    Thank you Tiny Hearts

    Loved the course ran by Rach on Saturday - extremely informative but also just focused on the things that we as new (and impending) parents need to know. Rach is a very engaging and entertaining speaker and perfectly balanced the serious side with some personal anecdotes. Would highly recommend for any new parents or caregivers. I feel so much more confident going into parenthood with this toolkit of information from the Tiny Hearts team :)

    Baby and Child First Aid - PUBLIC COURSE

    I have done first aid courses in the past but I have never left them feeling as confident as I did after this one. Rach was a fantastic teacher and explained things in an easy-to-understand way without complicating things. The course was interactive, fun, and highly informative. I will be recommending this course to all of my friends and family. Thanks, Tiny Hearts!

    Everything you need to know

    Thank you for the session! It was everything we needed to know plus more. I also appreciated that the class didn’t feel rushed despite getting through so much, it was very engaging and hands on! Would recommend it to anyone looking :)

    Tiny Hearts First Aid

    Thanks Rach,
    Excellent content and delivery.
    Expecting our first bub is that little bit less daunting knowing what to do, who to call and when in the event there is ever an emergency.

    Great Course Feeling Confident in Emergency

    Great class covering baby & child. Both my partner and I have completed CPR courses in the past but there was never a focus on infants and children. This is a great course to help us feel more confident in an emergency situation with our infant. The last topics were a little rushed and the room was too small for the amount of people but at the end of the day we walked away with a very strong overview of CPR and choking with a light overThey can't cover everything in detail in a half day course so I feel where they went deep (CPR & choking) is the right area.
