Jigsaws Childcare keeps the stay and play service running

The nursery, based in Church Fenton, aims to nurture, inspire, challenge and enthuse your child as they take their first steps in the world.

With a number of rooms specifically designed to give your child the care and attention they need, the nursery’s vision is to create a place that is secure and values caring, respectful relationships.

We had a chat with the business manager, Helen Smith, to find out what has been happening at the nursery and update you on the latest news.

Helen told Tadcaster Echo: “Over the last seven years we have worked really closely with the local Children’s Centres in Tadcaster, Sherburn and Selby. Jigsaws supported Stay and Play groups, with Children’s Centre staff: groups where mums, dads, grandparents, childminders and carers could bring pre-school children for fun, new play ideas, song time and a healthy snack.

“Unfortunately in July the Children’s Centre had to review their local priorities and staff took on other roles. However, at Jigsaws we wanted to keep offering the Stay and Play service to the Tadcaster community, as it seemed such an essential way for children to meet other friends and families and get the support they may need.

“With the help of a few volunteer parents, the support of The Barn and David Gluck the centre manager, Jigsaws has been able to keep this essential group running.

“The Barn on the corner of St Joseph’s Street and Leeds Road is a great venue to run the Stay and Play Group with lots of space to create different learning and fun areas for the children. Our group runs every Tuesday from 9.30am till 10.45am and everyone is welcome.”
