We are pleased to announce that our nurseries, Smarty Pants and Lola-Belle’s have been awarded 'Millie's Mark', a quality mark for nurseries where all of our employees are trained in paediatric first aid. This has been awarded by National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) in association with the Department of Education and Millie's Trust, May 2017.
Since 2007 we have always had all staff trained in first aid, rather than just one on site, we felt that we can now be recognised for this and should hopefully promote awareness of the Trust and support and encourage other nurseries to do the same for the safety of the children in our care.
We are proud that we are the first in Sandwell, Dudley, Walsall, Wolverhampton and the Black Country to be awarded this quality mark. Closest nurseries with Millie's Mark are 3 in Birmingham.
More information about Millie's Trust and Millie's Mark can be found on their website. This mark will be renewed every 3 years, documents will be updated regularly and any new staff members will be trained within their first 3 months.
We hope you will all be proud that your child attends a nursery awarded with Millie's Mark and the first in the area.
