The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework requires
all early years providers in England to have at least one person who has
a current and full paediatric first aid certificate on the premises and
available at all times when children are present

Providers should also take
into account the number of children, staff and layout of the premises and
increase their paediatric first aid provision accordingly to ensure that a
paediatric first aider is available to respond to emergencies quickly
