Millie’s Mark Award

Millie’s Mark is an exceptional achievement for a childcare setting. It is awarded as a special endorsement to childcare providers that go above and beyond minimum requirements in keeping children safe, by having 100% of staff trained in paediatric first aid.

All of our settings have achieved the Millie’s Mark Award, which provides you reassurance that all our staff team know what to do in a Paediatric first aid situation. It acknowledges that children’s safety is our top most priority!
