Hi! I’m Louise Hardyman

Welcome to my Jo Jingles classes in Halifax, Huddersfield and the surrounding areas

I have two children, Tomas aged 8 and Charlotte aged 5. I used to take my daughter to Jo Jingles classes and we absolutely loved them, so when the chance came up to teach the classes it was like a dream come true. 

But then things got even more exciting as I was offered the chance to take over the running of the Franchise so now I am looking forward to my new adventure.

I can't wait to see you at classes soon!


Jo Jingles offers fun, interactive music, singing and movement classes for preschool children…

With the help of our cheery mascot doll ‘Jo’ our specially trained and experienced class teachers run the most popular and established music and movement classes across the UK, Ireland and now Australia!

Lasting 30 to 45 minutes, our structured and interactive music and movement classes offer a fantastic educational activity for children from three months to five years of age.

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.

  • Meet Louise Hodder

    Hi I'm Louise and I run Jo Jingles classes in the Halifax area. Before having children of my own I had worked with children for 20 years, firstly in nurseries then as a nanny. When I had Seth, my first child, 8 years ago, we tried lots of different pre school classes but Jo Jingles was our definite favourite and we went for three years until Seth started nursery school, at that point I'd had my second child Scarlett and as soon as she was three months old we started Jo Jingles again! Our family have always loved Jo Jingles so when a job opportunity arose I had to apply! I've been running classes for over three years now and still love it!

  • Meet Louise Hardyman

    My name is Louise, I live in Slaithwaite with my family. I am a Hospital Pharmacy Technician and have put my career on hold while I bring up my two children.

    I love singing and music so when the opportunity came to work for Jo Jingles I jumped at the chance.

    Its lovely watching the children learn through music.


Just a little note to say a huge thank you, Madison and Georgia have loved coming to your classes.

Just a little note to say a huge thank you, Madison and Georgia have loved coming to your classes; Madison since she was a few months and Georgia since she was 2 weeks old!
Each week they have loved taking part in the different themed classes and playing all the different instruments. Your classes have been great for their development and also social skills. We’ve met some lovely little children and their parents/ grandparents over the years. They will really miss not coming to Jo Jingles and so will their Mummy!


Lottie and I just wanted to say a very big Thank You for all the hours of Jingling fun we’ve enjoyed with you.

Lottie and I just wanted to say a very big Thank You for all the hours of Jingling fun we’ve enjoyed with you. It doesn’t seem two minutes since I signed up with my 4 month old little dot, worried about being the only mum in the class with a special needs baby. How far me and Lottie have come since then! Thank you for providing such a lovely welcoming environment – in which Lottie has truly blossomed (to the extent where she seemingly considers herself your right hand woman). I put her love of music and passion for tidying firmly at your door and will always be grateful.
