An appeal on behalf of NURSERY SCHOOLS IN SCOTLAND by ISHBEL MACDONALD The first nursery school in Scotland then and now known as a free kindergarten, was opened in The Canongate of Edinburgh in 1903. Now such schools caring for little children from two to five years of age are found in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen, and other places. All have a long waiting list, for mothers in crowded areas are quick to appreciate a place that gives their little ones happy occupation and trains them in good habits of life. The children come joyfully, for everything in the nursery schools calls them to the busy activity they love.
It is to help the voluntary committees responsible for these schools to shorten the sad waiting list of little ones with no safe place to play and work, that Miss Ishbel MacDonald is appealing tonight.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
