Taking care of a baby or child is a huge responsibility and we feel it is essential that your helper is trained in first aid and CPR if she is taking on this role in your family.
We have been running this course at Annerley for many years and we have designed it to be tailor-made for Hong Kong families, with the environment, living conditions and weather in mind. Coupled with this is the particular relationships between helper, parent and child which makes this a very specific course.
Our instructors are well-versed in helper training and understand the myriad of misunderstandings, differences in culture, experience and education which can lead to breakdowns in communication, poor choices and ultimately a potentially dangerous or upsetting experience.
As well as the nuts and bolts of safety, First Aid and CPR, we talk about WHY we do certain things so that good choices can be made in similar, but not necessarily identical situations.
This is a four hour intensive course. Far from being just a lecture, our course is interactive, very hands-on and the students are expected to participate and practise. We have lots of equipment to facilitate this, including dedicated child-size CPR mannequins.
The content is much the same as our CPR course for parents but we adapt the language used so that we ensure everyone is accessing the information. The special position of the helper within the family is also taken into account, and a lot of focus is put on roles and responsibilities should an accident or emergency occur.
A must for all helpers who are taking care of babies and children. Even if they are mothers themselves or have previous childcare experience.
