Awards and Achievements

Lead Practitioner

Helen Brockliss has been selected by the Early Years Foundation Stage Consultancy Team as a designated Lead Practitioner for the past four years.

The scheme was established to contribute to the continued development of high-quality practice within the Early Years Foundation Stage throughout Lancashire. We are one of twenty settings throughout Lancashire that have been selected to offer support to other Early Years Foundation Stage practitioners by acting as exemplars and sharing good practice.

Lancashire Quality Award

We have achieved the Lancashire Quality Award  which demonstates our strive to continually improve our practice and to provide outstanding childcare.

The Lancashire Quality Award is underpinned by the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Quality Improvement Principles.

Millie's Mark Award

We have been awarded ‘Millie’s Mark’ which is a special endorsement for childcare providers that go above and beyond minimum requirements by having 100% of staff trained in paediatric first aid, and also ensuring that everything learned during the course is kept alive and in the forefront of practitioners’ minds so that they are confident, ready and capable.

Millie’s legacy

Millie’s Mark is named after Millie Thompson, who died after choking on food at nursery in 2012 when she was just nine months old.
