Thomas Coram Centre is a maintained nursery school, led by qualified teachers and early years practitioners. We offer places to children who are two, three and four years old. We are pleased to offer places under the two year scheme.

If you wish to apply, please click on the PDF below to download the form. Alternatively, please come along to see us and we will be happy to give you a printed application form.


We believe that parents are the child’s first and most enduring educators and that an effective partnership with parents is of great importance in the early years. We encourage this partnership throughout your child’s time in the nursery, starting with a home visit and developing with regular informal meetings and progress reviews.

We set aside time each week for prospective parents who wish to visit our nursery school and find out about the provision we offer.

Please contact reception (020 7520 0385) who will be happy to book an appointment for you to meet Perina, the head teacher and have a look around our nursery school.
