Margaret McMillan Nursery School is a large inner city Nursery School and Children’s Centre situated in Islington, North London.
The school serves a community which benefits from a very wide social, racial and ethnic mix. Typically more than twenty languages are spoken by families using the school and a wide cultural diversity is shared and enjoyed. The school and Children’s Centre is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team and draws on a wide range of expertise.
We provide education, day-care and full children’s centre services to our local community. We have a strong commitment to keeping the child at the heart of all we do and to working in partnership with parents and the community. We provide services that enable everyone to recognise their potential and value their achievements and contributions. We offer the children and their families a rich and varied child centred curriculum in a supportive nurturing environment.
The school is set in nearly an acre of garden and operates the garden nursery model pioneered by Margaret McMillan. We have a well resourced child-friendly environment which enables the children to develop their independence skills within a play based curriculum.
