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.

  • 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. ♡

    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  Took the 2 hr infant/cpr class on March 11th at Nurture Collective in Parksville. The material was comprehensive, taught at a good pace with opportunities for questions, and allowed for lots of repetition and practice to create muscle memory. The teacher was experienced, knowledgeable and able and answer all questions asked. My Mom attended and had physical limitations that required modifications of nearly procedures and advice was provided for each. I would definitely recommend this for caregivers of young children.

  • 5 star review  I did a course with Holly this weekend. She is very knowledgeable and the class is very engaging. I really enjoyed myself and left feeling like I had learned a lot. I would definitely recommend the non-certified CPR/choking course to any parents or anyone who will be working or spending a lot of time with kids!

    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  I took Safe Beginning's First Aid course specifically for doulas over the weekend. Jill is obviously very knowledgeable and relayed her expertise in an easy to follow and practical manner. There was lots of practical skills taught and we also had the opportunity to practice on each other and infant dolls. It was a great course and when I need to recertify, I'll look to Safe Beginnings first!

    5 star review  I took Holly’s 2 hour infant/toddler CPR course this past week and brought my 6 month old son with me. Holly was an amazing instructor that went over repetition and personal stories which helped to make the information memorable. I feel confident that I could help an adult or child who was in need of CPR or choking. Many different scenarios were brought up in the course as well as other safety aspects including prevention of poisoning, burns, baby sleep, car seat safety which I’m thankful to have learnt!

    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  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.

    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  This course was so great! And it couldn't have come at a better time for us. After the course, we hadn't been home for more than 10 minutes, when someone started banging on our door...my husband rushed to answer and there on our doorstep was a neighbour...and she was choking!!! My husband immediately put to use the choking technique that Holly literally just taught us and was able to dislodge the item. He saved her life! Our neighbour was home alone and started choking so she ran outside and was banging on all the doors on our floor hoping someone was home. He said if she had come the day before he wouldn't have had the confidence to help her. Thank you Holly!!! From us AND our neighbour!!

  • 5 star review  I just finished the Safe Beginnings First Aid corse with Jill. She was clear and concise. The corse was easy to follow. Enough practice was done throughout the class to allow for memory of the content to form.

    5 star review  I have taken 2 different CPR courses with Jill and she is a funny, engaging and compelling instructor who knows how to clearly present her material. 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! 🙂

    5 star review  I took the four hour infant/toddler first aid and CPR class and it was awesome! It gave me confidence knowing that if an emergency situation arose with my little ones, I would know what to do (rather than panic!). Thank you!
