoulder blades dislodged the banana and although she was shocked, she was able to breathe again and I can’t tell you how relieved we felt! It may have only been 10 seconds in which she couldn’t breathe but it was terrifying. Had I not had the training from Martin and Mini First Aid, I cannot even begin to imagine how differently the situation could have turned out. In fact, I’d go as far to say that the training I received enabled me to save our daughter’s life.
Today I attended the first aid course with Alison as the trainer. Alison went step by step covering everything we needed to know from cpr, to choking to burns etc etc. 2 hours out of your day to help you with things you may one day come across (hopefully not) is defo worth £20. Alison also supplies chocolates ???? she has also offered to help after the session with any questions or queries we may have. Thankyou x
I found this session very helpful, it felt relaxed and was completely relevant to the age of my baby. Would highly recommend the session to parents needing some first aid awareness.
My 4 month old and I attended Alison’ s class in Farnborough and thought it was brilliant. A great reminder of some basic first aid, as well as all the need-to-know essentials on choking and baby CPR. Alison was really friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. I was so pleased to have found an affordable course that was informal and short enough to be able to bring baby with me.
It was a pleasure meeting Kate and Jacky from Mini First Aid and being taught what to do in case of an emergency. Learning CPR and what to do when a child is choking is invaluable. Obviously, I hope I never had to use the things I learned in today’s class, but horrible things happen and knowing these techniques can really make a huge difference. The class was fun and accessible given the seriousness of the topic. I would highly recommend everyone doing it.
Great session, concise and informative. Very flexible as well – I was able to take my 4 month old along with me which was very helpful. It was a relaxed environment and the session moved at a good pace. Thank you.
There are a gazillion things I never seem to get around to doing (fixing the broken blind in our bedroom, getting some photos printed of ‘the baby’ who is almost two but still doesn’t exist on our walls, pinning down the coffee date I’ve been promising my neglected friend via WhatsApp for at least 6 months…) BUT this morning I finally got my arse in gear and ticked off something from my ‘Really Must Do’ list by attending a First Aid class designed specifically for parents, grandparents and carers of babies and young children. It took just two hours out of my morning and covered a whole host of stuff including what to do if a child is choking, how to deal with burns/breaks/bleeding and the basics of life-saving CPR for kids.
"We are so glad we have done a Mini First Aid class. We enjoyed the class, found it really useful and feel so much more prepared in the build up to having our baby.”
We attended the Mini First Aid class when I was pregnant last year. Fast forward to now and my baby girl is 8months old and my training has just saved her life! My daughter began silently choking on a piece of toast and had started to turn purple, because of my training I remained as calm as can be in that situation and was able to get her in the correct position and give her some black blows and retrieve the nasty culprit. £20 I paid for that course, it was the best £20 I ever spent because my daughter's life is priceless. I know for a fact before attending the course I would have just panicked and screamed, not knowing the best course of action. Thank you so much Mini First Aid, you saved my daughter's life and for that I'm eternally grateful.
A really informative class with relaxed environment! Hosted by Alison who was really knowledgeable, professional approach but with a lovely demeanor so you feel at ease asking questions if needs be! Would highly recommend.
Went to class run by Alison Gibbs in Farnborough last night as I now have an 8 months old granddaughter. Alison’s presentation was clear, detailed and precise. She answered all questions and was willing to provide any extra information needed. I came away from the class feeling reassured that I would know how to cope in an emergency situation. I also bought the first aid kit and 2 animal gel packs that freeze for head injuries. I would recommend this class to all prospective parents, parents, and grandparent. Thank you, Alison.
I cannot recommend Mini First Aid enough. Kate ran a private class for me and my 11 year old daughter in the comfort of our own home, which was perfect especially as my babies are due any day now. My daughter and I feel much more confident in knowing what to do in a range of emergency situations and I also got some extra twin tips from Kate as a fellow twin Mum! It's such an important life skill that every parent and carer should have so I would urge you to book a Mini First Aid course today.
