Welcome to my Jo Jingles classes in Bury, Ramsbottom, Haslingden, Crawshawbooth, Rossendale, Rochdale (Castleton), Milnrow, Littleborough and Todmorden.
I took my own children to Jo Jingles classes and loved the mixture of fun and music. We lived in Surrey then and I was devastated when moving North that Jo Jingles was not there to greet me! So, when my youngest son went to nursery, I bought the Jo Jingles franchise in North Manchester. I have been running classes for 15 years now and I love going to work every day and having fun and music with my 'Jinglers'.

I took my own children to Jo Jingles classes and loved the mixture of fun and music. We lived in Surrey then and I was devastated when moving North that Jo Jingles was not there to greet me! So, when my youngest son went to nursery, I bought the Jo Jingles franchise in North Manchester. I have been running classes for 15 years now and I love going to work every day and having fun and music with my 'Jinglers'. I cannot imagine doing a different job, I see children starting from 3 months of age and watch them grow and develop until they go into school. I have trained Early Years Practitioners on how music provides those vital developmental links to Literacy, Language and Communication.
Jo Jingles is exciting, we are constantly introducing new music and activities, and our imagination knows no bounds; which is why parents/guardians enjoy coming to our classes as much as their children.
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.
Prior to that my husband and I were in the forces. When our little girl was 8 months old we moved abroad so I got involved in community groups and ran a couple of musical groups for the mums and children.
I always found these groups really helped us feel part of the community as they were both beneficial to the children and us mums. Music makes everyone happy and when we settled down Jo jingles was the perfect job.
I love seeing the children smiling and having fun. It's so rewarding seeing their confidence growing especially the very shy ones. (And that includes the mums)
Not many people get paid to have fun!

Looking forward to next week.

My little boy has attended the Castleton class for the last 8 months and its been great to see how much he has come on in the classes from falling asleep in his first class to today when he was crawling round and playing the instruments! The classes are fun for the babies (and parents!!)! Would highly recommend the classes to anyone with young children.

My boys absolutely love Jo and her Jo Jingles sessions I can’t recommend this enough worth every single penny! They look forward to it each week and have a ball with all the fun things Jo does during the session!! Wish I had found Jo and Jo Jingles a lot sooner!
Leah Mckeown - January 2019
Both my children absolutely love Jo Jingles and Jo and Gwen are so welcoming and friendly! Great music sessions for all ages xx
We just wanted to say a huge thank you! Your class was the best thing
for Devon and her daddy once my maternity leave finished and we moved
to Castleton because it was real daddy and daughter bonding time. It
was fun for Devon and good for my hubby to chat with other parents.
Thank you for being a wonderful Jo Jingles class leader.

Jo Jingles has been an important part of my children’s weekly routine for the last 6 years. I have three children and we have all attended Jo Corbett’s class on a Friday ever since my eldest child was a year old. Over the years all of my children have been enthralled, delighted and engaged by Jo and her classes. It has always been a big wrench for them when they have to stop attending Jo Jingles and start school. From a mum’s perspective it is obvious Jo works hard at forward planning her classes. The variety of topics covered, the mix of songs and instruments played, the ‘secret’ lessons delivered to children, for example learning to share and tidying up once an activity is over; it is very evident that this is intentional...
Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and fantastic sessions. Although Oliver is quite reserved when we are there, his singing at home...
Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and fantastic sessions. Although Oliver is quite reserved when we are there, his singing at home is now non-stop and it has done his confidence the world of good. Really sad we can't continue. Thanks again
Sally and Oliver
Thank you for all the happy memories you have given us over the last 6 years.
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.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation and guidelines provided by the Government and Public Health England* ( & all other relevant Regional Public Health agencies) our customers and class teacher safety and well-being is absolutely paramount.
Sadly, in view of the most recent news and recommendations Jo Jingles classes are now TEMPORARILY CLOSED in ALL areas.
However, you can still enjoy Jo Jingles @ Home – many of our Jingle areas are now offering fun online music sessions so contact your local Jo Jingles representative for further details either via Facebook or https://www.jojingles.com/find-class
During this very difficult time we want to support families at home and provide some musical fun and entertainment for children.
If you would like to also stock up on musical goodies to accompany the sessions visit Jo’s Shop at https://www.jojingles.com/shop – it’s business as usual, at this time, for all online orders received.
This situation is evolving rapidly, and we will keep you updated if things change but in the meantime we are continuing to follow all necessary health and safety guidelines.
We’ll also shortly be announcing some NEW and exciting Jingle products too!
We will really miss all of our lovely ‘jinglers’ but hope to see you & all your friends again very soon,
A huge THANK YOU for your ongoing support.
