We can absolutely do that! Send us an email following the workshop – we will verify your attendance in our system and provide you with a PDF proof of participation via email. Our contact information will be included in the event the requestor of the proof of participation needs to confirm with us that you indeed attended. Name, date of workshop, workshop name, and the name of the instructor will also be included.

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.

In most cases, no, you will likely need a more in-depth course.

  • 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.
