Caroline – Daisy First Aid
Caroline is a Paediatric Daisy First Aid trainer working across Wimbledon, Wandsworth, Clapham and surrounding areas. She is able to offer Venue, Hosted or online classes.
Hi, my name is Caroline and I am a mum to 7 year old boy who is totally in love with playing Minecraft! When I was on my maternity leave, I decided that I wanted to learn first aid to make sure that I knew what to do in an emergency with my son, especially as I was the main carer. I was told about Daisy First Aid by a friend and went to a local 2 hour session with my partner, sister and a couple of friends. About a year after, I received a newsletter from the owner of DFA about running a franchise and it simply just went from there!
So more than 5 years down the line, leaving my HR job in the city which was the best thing I’ve ever done, I have now trained thousands of parents and parents to be, along with grandparents who let’s face it do more and more babysitting these days. I have also trained lots of aunts, uncles, antenatal groups, babysitters and children’s companies too who have a duty of care and want to be prepared just in case something happens.
As the owner of Daisy First Aid SW London, I have concentrated on providing just the 2 hour classes giving my customers the skills and confidence to deal with an emergency at home which we get such great feedback from. At the end of the year I will also be offering the longer classes for childminders and increasing my kids’ classes. I also have other trainers who run the classes with me too who equally share the same passion.
I simply love my job, meeting lots of lovely new people all of the time and giving them such important live saving skills along with working around my son, partner and general life stuff!
Our classes last for approx 2 hours and we run these on weekdays, evenings and weekends to fit in with your schedule. I offer both private and public classes, which can be run both face to face or live online. Our classes cost £25 per person fora minimum of 4 people. I cover the following areas, but if you can’t see your postcode, then still get in touch and I will see what I can do:
SW2, SW4, SW8, SW9, SW11, SW12, SW15, SW17, SW18, SW19, SW20, SE24 & SM4.

Our classes are great to do if you are expecting your baby, either as a couple, antenatal groups or with family and friends – the class is suitable during pregnancy.
Equally, if you haven’t managed to do it before baby (or you have older babies that you are about to start weaning – or even toddlers that are starting to wonder into dangerous situations) then the class is still a great thing to do.
Our baby first aid class will leave you feeling empowered and and prepared.

"I did the 2 hour paediatric first aid course at the beginning of February. Caroline was/is AMAZING! She's knowledgeable, calm, and delivered the course in both a friendly and professional manner. If you want a basic and thorough course, then this is the one for you. The truth is that you'll be on the phone in an emergency anyway, this gives you the knowledge and confidence to act fast in those vital moments before the emergency services arrive. Thank you again Caroline! :) x"
AS, new mum - Venue Class
"Thanks so much to Caroline, we had a fantastic session at our house with my NCT group. Caroline is very friendly and knowledgable, she came fully loaded with adult and baby mannequins so we could not only understand the theory but also practice CPR, recovery positions and choking actions. We covered so much in the 2 hour session for first aid on adults, kids and babies and how treatment differs between those age groups and kept things simple so you can remember them. She was very understanding when we needed to pause to deal with a baby needing something and could answer all our questions. Would definitely recommend."

"Caroline was an amazing instructor. We got the whole family together at ours so everyone could get trained together. My niece is pregnant so she found it all very useful and made her husband feel more confident for when the baby arrives. My son is 8 months old and will soon have some sleepovers at his grandmas so she really appreciated the lesson and feels more comfortable know for feed times and possible accidents. Overall we were all super happy with the class and definitely would recommend it."
