Paediatric First Aid

 

As a parent, placing your child in our nursery, endorsed with Millie’s Mark,  provides reassurance that all our childcare practitioners know what to do in a paediatric first aid situation.

It acknowledges that children’s safety is at the forefront of our mind when we care for your child.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) guidelines, which nurseries in England are required to follow, currently state that just one person with a current paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises and available at all times when children are present or on outings. (DfE 2014, page 21)

Millie's Mark was awarded in January 2017 as a special endorsement to our nursery for going above and beyond these minimum requirements because we have 100% of our staff trained in paediatric first aid, and we also ensure that everything learned during the course is kept alive and in the forefront of all our practitioners’ minds so that they are confident, ready and capable.

Millie's Legacy

 

Millie’s Mark is named after Millie Thompson, pictured below, who died after choking on food at a nursery in 2012 when she was just nine months old.
