Oxford House School & Nursery achieves Millie’s Mark
We are proud to announce that we have achieved the Millie’s Mark accreditation!
Millie’s Mark is awarded as a special endorsement to childcare providers that go above and beyond the minimum requirements of the EYFS guidelines (stating only one person with a current paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises and available at all times when children are present). Every single member of our Early Years staff is paediatric first-aid trained to ensure that your children are receiving safest care possible. To have Millie’s Mark, 100% of staff have to be trained in paediatric first aid, and also ensure that everything they have learned during the course is kept alive and in the forefront of practitioners’ minds. The award means that parents can be confident that the most robust processes are in place to keep our children safe.
About Millie’s Mark
Millie’s Mark is named after Millie Thompson, who died after choking on food at nursery in 2012 when she was just nine months old. It acknowledges that children’s safety is at the forefront of the provider’s mind when they care for your child. Millie’s Mark will be awarded as a special endorsement to childcare providers that go above and beyond these minimum requirements by having 100% of staff trained in paediatric first aid, and also ensuring that everything learned during the course is kept alive so that they are confident, ready and capable.
