Little Learners Day Nursery, is proud to have achieved Millie’s Mark – a quality standard aimed at keeping children safe and minimising risks and accidents.

Achieving the Millie's Mark is no easy task, requiring a great deal of dedication, focus and hard work from all staff. Gaining the standard means:

  • Raising standards in paediatric first aid
  • Increasing numbers of first aid-trained staff
  • Increasing competency in applying first aid
  • Enabling staff to respond quickly in emergencies
  • Raising the quality and skills of the early years workforce and helping them with day-to-day first aid issues, such as allergies
  • And providing reassurance to parents.

The Millie's Mark panel assessed the portfolio submitted by the Little Learners Day Nursery using the following:

  • Evidence of needs assessment for setting staff
  • Evidence that all staff hold an appropriate in-date PFA (full or emergency) certificate
  • Evidence of classroom-based training for one-day courses.

The awarding of Millie’s Mark was dependent on all of the criteria being met in addition to the legal requirements as set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework.

Little Learners will work to keep these crucial skills in the forefront of their employees' minds, so that they are competent and ready to act in an emergency situation.
