New Paediatric First Aid Guidance – Pre-schools, Nurseries and Millie’s Mark

Following recent announcements, we are delighted to provide you with some further information about the changes to paediatric first aid training in early years environments and the upcoming launch of Millie’s Mark. As you may be aware, under current legislation pre-schools and nurseries in England are only required to have one fully qualified paediatric first aider available on the premises whilst children are present.

However, in an unprecedented review of the standards, September 2016 will see the regulations finally amended. Under the new regulations, which are due to be included in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) guidance from 1st September 2016, all newly qualified staff possessing a Level 2 or 3 childcare qualification must also hold an emergency paediatric first aid or a full paediatric first aid certificate in order to be included in the required staff to child ratios in an early years setting.

Dan and Joanne Thompson of Millie’s Trust have been campaigning for the change since the tragic death of their daughter Millie Thompson, who passed away in a choking incident whilst at nursery in 2012. Their heart-felt campaign rapidly gained public support, with over 103,000 people signing their e-petition! In addition, soon early years care providers in England who have 100% of their staff trained in paediatric first aid will be able to apply for ‘Millie’s Mark’, a brand new kitemark style scheme that is set to be a sign of exceptional paediatric first aid cover.

Developed in conjunction with the Department for Education (DfE) and the National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA), Millie’s Mark will help to give parents assurance that every staff member that cares for their child is trained in vital paediatric life-saving skills. These two new changes are set to add an additional 15,000 paediatric first aiders to pre-schools and nurseries each year, a fantastic outcome that is sure to improve the standard of child care. With a select number of nurseries currently piloting the new Millie’s Mark, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for further announcements about the new scheme and how early years providers can apply to receive Millie’s Mark!
