Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF)

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework requires all early years providers in England to have at least one person who has a current and full Paediatric First Aid certificate on the premises and available at all times when children are present. Providers should also take into account the number of children, staff & layout of the premises and increase their paediatric first aid provision accordingly to ensure that a Paediatric First Aider is available to respond to emergencies quickly.
