Hi! I’m Gill Pretious

Welcome to my Jo Jingles classes in Barnehurst, Bexley, Gravesend, Meopham & Stone

I am a mum to 4  teenagers / young adults ranging from 16-22 years, as you can imagine life is very hectic in our house!  I am a qualified NNEB nurses Nurse and have always worked with children in various settings such as Nurseries, schools, special need centres and as a private Nanny.

I feel every child should have access to music at an early age, there are so many benefits and I wanted to bring this into the community in which I Iive.  I love music and play a variety of instruments. and I also attend The Salvation Army on a weekly...

I feel every child should have access to music at an early age, there are so many benefits and I wanted to bring this into the community in which I Iive.  I love music and play a variety of instruments. and I also attend The Salvation Army on a weekly basis where music is an integral part of our worship. 

I love being creative and hopefully that comes across in the classes I prepare. It gives me great satisfaction to send grown ups and children home with a huge smile on their faces!

He is extremely friendly and actively participates in all of our 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. Sometimes 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 he always makes time for plenty of hugs and kisses when it’s time for the children to say goodbye.

    I have been working for Gill for over 2 years now and love my Jo Jingles classes.  I have 2 boys of my own and lead a busy life looking after her family.

    Having attended the Italia Conti School I have always been involved in singing in one way or another and have sung with the Blackheath Conservatoire and entered various singing competitions.  I also have a level 3 in British Sign Language and often use signing in class where appropriate.

Gill - you are an inspiration! We have so enjoyed our Friday mornings for the last 2 and a bit years due to your enthusiasm, energy and engaging activities, which have given Sadie a real love for music. Sadie loves you and overtime we drive past the church hall she asks if she can go in and say hello to you! (I think she thinks you live there!). Thank you so much for being a wonderful first teacher to Sadie and for all the fun.

Thank you for being Sophie & Jack's teacher. They have both really enjoyed it and I know that Jack will miss Jo Jingles as well as me. I'm sure he will still play 'Jo Jingles' at home as he does every day and pretends to be 'Gill' so you will never be forgotten. I would always recommend you to other people.

This is just a little note to say Thank You, not only for the service you provide for young children and their parents, but for the attentive patience you have shown my children. Your dedication to and appreciation of the children you work with is obvious. Every child is an individual and treated with caring respect which creates a wonderful environment for them to flourish while thoroughly enjoying themselves. My two have done this in spades - so from Ilona, Valo and myself a huge thank you.
