Jo Jingles provides the fun and educational Music, Singing and Movement experience for babies and young children. With the help of their Jo Jingles doll, trained and experienced presenters run the UK's most popular music and movement classes.
The first Jo Jingles classes started in 1991 and were so successful they led to the launch of the franchise in 1995. They are now well established as the leading provider of structured and interactive music, singing and movement classes with an educational slant for children from 3 months to 5 years of age. (All class age groups are subject to availability and in some areas they run classes for children aged up to 7 and 8 years of age). Jo Jingles sessions welcomes children with special needs.
Jo Jingles is the heart and soul of their classes. He acts extremely friendly and actively participates in their classes. At the start of each session he welcomes all children with a smile, a wave and a cuddle.
Then he might sing or dance or pretend to be a train driver, a monkey or even a teapot! Sometimes he hides and we have to look for him and other times he falls asleep and he needs some help to wake up.
Sometimes he is shy and we have to encourage him to join in with the fun.
But Jo always makes time for plenty of hugs and kisses when it's time for the children to say goodbye.
Jo Jingles loves to stimulate young minds and teach children to:
The main aim of the 30/45 minute session (depending on age) is that the children have fun...lots and lots of fun! As do Mums, Dads, Grandparents and Carers who are actively encouraged to join in!
Attendees pay per session - their are no joining or membership fees.
A franchisee can obviously run several sessions a week at different locations around an area.
Jo Jingles franchisees can also provide classes in many early years settings including national nursery chains, SureStart and Children’s Centres. They also run classes in Primary Schools and After School clubs (for children up to 7 or 8 years of age in some areas), as well as offering ‘Parent & Child’ classes.
It is widely recognised that singing and active music making with young children can help aid development in many areas other than just musical appreciation.
The aim of Jo Jingles is to encourage learning and development through fun and structured classes and all of their sessions feature educational themes and a variety of activities to suit all children’s learning styles and preferences.
