Baby + Child First Aid Class

The Bubble Launceston is excited to be offering Baby + Child first aid premium classes.


Baby + Child First Aid Tas provide information sessions covering baby and child CPR and first aid, home safety, accident prevention and the management of common childhood illnesses and injuries.

The sessions are intended for parents, families and members of the community who live with, or around children, and includes many topics that aren’t covered in most first aid courses, that are common causes of concern for parents and families.



Topics covered include:

  • CPR
  • Choking
  • Poisoning
  • Burns
  • Fever management & Febrile Convulsions
  • Diarrhoea, Vomiting & Dehydration
  • Respiratory Illness
  • Allergies & Anaphylaxis
  • Head Injury

The Premium classes offered at The Bubble Launceston are small groups that run a little longer than our community classes to allow for more content, hands on CPR practice and plenty of time for Q&A, along with take home resources and gift.

Baby + Child First Aid Tas sessions are brought to you by Sharon Rootes who is trained to provide information to parents and families in accordance with current recommendations and guidelines from reliable sources including the Australian Resuscitation Council, Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne, the Australian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy, Asthma Australia, Murdoch Children’s Research Institute and Red Nose to name a few.

Our sessions adhere to COVID-19 requirements and all equipment used by participants is sanitised before and after each use.
