The Addingtons Pre-School has been awarded the Millie's Mark accreditation!
Millie’s Mark is named after Millie Thompson, a 9 months old child, who died after choking on her food at a nursery in 2012. After Millie’s passing, her parents, Joanne and Dan Thompson, successfully campaigned to make it so all childcare providers, with direct contact with the children, must hold a current paediatric first aid certificate. This is instead of just a minimum of one member of staff, that holds a current paediatric first aid certificate, is to be on the premises and available at all times to the children, as specified in the Early Years Foundation
Stage guidelines. Therefore, every member of staff at the Addingtons Pre-school holds a current
paediatric first aid certificate.
