Sleeping children must be frequently checked to ensure that they are safe. SIDS usually occurs when a baby is asleep so it is vital that those in early years settings ensure that they comply with safe sleeping guidelines to reduce the risk of danger to the babies that are in their care.
Developed by The National College, this course provides you with an understanding of SIDS and knowledge and awareness of how to ensure safe sleeping within your early years setting.
Please note: The course consists of learning through video, task completion and further reading/research. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives of the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process and complete all relevant activities to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
