Charnwood Nursery & Pre-school awarded re-accreditation for Millie’s Mark after first achieving the status in 2018
Charnwood Nursery & Pre-school is a 114 place day nursery based in Thurmaston, Leicester. They have recently been awarded re-accreditation for Millie’s Mark after first achieving the status in 2018.
The setting has always been diligent about first aid and long before embarking on the accreditation process, they ensured that all their staff were paediatric first aid trained. However, Millie’s Mark has ensured that they are more accountable in ensuring that staff qualifications are renewed promptly and that the training meets the Millie’s Mark criteria.
Charnwood have said, "completing the accreditation process has really strengthened our knowledge and systems have become more robust. Staff regularly revisit first aid training through taking part in drills at staff meetings, knowledge checkers in supervisions and have prompts to refer to within the setting.
Risk assessments are more purposeful and as a result of the accreditation process we have introduced additional risk assessments helping to further eliminate potential hazards.
