Why is the mark named after Millie?


Millie’s Mark is named after Millie Thompson, who tragically died as a result of choking on food at a nursery in Stockport in 2012. Her parents, Dan and Joanne Thompson, set up Millie’s Trust in her name.

The Government is analysing the responses to the consultation on amendments to the paediatric first aid requirements in the Early Years Foundation Stage statutory framework. 

The proposals would make it a requirement that newly qualified early years staff (with full and relevant level 2 or level 3 childcare qualifications) must also have either a full paediatric first aid (PFA) or an emergency PFA certificate before they can be included in the required staff : child ratios in an early years setting.
