Throughout their lifetimes, the sisters Rachel and Margaret McMillan worked tirelessly to establish a philosophy of open air nursery education. A philosophy that continues to influence practice in the EFYS today. For over 100 years the Rachel McMillan Nursery School has championed the needs of children, particularly those in deprived areas.
