In June, many of our children and parents took part in The Big Toddle – a sponsored walk with a difference. All proceeds went to help disadvantaged children across the UK. The Big Toddle is organised by Barnado's and is the UK's biggest under 5s charity event. We plan to take part in this year's event and raise even more for this excellent cause.
Each July, we host a graduation ceremony as we say goodbye to our leavers. The ceremony is an opportunity for children and parents to reflect and celebrate their achievements, as they prepare to continue their learning journey at primary school.
As they graduate, each child will receive a mortar board hat, certificate and a small gift as a memento of their time here at Jigsaw Montessori Nursery. We would like to congratulate this year's graduates and wish them all the best for the future!
In November, we hold our annual fundraiser for BBC's Children in Need. Children, staff, and parents take part in a fun-filled day with a 'superheroes' theme.
Children in Need provides an opportunity to dress up, have fun and to raise money to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
December is a busy month, here at Jigsaw. Our annual coffee morning is an opportunity for parents to socialise and enjoy an informal chat with nursery staff in a relaxed setting. This event is always well attended. We hope to see you at the next one.
There's also Christmas concert and the Christmas party, featuring lots of fun, games and a special guest or two!
Every February we host our annual 'Chatterbox Challenge' – an activity-packed fundraiser, with proceeds going to 'I Can' - a children's communication charity. Over 1 million UK children experience communication difficulties. I Can's mission is to ensure no child is left out because of speech and language difficulties. Jigsaw Montessori Nursery is proud to support this worthy cause.
