The Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid CPR onsite classroom course is designed to meet the training needs of child care providers in Oklahoma while also being a comprehensive resource for parents, grandparents, teachers, babysitters or anyone responsible for the safety of children. This is a classroom, Instructor-led course that teaches daycare providers to respond to and manage illnesses and injuries in a child or infant in the first few minutes until professional help arrives.
The Child Care Facilities Licensing Act defines programs that are required to be licensed. Each program has their own minimum licensing requirements for the protection of children’s health, safety and well-being. Requirements exist that cover child care centers, family child care homes and large child care homes, part-day programs, and school-age programs, summer day camps, residential child care facilities, and child placing agencies.
Why Daycare Workers Need CPR and First Aid Training
Health and safety training is critical for child care providers. Well-trained child care providers know how to reduce the risk of illness and injury to the children in their care. New federal requirements have named eleven health and safety training topics that will be required for child care providers.
As a child care provider, you should know what to look for in signs of a child being in a medical struggle. This could be anything from breathing issues to choking on small objects. You may need to administer CPR or stop an epileptic seizure. This class provides the necessary education and hand-on training to provide CPR and First Aid.
Sometimes it takes a while for medical personnel to respond at your site, and in those minutes, your CPR and First Aid training could mean the difference between life and death while waiting for help to arrive.
