Why did you choose Jo Jingles for your nursery sessions?
We asked our parents to select which external children's activity supplier they would like to do weekly sessions at the preschool and our parents chose Jo Jingles! It's been over a year now and we have never looked back as the children are gaining in confidence and building new listening and attention skills all the time.
How do Jo Jingles classes benefit children in Nursery and Pre-school settings?
Jo Jingles is an educational, singing and movement session which can also be linked to the guidelines set by the EYFS. Personal social and emotional development, physical development, communication and language - listening and attention, are the characteristics of effective learning and these all play a key part in the sessions run by Jo Jingles.
What can you expect from a Jo Jingles nursery class?
All children love to make noise and have fun, and with the help of Jo Jingles they do just this with a variety of instruments and their voice as sing, move and play along to different types of music. The classes introduce them to dynamics, pitch, and tempo and playing percussion instruments along to music is also a great way for the children to discover the pulse and beat of a song.
Basic skills such as listening, holding attention, following instructions and copying movements are developed in Jo Jingles classes and children will build social skills, gain confidence and stimulate key physical development from dancing and movement to music. By asking simple questions to engage children, language and communication skills are also developed.
