Recipient: Scribbles Day Nursery
Date: Tuesday 06 Feb 2018
In February 2018 Scribbles Day Nursery was awarded a Millie’s Mark award. Millie’s Mark is named after Millie Thompson who died after choking on food at a nursery in 2012 when she was just nine months old. Millie’s parents, Dan and Joanne Thompson, founded Millie’s Trust and have successfully campaigned for changes to first aid requirements for childcare providers. Having the Millie’s Mark award demonstrates our commitment to going above and beyond the minimum requirements for keeping children safe. It shows that all our staff working directly with children not only hold a paediatric first aid certificate but that they are also competent in how to apply this in practice. Achieving Millie’s Mark shows we have the correct procedures and documentation in place and gives parents that greater reassurance.
