Millie's Mark for childminders

What is Millie's Mark?

Millie's Mark is a voluntary 'gold standard' for childcare providers. It demonstrates that you go above and beyond minimum legal requirements in paediatric first aid, and also ensures that knowledge is kept alive and in the forefront of your mind so that you are confident, ready and capable.

When you gain the Millie's Mark accreditation, you provide reassurance for your parents that you know what to do in a paediatric first aid situation. It acknowledges that children’s safety is at the forefront of your mind when you care for children.

Millie's Mark for childminders

Millie's Mark, which was previously only available to nurseries, has been extended to childminders - as well as pre-schools, nursery schools and reception classes at primary schools.
If you are a childminder interested in applying for Millie's Mark, you can apply under "sign up" and select the 1-14 staff member option. You will use the same system and submit the same evidence as nurseries. Your mentor will support you one-to-one and work with you on your portfolio.
