Children Safety Programs

Caring for children is a special responsibility, and because you love children, you give your very best. You know that children need safe, happy environments to live, learn and grow. But would you know how to:

  • Make your home a safer place?
  • Prevent injuries before they happen? 
  • Deal with a choking infant or child, and provide other first aid basics?

Now, learning how to prevent and respond to common childhood emergencies is easier than ever before.

Child Care First Aid is an interactive course that will teach you how to make your home a safer place, and help you handle childhood emergencies with confidence.

Licensed child care programs - whether home-based child care associated with a licensed agency, or centre-based child care - have to meet and maintain provincial standards. These standards are set out in the Day Nurseries Act. The standards help program operators to meet the health, safety, and developmental needs of the children in their care, including First Aid and CPR requirements.
