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!

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.

So glad my husband and I took this course. Holly is an engaging instructor who is passionate about infant safety and was great at giving us time to practice techniques and understand the why behind what we were doing. Will definitely recommend this course to all my momma friends.

My husband and I took the course this past week at Buy Buy Baby in Langley. Holly was very personable and professional and covered a lot of relevant information in the 2 hours. I found her very knowledgable, often citing current research and standards while also drawing on her own experience as a mom. I had re-taken my WorkSafe BC OFA Level 1 last year but wanted something more focused on infant care as we are expecting our first soon. I'm really glad we took this course. I found the explanations really resonated for me and the practicality was appreciated. Holly went over and above, we received an email info package before the course so I didn't feel pressure to take notes and remember everything. I would definitely recommend taking this course!

My husband and I attended this course as expecting parents and found it very informative and useful. We would definitely recommend any new or expecting parent to take this course!

Really enjoyed this class! Brought up safety risks and tips we wouldn't have thought of. Highly 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!

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! I’m very happy I took this course.
