Puffins at Newton House was first opened in 2002. It operates from a semi detached house on the outskirts of Torquay, close to Torbay hospital and the John Parkes Unit. We are based on the Number 12 bus route and are very close to the Willows shopping centre, and within striking distance of the Paignton Ring road. The youngest children aged from three months to two years are accommodated in a small self- contained baby unit at the rear of the main house, with the two to three year olds using the large ground floor room in the main house and the pre- school children accommodated on the first floor. The fully enclosed rear garden is used for outdoor play and children are also taken on walks and outings locally.
