Our Filkins Nursery team have just been awarded Millie’s Mark for Excellence in First Aid, after several months of work to prepare for it. Having the Millie’s Mark award demonstrates their commitment to going above and beyond the minimum requirements for keeping children safe. It shows that all staff working directly with children not only hold a paediatric first aid certificate but that they are also competent in how to apply this in practice. Achieving Millie’s Mark shows that they have the correct procedures and documentation in place and gives parents that greater reassurance.
It is a process that has taken you between three and six months and ensured that they have worked as a team to fulfil the Millie’s Mark criteria and ensure that staff are able to keep children safe and minimise the risks and accidents.
Nursery Manager, Louise Jenkins said, “We are delighted to be the first nursery in the Old Station Nursery Group to achieve Millie’s Mark, and we have been sharing our learning with our other nurseries, so that we can all be more confident in our First Aid practice and our ability to keep children safe in our nurseries. We will be celebrating on 23rd June with all our parents, children and staff, as this is a real achievement for all the team.”
