    Anytime is great, really! We have a big mix of caregivers in our classes – expecting parents anywhere from 16 weeks to 40 weeks, parents with new babies, grandparents and other family members, and parents with toddlers who want a refresher or are learning for the first time! There are pros and cons to joining a class while expecting:
    • If you join us while you’re expecting, most find it easier to focus on the content because they don’t have a baby with them (we allow pre-mobile babies in our classes).
    • The physical skills can be a bit more challenging if you’re pregnant (CPR, getting down to the ground to check for breathing, etc). We never push anyone to do something that’s physically strenuous, of course; so that’s why we do have a significant amount of pregnant attendees who are 37+ weeks.
    • If you’re pregnant, we recommend taking the class it before 34 weeks (if possible!) for comfort purposes, though, if you’re able to get into a class with space. We do recommend taking it while expecting, because the skills are relevant from birth.
    • If you’re working in a licensed child care facility: You would need the 8-hour Emergency Childcare First Aid course per the Ministry of Children and Family Development’s guidelines.
    • If you’re operating as a nanny for a family: check with the family before you register to see if this workshop is appropriate. We often have nannies and other caregivers take our 5-hour course.
    • Refunds may be requested if notice is given 48 hours or more ahead of the workshop/course start time.
    • With notice provided 24-48 hours (or more) ahead of the workshop/course start time, we can offer a transfer to a future workshop/course (given there is still space in the workshop/course the transfer is being requested for) upon request.
    • Out of respect for those who waitlist for our workshops/courses, transfers are not permitted within 24 hours of the workshop/course start time.
    • Any registration for a workshop/course where the attendee does not provide notice is considered forfeited.
