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.

Woodwork Bench Masterpieces

Some of the children in Nursery 1 have been using the tools and woodwork bench outside. The adults have supported them to be safe with the tools and use them to join different materials. The children are very creative and lots of lovely learning is happening. Look out for a new display soon which will show off some of the children’s work.

Please help us to keep stocked up with materials by saving your plastic lids from milk, food containers or pop bottles, metal lids from jars and any off cuts of wood which we could use to create more masterpieces!
