Would you like to EMPOWER YOUR CHILD with the knowledge and skills to handle emergency situations?
Our Kids Learn First Aid course series has been designed to make kids aged 9 - 12 years aware of potentially dangerous scenarios as they go about their daily lives, and teach them WHAT TO DO should the worst happen.
The THREE COURSES in this series address different themes and our expert tutors use age-appropriate scenarios to deliver each session:
SAFETY AT HOME
ROAD & CAR SAFETY
FIRST AID INSTRUCTOR
Debbie Gatt first became interested in First Aid during her time at the Girl Guides, and her accident-prone sister provided plenty of opportunities for Debbie to practice her skills! Debbie later went on to train and serve with the Emergency Fire and Rescue Unit, becoming a First Aid instructor and coordinator.
Now she is a First Aid instructor and First Aider with Emergency Malta, the leading private emergency ambulance company in Malta.
Debbie is passionate about helping parents and kids learn how to recognise when a First Aid intervention is required and how to administer it safely.
LIDWINA SCHEMBRI WISMAYER
Lidwina Schembri Wismayer is a mother of three and a qualified Occupational Therapist. After practicing as an OT for 19 years she decided to make a career change and pursue her passion for water and early childhood development.
She established Baby and Toddler Aquatics school Giggle’n’Splash in 2014, and feels that her expertise as an OT provides her with a solid foundation of knowledge and sensitivity which she transfers to her Baby and Toddler Aquatics classes. Lidwina also trains other swimming teachers in lifesaving techniques and water related first aid.
ENGINEER & ACCREDITED CARSEAT SAFETY ADVISOR
Rebecca started out as an industrial engineer but later found her true calling in science communication. She started studying car seat safety and started sharing her new knowledge with other families. Rebecca spent several years as a volunteer car seat safety advisor in a UK car seat safety Facebook support group, and travelled to the UK to receive an IOSH-accredited qualification in car seat safety.
Rebecca is a passionate car safety advocate and strives to dispel common misconceptions and clarify queries about what we should be doing to stay safe when travelling by car and when on the road.
How is this course series UNIQUE?
We're very proud to have a team of extremely experienced and knowledgeable experts who have designed this course series curriculum, which ensures a holistic and age-appropriate learning experience that resonates with children aged 9-12 years.
The sessions are delivered at a pace that aligns with the kids' age group, making the learning process engaging, interactive, and enjoyable.
We understand that children in this age range thrive when they can relate to the subject matter - our instructors use terminology and scenarios that specifically appeal to their interests and developmental stage. Real-life examples make up the basis of this course, making the concepts easily understandable and relatable to their everyday experiences.
What will kids ACHIEVE during the Kids Learn First Aid - SAFETY AT HOME course?
At age 9-12 years, kids become increasingly independent, spending plenty of time in the home environment with siblings or friends playing, trying their hand at meal preparation and using electronics.
This course will teach them skills that WILL STAY WITH YOUR KIDS THROUGHOUT THEIR LIVES, allowing them to become responsible and safety-conscious individuals. Here's what will be addressed:
Kids will develop a heightened awareness of potential dangers at home, enabling them to identify and avoid hazardous situations more effectively.
Kids will acquire essential life-saving skills such as CPR, choking manoevre and how to deal with common injuries like cuts, bleeding and allergic reactions, including the use of an EpiPen.
Kids will learn how to stay safe while cooking and during mealtimes, including prevention of choking incidents and appropriate responses if they occur.
They will gain the knowledge and confidence to respond effectively to common emergencies like burns and electrical shocks, ensuring a safer home environment for themselves and others.
