A welcoming and inspiring nursery in Esher

Welcome to Sandown Park Day Nursery and Preschool. Our Ofsted rated Good nursery is set in the beautiful grounds of Sandown Park Racecourse in Esher and delivers excellent care and education to children aged 3 months to 5 years.

Specialist Early Years Care

Babies and younger children will feel comfortable and happy with practitioners following the routine they have at home as closely as possible. They have a bright and spacious room with its own cosy sleep area. Activities are planned based on your child's own unique interests, helping them to discover their interests and independence.

Preschoolers will feel confident and ready to start school as they are taught key skills and lessons by their own qualified preschool teacher.

Additional Specialist Rooms

As well as our spacious classrooms, your child will enjoy using our specialist rooms. These include a dedicated sleep room for naps, a lovely dining room so you child can have fun learning about mealtimes with friends, and a children's kitchen. Here, your budding chef will explore the world of healthy food and take part in fun cooking activities.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's development and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Candy Floss

Hi, my name is Candy Floss, I joined Bright Horizons in March 2010 as the ‘Super Safety Hero’ to help nursery children stay safe and manage risks. My role as a Health and Safety Super Hero is unique to Bright Horizons and I’m in every nursery, 365 days a year.

Back in 2010, I saw a job advert for a Zebra Super Safety Hero – I was very excited, applied and was invited for an interview with several other zebras. We were interviewed by all the children who then voted on which of us would be their Super Safety Hero. It was hoof biting but I was thrilled when they told me I was the most voted for by the children who all loved me because of my cape and bag. My bag is very special, if something fits inside, it’s a choking hazard. You might be wondering how I got my name. The children in our nurseries chose five names and voted for their favourite. I love it as it’s unique, I mean have you ever heard of a zebra called Candy Floss? Exactly!

Why Bright Horizons

The Bright Horizons passion and enthusiasm for providing high-quality care isn’t just common knowledge within our own business – we’ve also gained some impressive accolades from external sources for excellence as both a childcare provider, and as an employer. We are the only childcare company to have been listed for the last 11 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
