First Aid Training for Nursery Staff

Children and kids are curious creatures, making them more likely to get hurt. If they can’t talk yet, they can’t tell you what hurts or makes them sick so they can get worse quickly. To fully understand something about an emergency, you need to have the necessary knowledge, skills, and confidence. In today’s world, it is the goal of any nursery or pre-school to keep their students safe from harm, yet there are several hazards on and around the school premises that could cause injury at any time. Although schools cannot eliminate all potential dangers, they may improve their ability to tackle problems by means that all employees who work with or near children have adequate first aid training for nursery staff.
After the introduction of Millie’s Law in September 2016, new nursery staff were required to complete training in pediatric first aid before they could begin working. As a result of the measures made by the government, receiving first aid training for nursery staff  is now obligatory for anybody seeking employment in nurseries or pre-schools.
In order to ensure that newly certified childcare workers holding a level 2 or 3 childcare certification are properly trained in emergency pediatric first aid or first aid training for nursery staff. This move, which could save countless lives, will hopefully result in an annual increase of approximately 15,000 skilled early years professionals who work in nurseries, pre-schools, and child care facilities.
Millie’s Mark 
Joanne and Dan Thompson support the plans after Millie’s death. Since 9-month-old Millie died of choking at childcare in October 2012, they’ve campaigned for reform. The initiative concluded in an e-petition by 103,000-person.
Millie’s Mark seeks to keep the children safe as well as reduce the risk and accidents by:
Raising pediatric first aid standards.
A growing number of staff members who are trained in first aid.
Enhancing individual’s competence in the provision of first aid.
Providing the employees with the ability to act quickly in emergency.
Increasing the workforce’s quality and abilities in the early years and assisting them with common first aid situations, like allergies.
Delivering reassurance to parents and guardians.
Every parent wants to know that anyone providing care for their child is properly trained. A basic understanding of first aid can literally save a person’s life. These alterations to the law have the potential to save the life of a kid.
