McMillan Nursery School was purpose built in 1938 to accommodate children from North Hull Estate and other parts of Hull. We are proud to have served the community for over 75 years, beginning with the original ethos of Rachel and Margaret – the McMillan sisters – and evolving into an environment where young children are cared for, supported, challenged and stimulated. A space where children and parents are valued and respected, and where we work together to help them at the beginnings of their lifelong learning journeys.”

Find out about the McMillan sisters – after whom our nursery school is named.

Nursery School

In 1911 she and Rachel started the ‘Girls’ Night Camp’ where girls came and stayed overnight in simple beds under basic shelters. Margaret was convinced that fresh air, exercise and good nutritious food would improve their health in a way that the clinic could not. The girls’ ages ranged from 6 – 14 and there were sometimes as many as 17 girls sleeping in camp. The principle was to get them out of cramped and badly ventilated bedrooms, not, in any way, to replace their homes – as Margaret said, it was ‘an open-air residential school, that does not separate the child from her home’. Soon a boys’ camp followed, but Margaret was convinced the effects of the camp were too late for these children – so she started an experimental ‘Baby’ camp, which Rachel gave up her job to help run, and this became the Rachel McMillan Open-Air Nursery School, the seed from which other nurseries could grow.

Scare Safely this Halloween

Halloween can be an exciting time of year for children, dressing up and going out after dark. Being mindful of potential hazards can help prevent accidents and make Halloween safer for everyone without dampening the fun.

‘Monster world’

Today the children worked together to create this ‘monster world.’ They drew monsters, ghosts and witches and we talked about what monsters do.
The children decided they scare people and eat boys and girls. This discussion led to the children designing a set of rules similar to our lanyards. They had used previously learnt strategies and applied them to their own knowledge and understanding.
We had rules like “don’t eat me” “good listening” and ” don’t come in our house” plus a few others.  #sparkingourimagination.

Socks & spare clothes

A gentle reminder for parents/carers to put lots of spare socks and clothes in your child’s bag. As the weather is becoming cold and wet the children often need changing on return from outdoor play. We are unfortunately running very low on spare clothes at nursery, please can parents return any clothes/underwear/socks that the nursery have provided.

If you have any spare clothes that your child has grown out of all donations are welcome.
