"Bella come out of preschool so excited about what she had learnt with Flat Stan First Aid telling me all about what number to call, where to press the chest on flat Stan and loved showing me all the other bits in the booklet. Her certificate is pride of place on the fridge! Thanks to FlexiMed Training for making it enjoyable and fun and to Scribbles Preschool for allowing them to learn important life skills".

Simon was wonderfully engaging, holding the attention of the three and four year olds in nursery for almost half an hour with his gentle and participatory approach. Several weeks later the children continue to talk about their first aid session, and have enthusiastically explained their knowledge about what to do in an emergency to some of our other visitors for our 'People Who Help Us' topic. By treating the children as capable of being competent lifesavers they were able to develop the skills and knowledge to help them to make a difference, should they need to do so.

Get in touch to find out more!Flat Stan is proving to be a real hit with the kids and has already shown skills retention through making learning fun.
Let’s start at the beginning – One day Simon noticed that there was lots of First Aid for grownups but not much around for children. So he decided to change this and Simon created a new training concept - Flat Stan First Aid – Essential Life Skills for Children! With lots of fun!
After a lot of thought and enthusiasm Flat Stan was launched and thousands of children across the UK have now been introduced to First Aid with the help of Flat Stan. It is our mission to help more children across the UK and beyond learn these Essential Life Skills. As a way of helping children and communities less fortunate than our own we are working with a charity in Ghana, First Intervention Ghana, and together we have already started to teach children in West Africa.
We know children can make a difference in an emergency situation and these skills will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
