Meet Viv | Jo Jingles
Please tell us a little bit about you:
Hi, my name is Viv and with my class teacher Michelle I run the Jo Jingles franchise for Epsom2leatherhead.
I have been teaching classes since September 2006 and am passionate about the benefits music can bring to even the youngest children.
I originally worked as a children’s wear designer during which time I had my three girls of my own!
Upon the birth of my third daughter I found the work/home balance more and more difficult to juggle and so decided to stay at home and bring up my children (much harder than any other job I’ve ever done!).
Once they were all in full time education I became a classroom assistant in Reception at the local primary school. This gave me a greater insight into the differences between boys and girls and also how they learn!! I then became a class teacher with Jo Jingles in 2006.
Please tell us more about your classes:
Starting from 3 months we see the progression through the age groups up to 5 years, welcoming lots of siblings along the way.
Our classes are well structured to provide a fun and interactive environment which brings 45 minutes of musical fun every week.
Jo Jingles has established itself as the most comprehensive pre-school music group in the UK and I am very proud to be part of a professional national network which provides excellent music education in a fun and interactive way.
It is a well-documented fact that young children can only focus on a task for about 15 minutes at a time.
Jo Jingles classes are structured to hold their attention for a full 45 minutes through song and actions, instruments and movement.
The classes are constantly changing to keep the children’s attention focused – ideal preparation for a classroom environment.
