First Aid Courses and New Parent Workshops

As a company we know that better informed parents make better parents who are also able to make better decisions for their families. While we originally started the company with programmes focused on the child with the parent present, we realised there is also a need for some courses just for parents and carers.

This is why we are delighted to announce the launch of two new offerings for expectant parents or parents of young babies; Baby Foundations and KeepaBeat Baby and Toddler First Aid classes.

Both courses bring the research-based ethos to their workshops and are designed to help you in parenting knowledge and decision making. Scroll down the page to find out what they are all about.

Covering baby/toddler CPR, baby/toddler unconsciousness, baby/toddler choking, burns, head injuries, febrile convulsions and broken bones.

Helping you deal with life's little dramas.

Baby Foundations secondary logo

Having a baby is an incredibly exciting and special time, but it can also be anxious, scary and overwhelming too. You will have lots to think about from what to put on your birth plan to what to buy for your baby. So where do you start? Baby Foundations will support you from the moment of confirmed pregnancy to the birth of your baby and up to 3 months new.

About Us

Paediatric First Aid Courses for Parents and carers of Babies and Toddlers  

The first minutes of a first aid ‘situation’ are the most critical, these are the seconds you have to at very least prevent a situation from getting worse.

After dialing 999, a paramedic will talk you through the actions you practice while waiting for the ambulance. Wouldn’t it be better if you had already practiced and the para was just coaching you?

That’s what a First Aid course gives you, the basic skills you need to carry you over those first crucial minutes. KeepaBeat First Aid takes this serious subject and teaches it in a fun, interactive and memorable way so that you have that vital knowledge that could be invaluable to your family. 



We only conduct the course to small groups; parents at one of our workshops or maybe everyone in your family joining a session at home. We have enough equipment for everyone and make sure in 2 hours you get hands-on practice of CPR and relieving choking. Learning in a small group means you can get coaching, build confidence and get the chance to ask questions and improve your skills.

You will learn many topics such as CPR, unconsciousness, choking, burns, head injuries, febrile convulsions and broken bones to keep your baby and toddler safe

Fully accredited instructors, high quality props and interactive sessions allow you to get the most out of a KeepaBeat First Aid session and ensure you have the chance to memorise these life-saving skills.

Pop over to our Find A Class page to book onto one of our workshops or to contact your local KeepaBeat First Aid Trainer to book a family session at your home.

Stars yellow 2 Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2: “Great course. Both me and my partner attended this course and found that we left each class feeling more informed and prepared for parenthood. It really helped our anxieties about what's to come. Would highly recommend and think its great value for money too!” Katie Westwood

Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2:A brilliant course. I found out so much information I had no idea about and it answered questions that I didn't even know I was worrying about. I think the best thing I can say about it is I was sad when it was over!”  Louise Angell

Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Fantastic course. I went when I was heavily pregnant (35/40) with my first baby when things were just starting to get real in my mind! The information I learnt calmed my anxieties about labour, breastfeeding and the very early days of motherhood. My husband attended the classes when work allowed and found them valuable. We both enjoyed chatting to the other expecting parents and getting involved in the group activities. I would definitely recommend.” Lizzie Carter

Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Fantastic course, I learnt a lot about pregnancy and birth that I did not know about. I highly recommend the course.” Lottie Anne Cuthbert

Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Stars yellow 2Me and my husband attended the first of Imogen's Winchester courses. We thought it was excellent, very informative, great value for money, and gave us a great base from which to begin our journey into the baffling world of parent-hood! Imogen is so knowledgeable and her passion for all things 'baby' really comes across.
