12 hour Care for Children for Professional Care Providers

  • In the UK professional child care providers such as Nannies, Nursery Carers, and Childminders must complete a suitable paediatric First Aid Course at regular intervals.
  • Through the use of the Instructor Led Approach the Emergency First Response 12 Hour Care for Children programme meets regulatory requirements necessary for such a first aid course.


The course includes both primary care (CPR) and secondary care (first aid) skills. The primary care portion of the course prepares the rescuer to render aid to an infant or child with a life-threatening emergency such as choking or cardiac arrest. Secondary care focuses on developing secondary patient care skills and building the rescuer’s confidence to render first aid to an infant or child in need when emergency medical services are either delayed or unavailable. The Care for Children course content is based on guidelines from the Paediatric Working Group of ILCOR.
