Who Needs Nurseries? We Do!

(1978, 11 minutes)

This film presents the serious facts about nursery provision in an entertaining and accessible way. The story is told from the perspective of four-year-old Tracy who discovers for herself the benefits of nursery education. Feeling hemmed in by family life, she runs away and goes to a meeting of children presided over by three 'chairbabies'. They discuss their problems arising from a lack of nursery places, and in the end decide to take action.
