The creation of "Millie's Mark" is imminent and we should be able to take applications from nurseries who have 100% staff trained in Paediatric First Aid from March/April 2016.
We are currently in the Tender Process for the mark and are hoping to release full details in November 2015 with regards to the criteria and how YOUR NURSERY can make an application to achieve the mark
Alongside Millie's Mark, we are also pleased to announce that as from September 2016 ALL Childcare Level 2 and Level 3 Qualifcations MUST include Paediatric First Aid.
The new proposals will mean newly qualified staff with a childcare level 2 and 3 qualification must have an emergency paediatric first aid or full paediatric first aid certificate - a life-saving change that will add approximately 15,000 additional trained early years professionals to our nurseries and pre-schools each and every year.
