* The person taking swimming lessons gets free entry when accompanied by another person paying full price.


Jigsaw: Every Child Counts

Too often we hear the expression ‘every child counts,’ but what does this actually mean? At Jigsaw each child is recognised as having different qualities that should be nurtured and developed in a safe environment with fun and friendship at the forefront.

With a high volume of talent shows on TV it is often assumed that performing arts is associated with a thirst for fame and stardom. Of course, there are many Jigsaw students who are destined for stage success. However, the skills that are developed at Jigsaw are much more centred on confidence, self-expression and individuality. To obtain this, Jigsaw pride themselves on running small classes with top quality performing arts teachers who have the patience to cater for and inspire every single child.

Jigsaw work to instil into children at a young age the belief that they can achieve their goals, whatever they may be.   If they can do that, they feel they have succeeded.   For more information about Jigsaw’s classes call 020 8447 4530 or visit
