    Titles read: "NURSERY DAYS!"

    Deptford, London.

    Brief shot of mothers and toddlers walking across the playground of the Rachel Macmillan Nursery School in East London. Various shots of the children, all aged between 2 and 5 years, washing their faces, brushing their teeth, taking baths, playing with puzzle games, bathing and playing with dolls. Brief shot of Queen Mary visiting the school a few years before; she poses with a line of toddlers.

    More nice shots of the children playing on a slide. A little girl rings a bell and we see the children laying tables and serving food to one another. The children get into little camp beds in the playground and go to sleep for their afternoon nap. Brief shot of children running to their mothers and being pushed out of the playground in their pushchairs.
