Plastic free nursery award
So we did it!! In October 2019 we received confirmation that we have become the first Day Nursery in Cheshire and one of the first in the UK to gain ‘Plastic Free Nurseries’ status with Surfers Against Sewage!! Well done to all our children, staff and parents who supported us with this special project, we are very proud to hold this status.
We continue to strive to make a deference and firmly believe…

Food for life Early Years Programme award
Food for Life Award.... Fresh off the back of our ‘Plastic Free Nurseries’ status we are proud to announce that we have received the ‘Food for Life’ award for Early Years from the Soil Association. The award recognises the positive impact Jigsaw has on our children’s health and wellbeing whilst also ensuring we have a whole setting approach to early years food and drink meeting the guidelines set by the Food For Life programme. As a direct result of this project we are about to secure additional allotment space off site which will allow us to increase the amount of food we are able to produce for ourselves whilst supporting the children’s food based learning. Well done to Charlotte, Dee and the wider team for all their efforts in helping us achieve this award!!

The High Sheriff’s Awards for Enterprise and Responsible Business
We are extremely proud to share with you that we were named Winners in the category of ‘Responsible Business Practice’ and were highly commended for the ‘Enterprise’ award.
The event was hosted by Phil Redmond CBE (TV writer / Producer) and Roger Johnson (BBC news presenter) and was attended by some of Cheshire’s leading independent businesses.
The judging for the awards was carried out by an independent panel made up of some of Cheshire’s most prominent business leaders and as part of the process we hosted 3 of the judges on site for a day back in December 2018. Our judging delegation included Professor Phil Harris (Executive Director of the Business Research Institute & Professor of Marketing and Public Affairs at the University of Chester), Robert Ellis (Founder of Ellis & Co Chartered Accountants) and Claire Pritchard (Business Manager – Barclays).
The judges commented that their visit to the nursery had been truly inspirational and that the environment in which we operate demonstrated a genuine commitment and passion for excellence. Robert Ellis noted that he felt their visit had been a truly uplifting experience and was pleased to see that the next generation of future business leaders in Cheshire were being offered such a positive start to their education.
We were awarded £3000 in prize money which we are already busy considering how to reinvest in the nursery.

Millie's Mark

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Guidelines, which childcare settings in England are required to follow, currently state that just one person with a current paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises and available at all times when children are present or on outings.

In July 2017 Jigsaw was awarded the special endorsement of Millie's Mark which is an acknowledgement that our setting goes above and beyond these minimum requirements by ensuring that 100% of staff are paediatric first aid trained. Our endorsement is annually reviewed and renewed to ensure we continue to ensure extremely high standards in regards to paediatric first aid training. 

Forest School Association

In December 2017, Jigsaw received the Forest School Accreditation from The Forest School Association who are the professional body and UK wide voice for the promotion of Forest School. Jigsaw was the First Early Years setting in the UK to receive the accreditation and we are honoured to have been included in the provisions within the UK who provide quality Forest School sessions for all."
