The head and deputy head teachers at Thomas Coram school are committed to bringing access to green space to their children at the Thomas Coram Nursery School. They have worked hard to create zones with different plants to allow the children space to appreciate nature and also space to run free in the playground. 

With sponsorship and volunteers from The Foundling Museum, we have been able to add some new plants into empty spaces and also create a fern area which, over time when the plants have established, will become a dinosaur wilderness for the children to play in. We added an apple tree to an empty space which will fruit in September so that each new term the children can enjoy apples and learn about where fruit comes from. 

The Foundling Museum is passionate about working with the local community and this project was created with the aim of bringing planet and community positive ways of balancing their temporary exhibitions.
