First Aid for Nannies and Childminders

First Aid Training for Nannies and Childminders

First Aid Training for Nannies: Do you know what to do if the children you’re caring for have an accident or suddenly fall ill?

All nannies on Ofsted’s voluntary childcare register must hold an appropriate valid paediatric first-aid certificate when they register and it should be updated on a regular basis.

Government guidelines for childcarers state that first-aid training must:

  • Cater for practitioners caring for children in the absence of their parents
  • Be a minimum of 12 hours
  • Cover what to include in a first-aid kit for babies and children
  • Demonstrate resuscitation techniques using models of babies and children, and give practitioners a chance to practise on models of each age group
  • Include how to record accidents and incidents appropriately.
