Jigsaw is a specialist provision for up to fifteen pre-school age children from across the London Borough of Richmond with social and communication needs, including autism. The provision provides a communication-centred environment that supports the children in all areas of their learning.
The Jigsaw staff consists of a teacher in charge and early years educators. There is Speech and language therapy and Occupational therapy support every two weeks. By combining equally the disciplines of teaching and speech and language therapy the team is able to plan and deliver a highly specialised curriculum.
Each child follows an Individual Education Plan based on his/her developmental needs across all areas of the Foundation Stage curriculum. The Jigsaw provision children integrate with Windham Nursery during free playtime. There is also a reverse integration programme in which Windham Nursery children take part in Jigsaw activities.
The Jigsaw Unit is open 5 days a week. We have three classes that run Monday to Friday. There are two morning classes from 8.45am–11.30am and one afternoon class from 12.45–3.30pm with the child attending for either 5 mornings or 5 afternoon sessions.
