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.

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!

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!

Love Holly’s energy level and her stories to keep the first aid class interesting! Thanks for coming all the way to Langley to teach a group of new moms who are just starting solids and needing to learn these life saving skills in case of emergencies ! 😍

Very informative class that was extremely benificial to have for any person around infants, babies or any person. CPR is much different than you might think and I am so happy to have learned the vital information. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are children welcome?
In privately hosted courses, children of any age are welcome to be present.
How much space do you need for a course?
Our courses require open floor space – large living rooms where furniture can be pushed to the edges of the room tend to work well. Common rooms in strata complexes work really well, too!
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.
Which course is right for me?
Let us know what your needs are, and we’re happy to recommend the best course for your current situation.
