About Us

Our Jigsaw

We are a leading British Nursery in the heart of the city, conveniently located near the corner of Delma St and Karama St, in Abu Dhabi. We pride ourselves in providing high quality, flexible childcare for babies and children from 45 days old to 5 years.  At Jigsaw, we take a child-centered approach to learning.

We follow the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework and base our topics and activities, where possible, on children’s own experiences encouraging them towards independent thinking and an appreciation of diversity. We focus on the development of the whole child with the aim of producing confident, creative and socially capable children who are able to follow routines and guidelines at the same time as making choices for themselves. We invite you to come and view our wonderful facilities and meet our fantastic teaching team.
