Hi! I’m Jo Corbett

Welcome to my Jo Jingles classes in North Manchester, Rossendale and the surrounding areas

When my children were younger I took them 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 and then took on the Halifax area.  I have been running classes since 2004 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...

When my children were younger I took them 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 and then took on the Halifax area.  I have been running classes since 2004 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. We also go into schools and teach Reception and Year 1.  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.

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 OUR TEACHERS

  • Meet Gwen Tyler

    I joined Jo jingles in September 2015.

    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!

  • Meet Gill Thornley

    Gill is a vital part of our team! She creates the newsletters and keeps our website fresh and exciting. A mum who brought her children to Jo Jingles, she too caught the Jo Jingles ‘bug’.

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.

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!

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

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...

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.

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.
