  • 5 star review  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.

    5 star review  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.

    5 star review  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!

    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!

    5 star review  This was a wonderful course! There was a lot of information to learn in two hours but Holly made it easy to understand and fun. I feel much more confident starting solids with my baby now! Holly also checked my car seat for me after the class and discovered it has a recalled part! Iā€™m very happy I took this course.

    5 star review  Holly's 2 hour baby CPR course was excellent. I certified as a lifeguard in my teen's (about 20 years ago), so I thought that I would remember the basic first aid skills required to help in a first aid scenario. However, not only did I not remember some of the important skills, but things have changed(!!). Holly's course covers all of the key skills and allows you to try them out, so you get a sense of what it may be like to do it yourself. The information is useful and practical, and you can ask all the questions. Thanks to Holly, I am feeling much more confident about the pending arrival of our first-born.

Thanks also for the theory, visual demos, and hands-on practice - you made sure we got it right before we left! Always a great teacher, thanks so much! šŸ™‚

    5 star review  Holly did an awesome job teaching CPR and safety at the BuyBuyBaby in Langley. She was professional, yet friendly, and very thorough despite the class only being the 2 hour session. My husband and I walked away with a wealth of new knowledge and now feel comfortable in case of an emergency with young children and infants. Well worth the money.

    5 star review  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.

The course moved at a good pace, with time for questions and practice. Jill was knowledgable, energetic and respectful. I recommend this course.

How much space do you need for a course?

Can you accommodate a group larger than 16?

Get in touch and we’ll try to accommodate you! In some cases, running multiple courses may the best/most economical option.
