Millie’s Mark Award ‘Gold Standard’ in Paediatric First Aid

October 18, 2017


We are proud to announce that our setting in Ashton-Under-Lyne, Tameside has been awarded the prestigious “Millie’s Mark”, a national ‘Gold Standard’ in paediatric first-aid.

Millie’s Mark shows that our staff are “going above and beyond minimum requirements in keeping children safe”. At Little Giggles we take your child’s safety extremely seriously and we work hard to ensure we have robost training and procedures in place to make sure your child receives the best possible care.

Millie’s Mark was named after Millie Thompson, who tragically passed away after choking on food when she was just nine months old. Her parents Dan and Joanne Thompson have since founded Millie’s Trust and have successfully campaigned for changes to the first aid requirements for childcare providers.

“All of our staff at Little Giggles are First-Aid Trained, but being awarded Millie’s Mark is a great success for us.  We plan to apply for Millie’s Mark in all our other settings over the next six months.”

Jamie-Louise, Founder of Little Giggles Nursery
