We’re Holly & Jill, two sisters with a passion for child safety and injury prevention.

Safe Beginnings First Aid is the leading provider of infant and toddler-focused safety courses in Canada. Since late 2016, we’ve trained over 9,000 parents, caregivers and professionals with essential lifesaving skills. We offer online courses across Canada, and in-person courses in the Vancouver, BC area (and occasionally beyond!)

Our mission is to make lifesaving education accessible.
That’s why we offer our courses both online and in-person.

Our popular Infant/Child CPR, Choking and Injury Prevention course is available in a convenient online at-your-own-pace video-based format. Perfect for those who are unable to attend our in-person courses due to location, timing, physical reasons, anxiety or otherwise.

If you’re in the Greater Vancouver, BC area, we offer public courses all across the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Sea-to-Sky areas on a monthly basis. We also regularly tour the Okanagan, Interior, Vancouver Island and Sunshine Coast areas of British Columbia.

Feel more comfortable in your own environment? If you’re in the Greater Vancouver, BC area, we have limited availability for private courses in the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Sea-to-Sky areas. Host a course in your own space, and we’ll bring everything to you!

  • 5 star review  Great and thorough training! Holly has been fabulous and went above and beyond to help us prepare for the safety of our child. The CPR and car seat safety lesson gave us reassurance and answered many of our questions. Highly recommended not just for first time parents but all parents and grandparents.

  • 5 star review  We completed the CPR course today and left feeling confident with the skills we took away with us. Holly knows her stuff and is passionate about what she does. She teaches in a way that is straight to the point and easy to follow. I have already recommended this to my mom friends and will continue to do so!

  • positive review  As a first time grandma I am so glad I went. Very informative and not just about infant first aid. I left feeling more confident in being able to assist with CPR and what to do with adults/babies choking. Everyone should start with this course.

  • 5 star review  I took Holly's course at BuyBuyBaby in Langley today. What a great course! Holly is a fantastic instructor. She spoke clearly and in a way that everyone could understand. She was very thorough and used real life examples to help us understand what she was teaching. I have children of my own and work with babies/toddlers on a daily basis. I feel confident knowing I could help with CPR or choking on any person now. I also loved how she covered other safety topics like car seat safety and home safety. I highly recommend anyone who's around children to take this course!

  • 5 star review  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. ♡
