Frequently Asked Questions

Are babies welcome?

In public courses, pre-mobile (not yet crawling) babies are welcome to join you. Our courses are breastfeeding-friendly. We cannot guarantee the safety of the venues for mobile children, and request mobile children do not join to limit distraction for other participants.

  • 5 star review  I took Holly's course at BuyBuyBaby in Langley today. What a great course! Holly is a fantastic instructor. She spoke clearly and in a way that everyone could understand. She was very thorough and used real life examples to help us understand what she was teaching. I have children of my own and work with babies/toddlers on a daily basis. I feel confident knowing I could help with CPR or choking on any person now. I also loved how she covered other safety topics like car seat safety and home safety. I highly recommend anyone who's around children to take this course!

  • 5 star review  Great and thorough training! Holly has been fabulous and went above and beyond to help us prepare for the safety of our child. The CPR and car seat safety lesson gave us reassurance and answered many of our questions. Highly recommended not just for first time parents but all parents and grandparents.

  • 5 star review  Great course. I've taken a lot of first aid courses over the years and found Holly's teaching style to be much more memorable and relevant. The way she explains things and breaks it down is straight forward, tangible and appeals to your common sense, she also gives you cues to help you remember! Loved the course and even better loved that it was at home with friends!
