Infant and Child

CPR and First Aid

 

Infant and Child CPR and First Aid certifies you in CPR and First Aid for two years by the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI). The class is taught by Quijuan Maloof, a highly awarded paramedic from San Francisco. He is a wonderfully caring and considerate instructor who makes the class extremely interactive and interesting and perfect for all ages. Great for new parents, grandparents, caregivers, babysitters, and those looking to be re-certified.

 

You will learn the basic hands-on skills needed to perform CPR (including rescue breathing), use an AED (automated external defibrillator) device, and the entire range of basic first aid (including choking and poisons) so you will feel safe and prepared for your infant/child.  This class will also briefly review CPR and choking for adults and pregnant women.

Baby Sign Language

 

Want to be a baby whisperer? Baby Sign Language gives babies the opportunity to communicate long before they can verbalize their wants and needs. Signing with babies accelerates language acquisition, reduces frustration, enhances a child's self-esteem, and deepens the bond between parent and child.

 

This 1.5 hour introductory workshop will introduce you to 45+ signs. Fun exercises and games will show you how easy it can be to integrate these signs into your everyday routine and jump-start your child’s verbal communication.  You are welcome to bring your baby, but it is not required. 

 

Price: $50 per person

 

Time: October 19, 2019

Private classes available upon request

 

Location: Behind Healthy Horizons Peninsula Breastfeeding Center in Burlingame at Rec Room Creative (1419 Chapin Avenue, Suite 101, Burlingame, CA)
