Held at various venues in the Henley area including Henley Meeting House in Henley as well as Sonning Common, Marlow, Reading and Maidenhead each course will have a maximum number of 12 attendees to maintain an informal setting and so that people feel relaxed and able to ask questions. There is also the opportunity to host a course at your own home with a minimum number of 4 people.

In addition to the basic course, Ladybird First Aid also offers other certified courses including a two-day Paediatric First Aid course that complies with the requirements of OFSTED and Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), First Aid at Work and Emergency First Aid at work.


Speaking about her business enterprise, Rachel Moffatt, Founder of Ladybird First Aid, said: “Since becoming a mum to my two children, Jack and Ella, I have felt an ever-greater need to learn first aid. When your child becomes ill or gets injured, it can be your quick reactions and knowing what to do in those first few vital minutes that can prevent any further injury or from the illness getting more serious. I feel that there is a gap in the market in Henley and the surrounding areas for this type of course and hope that Ladybird First Aid can fill that void.

“The courses we offer cater for different levels of knowledge and with many grandparents and other family members helping out with childcare duties these days, it may be a perfect course to attend to help them brush up on their child first aid skills as well.”
