Did you know that all childminders are required to complete a 2 day paediatric first aid course covering all manner of topics including baby CPR.
I recently refreshed my training with St Johns Ambulance. Apparently the first aid emergency that parents are most worried about is their baby not breathing, yet only 1 in 4 know what to do. They have produced a catchy tune with some playful nursery rhyme characters to help make baby CPR unforgettable. Be sure to share it with friends and family.
This is a really interesting story in today’s news. Here at Aston Childcare, as well as adult led play, I ensure the children have lots of free unstructured play time.
Do you think children spend enough time ‘just’ playing?
The start of a new year and back to work.
The playroom has undergone a good clean, the high chairs are back out, the nappy changing area set up, the book shelves organised, the toys cleaned and set out, the carpets and furniture vacuumed and vaxed, the garden tidied and tired outdoor toys hosed down and cleaned all ready for a new year of fun and play. Happy New Year everyone!
Do your little ones watch Peppa Pig and do you think there is any truth in this?!
