I attended this course a few months ago and found it very interesting. I learned a lot and was even able to bring my 5 month old along. Today my daughter ended up choking on some food and it surpised me at how easily I was able to stay calm pick her up and do what I was taught. The food was out in seconds and she was a littlw shook up but okay. I dont even want to think about what would have happened if I did not part take in this class. I always thought Iwas supposed to just tap their backs, thankfully I was taught the proper way. So again thankyou, tonight you helped me save my daughter. ♡
I attended the 2 hour course in Salmon Arm yesterday. I am the Nana of infants and toddlers and was grateful to be able to attend a course in our community. It was most helpful! The course moved at a good pace, with time for questions and practice. Jill was knowledgable, energetic and respectful. I recommend this course.
I took the four hour infant/toddler first aid and CPR class and it was awesome! It gave me confidence knowing that if an emergency situation arose with my little ones, I would know what to do (rather than panic!). Thank you!
We organized for a private class for 16 (mixture of new parents, expectant parents, & grandparents) and after having some difficulty getting an indoor space large enough we decided to hold it outside under some canopies in our yard. Holly was very responsive throughout the whole planning process on email, arrived on time, and was very personable and professional. Our group had a great time, learned tons, and came away feeling much more confident in our abilities to handle an emergency whether it was for an infant or an adult. I'd highly recommend Holly and Safe Beginnings. For us, booking a private session for a larger group made it much more cost effective for everyone.
I took Safe Beginning's First Aid course specifically for doulas over the weekend. Jill is obviously very knowledgeable and relayed her expertise in an easy to follow and practical manner. There was lots of practical skills taught and we also had the opportunity to practice on each other and infant dolls. It was a great course and when I need to recertify, I'll look to Safe Beginnings first!
Excellent! Highly recommend this class. Up to date information and baby friendly environment. Thank you.
Great course! Needed the refresher, highly recommended! Jill Colpitts was very knowledgeable and helpful! Thanks Jill.
We wanted to learn some basic first aid skills before the arrival of our first baby, and Holly and Safe Beginnings First Aid class was exactly what we were looking for. She covers the basics from CPR to safe preventative practices around the house, and has excellent cues and descriptions to help you remember the tips, skills and techniques. I would recommend this to anyone with kids, expecting children, or wanting a refresher on first aid skills.
I hosted a private course (4 hour infant and child first aid) and Holly was our instructor. She was phenomenal! The information was highly valuable and I would strongly recommend every parent and caregiver take a course through Safe Beginnings.
My husband and I took the course this past week at Buy Buy Baby in Langley. Holly was very personable and professional and covered a lot of relevant information in the 2 hours. I found her very knowledgable, often citing current research and standards while also drawing on her own experience as a mom. I had re-taken my WorkSafe BC OFA Level 1 last year but wanted something more focused on infant care as we are expecting our first soon. I'm really glad we took this course. I found the explanations really resonated for me and the practicality was appreciated. Holly went over and above, we received an email info package before the course so I didn't feel pressure to take notes and remember everything. I would definitely recommend taking this course!
After taking this course we feel much better equipped to safely welcome our new baby into the world 🙂
Excellent course and instructor, highly recommended!
My husband and I attended the infant/toddler CPR course and found it extremely helpful. Holly was a wealth of knowledge and covered a variety of topics. I felt well-informed rather than overwhelmed. I would highly recommend the course to any couple with young children and/or caregivers. Worth every penny!
This course was extremely beneficial, and I encourage anyone who spends time around infants & children (all you aunties & uncles & friends) to take this course! Yes for safety for the little ones but honestly for your own peace of mind too! I feel SO much more comfortable knowing that I am now educated enough to be helpful and just know the right steps to take during emergency situations. I learned far more than just cpr - the instructor was so great! Highly recommend!
We took the Infant/Child CPR course with Jill. The course was excellent! Jill is a great teacher and delivered tons of great information in the two hours we had with her. Would definitely recommend!
My husband and I are first time parents and heard great things about Holly. We live in downtown and chose to pick her in north van from the great reviews. We are so happy we got our training from her. She is very knowledgeable and professional and at the same time fun and personable. I particularly loved that she is a mother herself so she gave examples of things in the house we should be aware of and shared examples and stories of things her daughter has done that can be a risk. She flagged little things that we don't think of. I learned so much and feel as prepared as one can welcoming a little one into our world and home. I highly recommend her. Great class for couples and friends to do together.
Found the infant CPR class to be very informative. It answered all my concerns and questions about what to do if my future baby or niece is choking or unconscious. I would highly recommend this class to any new parents, current parents, parents to be, grandparents, or anyone babysitting a small child! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My husband and I attended this course as expecting parents and found it very informative and useful. We would definitely recommend any new or expecting parent to take this course!
I just finished the Safe Beginnings First Aid corse with Jill. She was clear and concise. The corse was easy to follow. Enough practice was done throughout the class to allow for memory of the content to form.
Great class. Well laid out curriculum and well taught. Very thorough but not overwhelming. Highly recommend!
