Course Resource Book + Pen
The Tiny Hearts First Aid Handbook is here!
This booklet was created by Tiny Hearts co-founders Nikki & Rach and our team of medical experts. As parents themselves, Nikki and Rach know how important it is to have the knowledge and skills to recognise and respond to emergency situations with our children confidently.
This will continue supporting your learning once you leave the classroom. It's a handy guide that will remind you of signs or symptoms at varying times in your parenting journey and the handy helper you need to refresh your knowledge.
This guide covers the topics you were taught in the course, plus additional important topics.
