Welcome to Puffins

Our ethos is simple: we put the care and education of your child at the heart of everything we do. Everything we do is motivated by the admiration and respect we have for your child’s potential. Our nurseries are places to foster your child’s imagination, creativity and uniqueness so that they are fully equipped to go on to the next stage of their education.

Founded over 30 years ago, Puffins continues to maintain our original philosophy to give parents choice and peace of mind and to give children high quality experiences throughout their young lives.

We currently offer full and sessional care for children from birth to Preschool provision in Exeter. We are also registered to accept children who are eligible for 2yr old funding and the extended early years entitlement.

At Puffins, your child will be safe, loved and supported in a stimulating, homely environment. Above all, we want your children to leave us happy, confident little people who are ready and fully prepared to move onto Reception.

Our Vision

We want to provide outstanding care and education for your child. We invest heavily in staff training and development to ensure that all of our staff are continually improving their practice. We strongly believe that well qualified staff improve outcomes for your child and we ensure that all our settings have a graduate practitioner. As a family business we understand the needs of working parents, which is why our fees include all extras such as nappies, snacks and lunch.


Our daughter loves attending Puffins at Mont Le Grand. The staff are all friendly and engage well with her. Since starting (about six months ago) she has developed speech and social skills she would not have been able to at home.

We can't recommend them highly enough. All of the staff we have dealt with have been great, and it feels like they enjoy working there. Our son always comes home with a big smile on his face, excited by the day he has had.
Father at Sowton – December 2020
I would 100% recommend, as the manager and staff are just brilliant and really made my little girl comfortable, and relaxed and she's always coming out excited to tell me about her day what she's done and where she's been etc.
