Pufflings is a pre-school for children aged 2 and 3 years, based in a purpose-built setting at Bedfont Primary School.

We offer spaces in our morning session:

Monday – Friday 9:00 – 12:00

Our fully qualified and experienced staff look forward to welcoming you and your child as they begin their learning journey at Bedfont.

The cost is £20 per session until the term after your child’s third birthday when all children are entitled to a funded place. You may be eligible for a free place at Pufflings if you are in receipt of any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
