  • Teaching dates available throughout the year
  • This course complies with both the Ofsted voluntary and compulsory registration requirements
  • Fully certificated for 3 years
  • Suitable for early years settings, child-minders, creches, schools and anyone who wishes to equip themselves with this vital knowledge
  • Idea course for staff undertaking the responsibilities associated with being a First Aider in an early years setting.
  • Excellent choice for Early Years practitioners who require a Paediatric First Aid qualification which meets the requirements of the EYFS.

Attendees will be required to demonstrate first aid procedures as they would in a real work environment, for example providing CPR to a casualty on the floor

Managing Challenging Behaviour Confidently, Live Online Learning with Jill Wheatcroft: 60 Minutes

£7.50

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.

How does this Live Online Session work?

The session will be held via Zoom video conferencing. We’ll send you a login link to join which you can open on your laptop, mobile smartphone, computer or tablet. You’ll be taught by Jill who will be delivering this session to you live. She will be offering advice, really useful tips and strategies grounded in a wealth of underpinning knowledge, and you will have opportunities to ask her questions and share thoughts with each other. The reason why virtual classes are so popular is that you won’t need to leave your home or where ever you happen to be to access this class. You will be able to pose questions and fully take part.  If you have a little one with you this class will also work perfectly, you simply mute the microphone so you can relax and enjoy the session. You can also switch off your video camera and simply view Jill. When the class is over the session will end and you will click your ‘end meeting’ button to leave the session.

 

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!
