Meet Our Staff

Teachers and assistants with exceptional experience in early childhood care
Jigsaw operates at a higher ratio of staff than the minimum Ofsted requirements, as we recognise that children's involvement and learning are supported more effectively, and there are fewer interruptions to their interactions, with a higher number of staff.

Eight members of staff are qualified first aiders and have food hygiene training. All staff regularly attend Child Protection training and all staff has access to the training and development programme run by Surrey Early Years Service. All staff have annual appraisals, regular supervision sessions and there are weekly internal training and staff meetings. The setting develops and delivers an annual setting and staff development plan.
