    Brilliant course for parents

    Love to hear this feedback, thank you Leah!

    Suitable for first time parents pre-child

    My husband attended the course. We have a 2yr old and a 4 month old. He has attended BLS years ago and felt a lot of this was already covered in that. He also said that having a 2yr old already we had experienced many of the scenarios already. He did take a few things from it but overall felt as though he didn't get much from it unfortunately and that the presenter just read out of the book you get so you could just do that instead of attending

    Hi there,

    Thank you for taking the time to share your husband's experience with our course. We truly appreciate your honest feedback, as it helps us understand how we can better serve our participants.

    I'm sorry to hear that your husband didn't find the course as beneficial as you’d hoped. We understand the importance of delivering content that is both engaging and informative, especially for individuals with previous training experience.

    To address your concerns, we'll be reviewing our course materials and instructional methods to ensure that we are providing unique and valuable insights.

    Thank you for being a part of the Tiny Hearts community. If you have any further questions or if there's anything else we can do to improve your experience, please don't hesitate to reach out.

    Best regards,
    Tiny Hearts

    Excellent First Aid course

    My husband and I (32 weeks at the time) attended the baby and child first aid course in person and absolutely loved it. It was my first time attending a first aid course of any nature, let alone an infant and child specific course, and at no point did I feel overwhelmed or confused by the information provided. The information was delivered clearly, detailed yet not overwhelming, confidently and at the perfect pace.
    The hands on practice really helped too. Being in a room with about 50 other people I thought we would be overlooked and not receive feedback during the hands on exercises, but Rach lead the class so well that she was able to give individual feedback, which gave us confidence.
    1 week on, I still feel confident in the knowledge that I've learnt, backed up with the physical first aid book that we received on the day with further information.
    Thank you so much, Tiny Hearts!
