Elm Cottage Nursery, in Cheadle Hulme has become one of the first 10 nurseries in the country to achieve Millie’s Mark, the new quality mark for excellence in paediatric first aid for early years settings.

The status was created by charity Millie’s Trust with the Department for Education and is being administered by National Day Nurseries Association. First awards have been made to childcare providers that took part in a pilot ahead of last month’s full go-live, after achieving the detailed and rigorous criteria involved. Millie’s Mark is being awarded to nurseries where all staff members who work with children are qualified in paediatric first aid and who have well-deployed first aid processes.
The process takes three to six months and involves intensive support from an NDNA mentor, completion of an audit, risk assessment and spot checks.

Millie’s Trust was formed in 2012 by Joanne and Dan Thompson, whose daughter Millie died after choking on food at her nursery in Stockport. The Trust has campaigned tirelessly for all early years staff to be trained in paediatric first aid.
