Cool Kids First Aid visited Goodstart Pakenham. Both kinder rooms learnt how to recognise an emergency, how to roll into the recovery position, how to call 000 and even learnt how to apply a bandage! Lots of fun was had, and lots of skills learnt
Thank you Cool Kids for an amazing visit!! Your interactive program captured our kinder children to the extent they are still roleplaying first aid skills and revising the principles in their play over and over again. You are to be commended for your passion, presentation style and professional approach!! Your program is an innovative way to inspire, empower and prepare children to act in situations where they may otherwise feel overcome. What important life skills these are! We are definitely going to book in again for next year. Well Done!!
Beth Mason , Director, Goodstart Pakenham
I spent over 4 years as a 000 police call taker. You could tell the kids who’d had some coaching on what to when they called 000

Our booking with Cool Kids First Aid was one of the best incursion learning experiences we’ve engaged at the centre. Angela was not only knowledgeable and professional, but she was a hit with the children and connected with them through her playful and energetic approach.
We were blown away by the skills the children developed and they showcased these for weeks afterwards. Parent feedback was overwhelmingly positive too, with many families commenting how thrilled they were that the experience had taught the children such valuable life-saving skills. We can’t wait to rebook First Aid for our next class of little learners!

Your approach and level of engagement with our children was so pleasing to see. The matter at hand is very important and to see the way you were able to make it age-appropriate and engaging for a large number of children was extremely exciting. Your intentions and learning goals were clear and the children were able to follow your lead with purpose.
You clearly have a foundation of knowledge when it comes to teaching little people, as you were able to get them up and moving as you were able to settle them ready to listen. We loved the way you began by giving each child a name sticker. This immediately made them feel valued and part of the learning group.
Meg Whitehead - Kindy Teacher and Educational Leader, Ruth Landau Harp Childcare Centre
Absolutely loved how Tasch connected with each and every one of our children. Loved that she took the time to make name badges. She acknowledged everyone’s great listening, made all our children feel they were going to be our next emergency crews.
Tasch set the standards high and we were super delighted that the children took so much information in and were able to put their peers in the recovery position and knew what signs to look for when checking if the person was unconscious.
Brilliant First Aid session, we should definitely have this as a yearly event. Loved the books Tasch read to the children. Tasch was so well prepared for such a big group.

I would just like to formally thank you for bringing a first aid course to the kinder kids yesterday. What a valuable thing to teach our children! Jimmy is now well versed in what to do if he found an adult on the ground; nonresponsive. And I believe Shauna is going to help the children learn their individual addresses, next week. Again you make me incredibly grateful that you cottage childcare are the carers for my boys... so warm, welcoming and progressive in teachings.
Cath Welsh, Parent from The Cottage Childcare, Monbulk
Thank you again for providing such a wonderful incursion. The children took so much on board and have been discussing and demonstrating their new skills since! This has been extremely worthwhile. Children are never too young to start learning life-saving skills!
Adrianna Papa, Kindergarten Teacher, Goodstart Early Learning
We had a wonderful experience with Cool Kids First aid yesterday! The children have not stopped talking about it and they have been practising their bandaging and recovery position rolling today which is great to see. Ange was positive and engaging and the children were engaged for the full 1.5-hour session. She was happy to work with us and monitor a couple of children who had different experiences with emergencies and we weren’t sure how they would respond to the training and they did great with Ange’s support.
It was amazing to see such little children (2 – 5 years) rolling adults into the recovery position. I truly believe the children could save someone’s life with the skills they learnt during the course. Thank you so much!
Mel Gereke, Centre Manager, Buggles Cherry Court
A fantastic experience for the kids learning basic first aid techniques. The children had a blast!
We also had some great feedback from parents, they said it was a great idea. Thank you so much for travelling 600kms to see us.

We had such a fun afternoon learning some basic first aid and CPR with the children. They all went home
telling their families what they learnt. It was such a great experience.

To Cool Kids First Aid,
Thank you for the very informative sessions that were certainly presented to our children in a very age-appropriate language that the children could understand and learn from. All the children were very proud to show their certificates to their families as they were collected to go home. Many of our families also commented on what a great way to present a very important subject to their children.
Thank you for your very interesting first aid sessions.
Lyne Nelsen, Program Coordinator, St Lukes Parish Vacation Care Program
The Cool Kids First Aid team were absolutely amazing! The children were engaged the entire way through and the content that they were taught was excellent. Our parents have not stopped complimenting this incursion and the children were extremely proud of all the new skills that they had learnt. Overall, one of the best incursions we have ever been a part of.
