First Aid Course
NCT recognises how important it is for parents to have basic first aid skills and the confidence to use them in an emergency. However rare it is for accidents to happen, it’s great to know you’re prepared to cope if you need to.
The course lasts for 2.5 hours, and the topics covered include:
- Unresponsive baby and child (breathing and not breathing)
- Choking baby and child
- Raised temperature
Details of our next course will be posted here once bookings are open.
A member hosts a session and can hold it for whatever age group is most appropriate for them - Babies, Toddlers or all ages.
It’s very informal, with coffee and possibly some cake and lots of chat for the adults and play for the small people. It’s a good way to make friends and can be a lifesaver.
You can meet other parents with children of a range of ages, learn from their wisdom (and their mistakes) and get out of the house and have an adult conversation. All are welcome: bumps, babies, toddlers, children and parents.
Prams on the Prom
We are currently looking for new volunteers to restart our Prams on the Prom event. It could be run on whatever day/time is convenient to the hosts and does not need to be at the same location, it could move to 1 new location or be shared between different hosts.
Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to get involved.
NEW Bumps & Babies
Our new Bumps & Babies group is run by Hayley and is held between 1pm - 3pm on Thursdays (not ususally including school holidays) at Rydal Penrhos Prepatory School, Pwllycrochan Avenue.
A big thank you to Rydal Penrhos for allowing us to use their facilities.
Primarily aimed at pregnant ladies and those with younger babies, Bumps & Babies is a fab place to meet other parents, get information and support and just get out of the house for a while! It could be a good starting point if you are nervous about going to an open house or intimidated by the toddler group circuit.
