First Aid – Parent Workshop

As part of our Millie’s Mark commitment to help highlight the importance of as many people as possible having some basic first aid skills and knowledge, we were delighted that so many of our Juice Nursery parents were able to join us at our First Aid for Parents Workshop.

The course was run by Paul Green from First Responder to cover some basics of what to do if faced with a first aid emergency situation, so that effective emergency treatment can be given before professional help arrive, which can go a long way to reducing the effects of illness and injury and indeed save a life.

The evening proved very popular and we hope to organise further such workshops in due course.

I CAN Accreditation – it’s good to talk

Hot on the heels of achieving our Millie’s Mark earlier this summer, we are proud to share our success, here at Juice Nursery, in attaining I CAN Early Talk Accreditation at a Supportive Level.

Awarded by children’s communication charity, I CAN, this is an endorsement of a setting’s ability to:
support the language skills of all childrendemonstrate good practice in promoting speech, language and communication development in childrenshow good practice in the identification and referral of children with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN).

We found undertaking this accreditation to be an extremely valuable experience, providing an opportunity for us to reflect on the quality & focus of our practice, as we seek to improve and evolve. In addition, receiving this acknowledgement goes a long way in recognising our team’s hard work, commitment to training and their own continued professional development, as well as their determination to provide the children within our nursery with an outstanding level of care.

Juice Nursery awarded a Millie’s Mark!

We are very proud to have been awarded a Millie’s Mark by the NDNA – National Day Nurseries Association, in association with the Department for Education and Millie’s Trust

Achieving a Millie’s Mark means that we are a setting that goes over and above current requirements in terms of what we do to keep children safe, as detailed in the EYFS, aspiring to achieve excellence in terms of first aid.

All our staff have undergone paediatric first aid training, but also as a setting we have demonstrated that we have reflected on our practice to ensure that there we have tight processes and documentation in place and that our staff are competent and feel confident to apply paediatric first aid practically.

This has been a 6 month process for us, and has seen our entire team working together and we are very proud that our efforts have been acknowledged and endorsed through this very special reward.

Rest assured our focus on continuously developing our quality care and education will not stop here…watch this space for more on our First Aid Workshop for our Juice Nursery parents, coming soon!
