Whilst this course is recognised by Ofsted and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), and does meet Childcare Registration regulations, the requirements state that childcare settings must always have at least one fully qualified paediatric first aider available whenever children are present. Click here for details on the full, two-day Paediatric First Aid course.
