      The Legal First Aid Requirements – Early Years Providers

      At least one person who has a current paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises and available at all times when children are present and must accompany children on outings. Childminders and any assistant who might be in sole charge of the children for any period of time must hold a current paediatric first aid certificate. Paediatric first aid training must be relevant for workers caring for young children and where relevant, babies. Providers should take into account the number of children, staff and layout of premises to ensure that a paediatric first aider is able to respond to emergencies quickly.
