The Racecourse Nursery/

The Racecourse Sunflower Day Nursery and Pre-School is situated in a purpose-built building at Newton Abbot Racecourse in Devon. Children are cared for in three age-related playrooms, and there is an outdoor play area which all age group share. The children have supervised access to the racecourse grounds on non-race days. The nursery operates from 8.00am to 6pm Monday to Friday all year round. The nursery receives funding for the provision of free early years education for aged two, three and four-year-old children. The nursery/pre-school supports children with special educational needs/or disabilities and children who are learning English as an additional language. The nursery employs a team of 10 staff who all hold recognised childcare qualifications.
