Childbase have worked exclusively with Little Wing since 2014 to deliver all first aid training for colleagues and parents. Little Wing have the philosophy that ‘it’s not what you teach, it’s how you teach’ and their trainers are, or have been, part of the front line emergency services.
Both Childbase and Little Wing believe that it’s not only essential for childcare practitioners to have this knowledge but also for parents and carers to receive training on basic life saving skills. We offer regular free training courses to our parents/carers at each nursery which are run by an accredited trainer from Little Wing.
All of our nursery practitioners attend paediatric first aid training. This course includes:

Harry the Health & Safety Hippo works with the children to help develop an understanding of risk from the earliest age. One of the key ways is Harry’s Health & Safety spies. Our preschool children, armed with clipboards and high visibility vests, patrol our nurseries flagging any potential hazards to our Practitioners.
When you visit our Nurseries you will be greeted by Harry at the front door reminding all visitors on the importance of door security.
You can use our exclusive family website and app Childbase@home, to learn more about health & safety – including good hygiene, exercise for the mind and body, sun and winter safety, road safety, water safety and more.
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard. All children at our Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery have access to our large, natural garden area on a daily basis as we recognise the impact that being outdoors has on a child’s social, emotional and physical development. The children enjoy planting vegetables and tasting their produce, served by our dedicated Nursery Chef.
