At Tops Day Nurseries, the safety of the children is paramount. Therefore the group is committed to ensuring that 100% of its staff that are included in the nursery ratios have paediatric first aid training.
Over the last few months, many of the staff have been attending first aid courses to ensure that they are compliant with the group's recently implemented policy.
Whilst the group's commitment is to have 100% of its staff paediatric first aid trained, it is also vital that the quality of the training provided is good.
The group wants to ensure that staff attend training with the most knowledgeable trainers who are able to answer staff questions and give them the confidence that they need to respond quickly in emergency situations.
Tops Day Nurseries has been working with ‘Poole Safety Services’, to provide paediatric first aid training to all staff for the last 3 years. Over this time they have proved to be the most knowledgeable provider that the group has used and staff have reported that attending the course has increased their competency in applying first aid.
As the Operations Director for Tops Day Nurseries, Amy Alderson has attended the first aid course to ensure that the training is effectively raising the quality and skills of the group's early years workforce.
The nursery group is also able to offer parents/carers the opportunity to attend the paediatric first aid course to help increase their own confidence with applying first aid. Those interested in attending one of the courses can speak to a nursery manager.
