Jigsaw Ash Tree Farm Day Nursery

We are proud to announce that we have recently taken over Ashgrove farm Day Nursery situated at the opposite end of the Wrexham road to Jigsaw Curzon House. We have now completed a considerable redesign and refurbishment of the nursery’s interior and will be embarking on the redevelopment of the gardens in the forthcoming months.

The gardens are being developed to incorporate a sports facility that will be used to teach the children sports skills such as Football, Netball, Cricket & Rugby. The specialist area will also be suitable to develop the children’s all-round athletic skills catering for all levels and capabilities.

Our aim is for the Children at each nursery to benefit from all the facilities across each site irrespective of which nursery they attend meaning Forest School, the new sports facility and trips such as Coastal School, Horse Riding and Warrendale will be open to all at the appropriate age groups.

3rd World Hope

We recently sent a shipment of Christmas presents to the children that we support in Malawi as we do every year. Shaun, the founder of 3rd World Hope will hopefully be sending us some photographs after Christmas to share with our children at nursery.

Our partnership with 3rd World Hope remains one of our most significant achievements and the relationship we have established goes significantly beyond bricks, mortar and materials.

Our partnership began in 2010 with an initial aim of raising £10,000 by the end of 2013 and with the amazing support of our parents we were able to achieve this and begin work on the rebuild of a school in Malawi. With our parents continued support we have now raised a staggering £24,000 up until November 2018.


Environment and Sustainability

We believe that children are our future and therefore at Jigsaw we aim to ensure we do all we can to ensure our footprint is ethical. Several changes we have made in the last five years include; 

● Installation of solar panels in 2013 which reduced our electricity consumption by 60%.

● Switching from plastic to glass for our milk bottles, reducing 765 plastic containers a year to zero.

● Sourcing our fruit and vegetables locally, lowering our carbon footprint as we support local businesses.

● Having our nappies incinerated to stop them being dumped in landfills.

● Ensuring sustainability within our Forest School by sourcing materials from elsewhere/ other people.

● Up cycling our staff uniforms and children's uniforms.

● Encouraging parents and children to use reusable plastic cups for water to reduce our plastic cup consumption to zero.

● Promoting the environment within the curriculum and planning.

● Using online applications to minimise the use of paper as a means of communication between us and you.

We will continue to focus on enhancing our sustainability as we move forward.


Tapestry - A new progress record for development

'Jigsaw has moved on from using 2Simple and now uses a system called 'Tapestry'. This is similar to 2Simple but more inclusive for parents. Observations completed by staff are added to the child's online journal everyday meaning parents are able to log in and see what their child has been up to on that day. Parents are able to log in whenever they choose and even complete their own observations and send them to their child's Keyperson. This is a fantastic way to cement our partnerships with parents and means both parents and carers can work together to promote the best possible development and learning opportunities for every child.'


Moving with the times

Jigsaw now uses an online developmental progress record. This system is called 2simple. It allows us to track each child’s individual progress and highlights any areas to develop. We are able to ensure all children achieve in all areas of development and encourage them to exceed in their milestones. All our observations are sent to parents regularly via email for their perusal.


The Times

We at Jigsaw were contacted by the Times newspaper. They wanted to write a piece about our Nursery as they had heard about our NDNA award and were interested to know why we gained the title “Best Day Nursery in the UK”. We at Jigsaw lead the way in our provision thinking outside the box giving children opportunities they wouldn't necessarily have at home, allowing them to take calculated risks and encourage critical thinking.


Channel 5 News

Channel 5 news contacted us after reading the wonderful piece written in the Times. They asked if they could come and film us doing what we do amazingly well.  They wanted to know what sets us apart from all other nurseries and how we safely encourage children to use real tools during creative play at nursery.
