Nurseries in Devon/North Devon and advice on moving nurseries needed

My DS - 2.5 - currently attends a nursery near where we live in Oxfordshire - Bright Horizons, Mongewell - and he loves it. They have been great with him since he started at 9 months and we have never had any major issues about it.
We are now expecting our second child in July and as such are planning to move out west to Devon/North Devon to a bigger place whilst I am on Mat leave. Bright Horizons don't have any nurseries in Devon at all, so I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations of nurseries in the area or advice on where I might find a comprehensive list of nurseries and preeschools? DS will be just past his 3rd birthday by the time we move and maybe a preschool attached to a primary will be the way for us to go at that age? Any advice or comments on the best approach for this kind of move as well (settling in again etc) would be hugely appreciated!!

The leading edge nursery in bideford is a fantastic place.
It's attached to an independent school in bideford, north devon, where there is also a pre-school on site.
It's a really happy and caring place and has lots of experience with helping families to settle after moving into the area.
The manager is more than willing to help and would happily offer advice on managing the move and transition for your little one.

You can make your move a real adventure for you little one; there is so much to do.
Lots of nice days out and plenty of opportunities to meet new friends.

Good luck with your move. North devon is a lovely place, I wouldn't live anywhere else, love it even more when the sun is shining.
