Paediatric First Aid













New nursery and pre-school staff will be required to undertake paediatric first aid for the first time, thanks to new government proposals.

The plans have received the support of parents Joanne and Dan Thompson, who have been campaigning for the change following the tragic death of their daughter, Millie, at nursery in October 2012. Their important campaign culminated in an e-petition signed by over 103,000 people.

The new proposals will mean newly qualified staff with a childcare level 2 and 3 qualification must have an emergency paediatric first aid or full paediatric first aid certificate - a life-saving change that will add approximately 15,000 additional trained early years professionals to our nurseries and pre-schools each and every year.

Mr and Mrs Thompson have also given their backing to the creation of a new special certificate - to be known as ‘Millie’s Mark’ - to be displayed by nurseries who have achieved gold-standard provision. The certificate will help to give parents assurance that their child is being cared for by safe and knowledgeable staff. It is hoped that over time the 2 initiatives announced today will help ensure that as many staff members as possible are trained in these important, life-saving skills.

Our courses are in March and September, in Maidstone, £79 per person.
