Mini First Aid trainer for North Warwickshire, Coventry, Tamworth & surrounding areas. Having worked in busy environments as a retail manager for over 10 years, Emily has come face to face with many situations where first aid has been critical in helping members of the public. Now Mum to two young children, Emily is passionate about working with parents & carers to give them the skills and confidence to know what to do in the event of an accident or emergency.
Hi, my name is Miranda, and I am mum to my gorgeous two year old daughter Esme. Along with being kept busy with my little one, I am also a qualified teacher, and I currently work in schools supporting pupils with aspects of their social, emotional and mental health and learning needs. When I had my daughter, I was keen to gain some basic first aid skills and understanding so I signed up to a Mini First Aid class and it’s one of the best things I have done! Not only has it given me the skills and confidence to deal with emergency situations with children but it has developed my passion for first aid too. I have since gone on to become a fully qualified first aid trainer, and I’m excited to be working with Emily and looking forward to delivering Mini First Aid classes to parents, grandparents and children!
It was a pleasure meeting Kate and Jacky from Mini First Aid and being taught what to do in case of an emergency. Learning CPR and what to do when a child is choking is invaluable. Obviously, I hope I never had to use the things I learned in today’s class, but horrible things happen and knowing these techniques can really make a huge difference. The class was fun and accessible given the seriousness of the topic. I would highly recommend everyone doing it.
I have just attended this class and it thought it was fantastic. I can’t believe I have a two year old and it took me until now to learn some potentially life saving skills. I have come away feeling more confident and so much better placed to deal with something as common as choking, for example. I would certainly recommend this class to anyone especially those with children in their care. It is a friendly and welcoming environment and reasonably priced too, you will take away truly invaluable skills.
Sky are always looking for ways to better support their staff and Parents@Sky Network offers support and benefits to staff who are parents. I came across Mini First Aid through a Facebook promotion and there was a huge demand for the Infant and Child First Aid class which was shared on our internal and external social channels. The communication and organisation of the event was excellent - Sarah-Lou was professional, engaging and even injected some parent style humour! The class was interactive and educational - everyone took something away from it including much more confidence in dealing with any emergencies which could arise with their little ones. The feedback received on the back of it was amazing! It was a great success and hopefully something we can do again, and potentially roll out to other sites in the UK. Thank you Mini First Aid, you were a pleasure to deal with!
"We are so glad we have done a Mini First Aid class. We enjoyed the class, found it really useful and feel so much more prepared in the build up to having our baby.”
I cannot recommend Mini First Aid enough. Kate ran a private class for me and my 11 year old daughter in the comfort of our own home, which was perfect especially as my babies are due any day now. My daughter and I feel much more confident in knowing what to do in a range of emergency situations and I also got some extra twin tips from Kate as a fellow twin Mum! It's such an important life skill that every parent and carer should have so I would urge you to book a Mini First Aid course today.
There are a gazillion things I never seem to get around to doing (fixing the broken blind in our bedroom, getting some photos printed of ‘the baby’ who is almost two but still doesn’t exist on our walls, pinning down the coffee date I’ve been promising my neglected friend via WhatsApp for at least 6 months…) BUT this morning I finally got my arse in gear and ticked off something from my ‘Really Must Do’ list by attending a First Aid class designed specifically for parents, grandparents and carers of babies and young children. It took just two hours out of my morning and covered a whole host of stuff including what to do if a child is choking, how to deal with burns/breaks/bleeding and the basics of life-saving CPR for kids.
Without question the wisest £20 I’ve spent on our children. Emily made the more grueling topics approachable and covered a huge amount efficiently in the two hours. I hope not to need much of what I learned today but feel more confident about what to do should I be faced with a medical emergency. Thank you!
I attended a course ran by Emily yesterday. The course was exceptionally helpful at updating my knowledge of baby first aid and CPR. A very hands on experience with the use of baby and child mannequins which I found to be beneficial at backing up the theory side of the mini course. Covered the main concern areas of first aid and CPR, including choking. Emily was friendly, helpful and was able to answer questions posed. Highly recommended and highlighted the importance of knowing these life skills if you have close links to children.
We completed the course when our baby was tiny and now am very thankful we did. At 8 months old now and into everything, he started to choke on an ice cube. He went red, couldn't cough and was starting to go blue. The invaluable advice learnt at the course most certainly helped to save his life! Thank you Mini First Aid x
We attended the Mini First Aid class when I was pregnant last year. Fast forward to now and my baby girl is 8months old and my training has just saved her life! My daughter began silently choking on a piece of toast and had started to turn purple, because of my training I remained as calm as can be in that situation and was able to get her in the correct position and give her some black blows and retrieve the nasty culprit. £20 I paid for that course, it was the best £20 I ever spent because my daughter's life is priceless. I know for a fact before attending the course I would have just panicked and screamed, not knowing the best course of action. Thank you so much Mini First Aid, you saved my daughter's life and for that I'm eternally grateful.
The Mini First Aid Class (filmed for ITVBe) was a fantastic class, both Arg and I found it a really good and informative session
