Baby-led weaning a guide to How, What and When

Do you know how to recognise when your baby is ready for solid foods, and when to leave a solely puree diet behind? When is it the right time to start weaning?  The session led by Jill Wheatcroft, Lecturer in Child Health will look at which foods at which stage, and why some should be avoided.  You will learn about the advantages and disadvantages of baby-led weaning, how it works and how it differs from the so called ‘traditional’ method of feeding children solids. The session will also explore how to encourage your child to experiment with various foods and there’ll be time for informal discussions about favourite recipes for weaning and your questions.

This session is part of our Feed your Children Well programme which supports developing positive eating habits.

Babies are welcome at this session.

Disclosure & Barring Service Check

£77.00

Why is this necessary?

Checking that the person you are going to leave your child with is suitable to work with children must be an essential element of your recruitment process. The Disclosure and Barring Check previously known as CRB/Criminal Records Bureau, helps employers make safer recruitment decisions.

If you are an employer?

Riverside Cares will confirm to you when the Disclosure and Barring Certificate has been issued to your Nanny, who will then be in a position to show you the certificate. Please note: To process a DBS check and references we will require your name and contact details and those of your Nanny and confirmation of your Nanny’s permission to carry out the check, as we will not be able to carry out the check without the consent of the person being checked.

img-dbs-shutterstock_228936508

Want your own check?

If you would like a check carried out for your personal use we can carry out a check on your behalf. Nannies, babysitters, applying for an Ofsted Registration and carers for the elderly and those who would like to give peace of mind to employers and potential employers can apply in their own right with Riverside Cares.

With each purchase of a DBS you will receive a £7.00 voucher that can be applied to any of Riverside Cares courses’ both on line and in our training room settings.

We’ll make contact shortly after purchase to collect your information.

Please complete the application form carefully (we suggest mapping out details before uploading them or filling in the form), Unfortunately once the application has been submitted changes cannot be made on that application and any new or further application submitted will be considered a new application which will incur a new full fee.

Epilepsy Training And Responding to Seizures For Schools and Early Years: 3 Hrs In Your Setting

Supporting Children With Epilepsy. 3-hour course £280 for up to 20 staff 

Launch Price Autumn 2018

This vital course teaches what epilepsy is and the necessary skills required to look after a child with this condition. You will learn how to provide any additional day to day support which might be required, as well as learning how to respond in an emergency situation.

You will be taught about the different types of epilepsy and understand the impact they each can have on individual children.

The course will explore the various medication programmes children may be prescribed and the impact these may have.

Additional travel expenses may apply outside of London postcodes

Small groups of up to 8 students can be taught in our training room at Westferry

Why This Course Matters

The Children and Families Act 2014 introduced the legal obligation that schools must provide appropriate care for children with medical conditions. Riverside Cares’ epilepsy training will ensure that staff will confidently understand the condition and have the appropriate knowledge to manage seizures. The training course is designed to support a School in fulfilling its responsibility to provide equality of access to learning and to ensure all children have the opportunity to be included in all school activities.

One in every 220 children will have a diagnosis of epilepsy. That’s an average of one child with epilepsy in every primary school, and 5 in every secondary school ( Epilepsy Action).

This course is suitable for you/your staff if you:

  • Work in an Early Years Setting
  • Work as an ‘at home’ childcarer
  • Childminder

Infant to preschool Nutrition: Setting your child up for a healthy approach to food

From: £75.00

Are you trying to interpret the latest findings from Public Health England to ensure that you are not setting your child up for a life of obesity? Recent studies have shown the frightening level that sugar loaded and fat loaded snacks are informing children’s diets.

Finding the balance and finding a way to tweak a diet to make it healthier can sometimes take a very small number of steps. Join us for a small intimate session with friends, work colleagues or family to learn about children’s dietary needs and requirements and how you can help set your child up for a healthy approach to food in adulthood.

Sessions can be arranged for daytime, evening or at the weekend and can be delivered in a family home, community centre or setting, at a time, on a day and in a location of your choice.

A session can be for as little as four participants to a maximum of twelve. If you are a larger group no problem we can create a bespoke session. Our team frequently teaches nursery and school groups and we would be happy to work with your local Early Years setting too!

Managing Challenging Behaviour Confidently: 75 Minute, Small Group Session For Parents and At-Home Childcarers

£20.00

Thursday 15 November 2018

10.45am to 12.00pm

Are you having to deal with challenging or difficult behaviour from your child or children you look after?

Let’s face it, every child has one of those moments when tempers flare which can quickly morph into them throwing, kicking or shouting.  In the midst of it, you can feel quite helpless and having the tools to react appropriately can be invaluable.  You can learn how to diffuse a situation and support a child to develop and gain the skills they need to regulate their behaviour.

We’ll be talking about effective strategies that you can use and how you feel when you are at the receiving end of the challenging behaviour, whether it is refusing to wear certain clothes or it is a full-blown tantrum. We’ll explore how you feel when the tantrum is in full flight and how you can help a child to regulate their behaviour.

This practical 75 minute, small group session looks at strategies you can adapt to promote positive behaviour in children aged one to eight years.
