JIGSAW Early Years Consultancy

Adding IMPACT in Early Years.

At JIGSAW we work with you and your team to achieve the best outcomes for children. We are passionate about ensuring you are promoting excellent practice and that you are able to have IMPACT on children’s lives. JIGSAW understands the needs of all your staff, yourself and the children.  Our aim is to ignite and fuel the passion within you and your teams for the work you do.

We aim to deliver high-quality training and bespoke consultancy to all areas within Early Years, including childminders, pre-schools, and full daycare settings. We are also able to provide a Quality Improvement Inspection (Qii’s) service which will enable you to be ready for your inspection and to shine throughout the process. This will be completed by an ex early years inspector with years of experience in managing OUTSTANDING settings.
