Jo Jingles Update - We are very sad to confirm that due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation Jo Jingles classes are now TEMPORARILY CLOSED in ALL areas. See our full notice for further details on online sessions now available.

Hi! I’m Andreas Alkiviades

Welcome to my Jo Jingles classes in Grantham, Stamford, Melton Mowbray, Sleaford, Boston and the surrounding villages.

My main aim during our 45 minute classes are for all children, parents and carers to have heaps of fun with music, sound, rhythm and dance. And enjoy Jo Jingles as much as I do.

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 Vikki Norton

    Vikki trained in Musical Theatre near her hometown of Glasgow and moved to Stamford almost 10 years ago to help her husband run his theatre company. Over her years here she has been involved in many local theatre groups and youth theatres and has taught drama and musical theatre in various venues and schools. Vikki started attending Jo Jingles when her little boy was 4 months old and they both instantly loved it! The sessions are interactive, friendly, interesting, relaxed, creative and most of all fun! Vikki is incredibly excited to be joining the Jo Jingles team and can't wait to help your little ones discover and develop their own creativity and personalities through out the sessions.

I saw the classes online through social media at the start of lockdown. We did one of the free Facebook live sessions and Hugo was really engaged so I thought I’d sign up.
Hugo really enjoys the songs and the repetition every week, plus he loves playing with his instruments so songs with those are great too and really keep him engaged.
He’s always so focussed on Andreas and what he's doing he usually crashes out and falls asleep straight after class when he’d normally sleep later, so I know it has an impact on him. I also really like that the classes are on 'Zoom' and that Andreas says all the babies names in the hello and goodbye songs!

We chose Jo Jingles for Theodore as it seemed a really informal, friendly and enthusiastic class. We found Jo Jingles online after looking for baby classes in Grantham - even though we live nearby to the Grantham tennis club, we had clearly never walked past before or after class times as we had no idea it was there! We feel lucky we found it now.
When we started, I knew another mum and baby who would give it a go too so we joined together in February. We had such a good laugh even from the first session as Andreas is lively and entertaining, and very engaging with the children. We were singing and laughing along from the beginning which is a great icebreaker for chatting with other parents and carers.
Even now we are doing a few baby classes entirely online, Andreas is one of the few faces and voices Theo recognises through the phone or tv. He smiles and laughs along with Andreas and Jo and therefore I would describe Jo Jingles as fast becoming our favourite class to do as a family. Be warned however, the songs are catchy and my husband and I sometimes find ourselves singing bits of them long after Theo has gone to bed (oh dear, how embarassing!)

I’ve been going to Jo Jingles with Vikki since my baby George was 13 weeks old. He’s now 8.5 months and loves it more than ever. I can’t recommend her and Jo Jingles highly enough.

I’m a first time mum and knew I wanted to start a routine and get out of the house with my baby. Vikki is so warm and welcoming and makes you feel at ease straight away. All the other mums and dads were so friendly. George loves the classes and we have learnt so many songs which I sing to him at home. As a first time parent I didn’t know many songs/nursery rhymes and going to the class gives you so many ideas to take away with you.

To me it’s about precious quality time with my baby, away from any distractions. I love watching him in class, looking at the other babies and Vikki and getting so much pleasure out of his environment. I look forward to Jo Jingles every week.

The other parents and Vikki are so supportive and you can have a quick chat about other things, it’s great to get you and baby back in the 'wide world' after their birth. It’s been a highlight of my maternity leave and I plan on carrying on taking my baby in the week even when I go back to work.

I second that! My girls love going to Andreas’ classes, so much so we do a 150 mile round trip to go there. Although there are local classes to me I couldn’t imagine going to Jo Jingles & “Dreas” as my girls call him not running the class. There’s a real good atmosphere & the kids have a morning of pure happiness. Good job

I've never seen my baby enjoy a class as much as she does a Jo Jingles session hosted by Andreas! Andreas is fantastic - the babies are captivated by his enthusiasm and animated expressions! And I love watching all the babies have so much fun, they just can't control their excitement!

Our experience with Andreas has been fantastic! My daughter has loved his class above any other music class we’ve been too, always happy to be there and enjoying herself the whole time. Andreas is fantastic with the children and makes it a very personable experience, taking time to build bonds with the children as well as creating such a happy and fun environment. I couldn’t recommend enough!

My daughter Esmé and I really enjoyed Jo Jingles. From being shy and unsure at first, Esmé quickly grew in confidence as she learned the format of the classes.
The classes are engaging and fun and the children have the chance to dance, sing, move to the music and try out different instruments. They hug and kiss the Jo Jingles cuddly toy and through identifying with Jo, settle in and enjoy the session.
Esmé liked the calming section of the session where Andreas blew the children little slow popping bubbles. This was mesmerising for the little ones and helped them wind down for some quiet time.

Having had Jo Jingles at Albion House Nursery for almost a year, the children absolutely love it! They really look forward to the Friday morning sessions with Andreas and Jo, and we can often cheer up a sad child by reminding them the Jo Jingles is coming!
Andreas is great with the children and they respond to him really well. From a nursery manager's point of view it is great to have a man in the setting because for us this is very rare. Even the shy children want to sit next to him and are happy to join in.
When I asked the children what their favourite bit of Jo Jingles was, they quickly listed so many different things; the singing, the dancing, the playing instruments, the getting a sticker at the end!!
All in all the children love the sessions Andreas does, they have so much fun and learn new songs which is great for the staff too as they get new ideas.
The staff also join in with the sessions and enjoy them too. I feel this is important as they are learning the songs and the actions with the children, and setting a role model for the children and helping those who need it.

My son Harrison has just finished his first half term with Andreas and Jo. Harrison's confidence and ability to socialise with other children has grown so much since joining Jo Jingles which is all thanks to Andreas` hard work.
Harrison was very shy and hid behind me at our first session over the summer but Andreas had him singing and dancing before the end of the session. Andreas has a wonderful ability to get to know each child individually and how to get the best out of them.
Harrison and I had tried many different toddler classes and none come close to being as good as Jo Jingles.
I highly recommend Andreas and Jo.
