Millie's Mark is an award to childcare providers that go beyond the minimum requirements in paediatric first aid set by the Early Years Foundation Stage.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) guidelines, which childcare settings 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 2017, page 22)
Sticky Fingers Pre-School is working towards this award which includes having 100% of staff trained in paediatric first aid and that they are confident and capable in first aid.
We will aim to offer information and support to parents through leaflets and links to useful documents or video's below or via our facebook page.
