    • Hi Trev

      I have sent you an email with details of costs for the Paediatric course. We can run the 12 hour course over 2,3,or 4 sessions, whichever you prefer.
      We have some availability for next week if you need it that soon.

      I have called Willow Play Village and left a message for you.

      All best regards

  2. I need to do my fisrt aid 12hours forpaediaric as i am in he process of becoming a childminder. Could you please tell me where and when the next course is

    • Hi Kate
      I’m afraid we don’t run public courses but ‘in fill’ individuals on group bookings. Unfortunately all our courses are currently full.
      If you don’t manage to find a course locally in the next few weeks contact us again, we may have some availability then.
      Best of luck

  3. Can someone contact me and tell me how i can book this pediatric first aid course and where they are located.

    • HI Zara
      I will contact you next week as discussed to let you know of availability on a course
      Best regards

      • Hi Chris
        I was just wondering whether or not you have found any courses that i can do yet?

        Many thanks

      • Hi Zara
        I had a note from myself to call you tomorrow. I’ve checked with all the Nurseies that have courses booked for before end of March but unfortunately nine have any spare places. Obviously we get courses booked every week so if anything becomes available in the Bristol area in next few weeks I’ll give you a call in case you still need place.

        Sorry I can’t help at the moment

        All best regards

  4. Good Afternoon. I am enquiring as to whether you do on site training please and was wondering if it would be possible to be forwarded some additional details in relation to this as I would have a group of people requiring this training. Many thanks

    • Good afternoon Kerry
      Thank you for your enquiry with regard to on site training for Paediatric First Aid courses.
      This is something we are very happy to offer and would come to your place of work on dates and at times to suit you.
      We offer two levels of Paediatric courses, Level 3 is the 12 hour course that is required by Ofsted registered Child Care Practitioners or Level 2 which is a 6 hour course and suitable for Parents, Au Pairs, Babysitters etc.

      We obviously run courses during the week but are happy to provide them at the weekend as we understand the difficulty if releasing staff for training during the week. We also offer evening courses if preferred.
      The price for the Level 3 Award, if someone books as an individual, is £75, but for a group booking we offer substantial discounts.

      If you would like further information please don’t hesitate to contact me either by return, by direct email – or by phone. 01823 668604 or 07891865018.

      I look forward to discussing this further with you.

      All best regards
