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.

Head Teacher Message

Hello and welcome to our new website for 2015! We hope you will find this site quicker and easier to use, and that you will find lots of useful information as well as celebrations of what your fantastic children are doing and learning when they are at Nursery. We now have lots of different ways of sharing information with you, including this site, email, text, twitter, Facebook and our OurSchools App, so make sure you sign up to avoid missing out! At McMillan we try to create a place where children can find what they need to develop and learn, but we also know that what parents do at home has a massive impact on how children learn and progress, so we want to work together with you to get the best for all our children.

Amendment to End of Term date!! IMPORTANT

This summer the Nursery School is having its heating system replaced.  This means they need to take out and replace all the pipework and radiators in every room of our building.  This will be very disruptive and messy.

Most of this work is planned for the summer holidays, however we will be closing one day early, so that staff have a day to pack away all the toys and resources before the work is due to start on 20.7.15

This means that our last day of term will now be Thursday 16th July.

We are sorry if this causes any inconvenience and have tried to give as much notice as possible so that parents can arrange alternative care for children on that day.

With a big thanks to Groundworks and our volunteers we now have our greenhouse.  It is amazing and the children can’t wait to start growing plants in it.

Please have a look at the photos taken  yesterday at various stages of the build.

Stay & Play



Nursery 3 are having a couple of Stay & Play Sessions next week.

Monday 15th June 12.15pm – 3.15pm &

Friday 19th June 8.30am – 11.30am

Please come along and join in the fun with your child.

Butterfly Release!

We purchased some caterpillars, looked after and fed them until they turned into butterflies.  On a sunny day the children thought it was a good idea for the butterflies to stretch their wings to fly away and find a new home.  We carefully took the butterflies outside and unzipped the carry case and were ever so gentle with them.  The butterflies sat on our hands and we could see their beautiful wings.

The children were so inspired about the butterflies and continued to talk about them the next day in the garden and decided to go on a butterfly hunt.
