In this letter to The Times, Winnicott states that day nurseries deserve support because they meet the urgent needs of families and help to keep them together. He upholds his belief that nursery schools provide something very good, and that the British nursery school tradition aims at enabling children to be individuals, which characterizes modern education as a whole. He mentions Margaret McMillan and Susan Isaacs as prominent figures in this field.
