NDNA has been working with the Department for Education to put together examples of excellent first aid practice in nurseries as part of its process in forming proposals to step up numbers of practitioners trained in first aid. These case studies are designed to help and inspire any UK nursery or childcare setting in benchmarking or reviewing their own policies and procedures.
We also have a comprehensive Manager’s Guide to Paediatric First Aid Training, which is full of tips and best practice.
Here are the twelve case studies for you to download and two videos to watch:
