What We Do

Being a mum is one of the hardest jobs you can do, and us mums need all the support we can get to stay whole and keep a sense of self in amongst the craziness of family life.

Mums That Can provides useful information relevant for women in their local and surrounding areas.

We aim to help you answer all those questions floating around in your head: where is the children's centre? What groups can I visit with my child today? How am I going to fill up my day without the CBeebies repeats? Am I ever going to have a life again?

For mums looking for something to do with their little (and not so little) ones, we have information on local baby groups, mums and tots toddler groups, and activities for older children.

We provide a cost effective web presence for relevant local and national businesses and services (whether they are run by mums or not), and support local women with children setting up or growing their own businesses and finding family-friendly employment.

So click on your local area, take a look at these pages and see how we can help! If your local area isn't here, get in touch and let us know you need us!

About Boogiewoogies

I set up Boogiewoogies in 2012, when my boys were just 2 and 9 months. I saw a gap at the time in Saffron Walden for a ‘drop in’ music and movement class. I love music and wanted to create a fun new preschool group. 

 I grew up listening to my dads guitar and having always enjoyed singing and playing piano, I started singing lessons at 11 years of age. During my secondary school, 6th form and university days, I always juggled my academic studies with my love for music and singing. I enjoyed my youth as a vocalist in a band and weekends were taken up with gigs. I absolutely loved it! Singing is my passion. 

I love bringing different themes, sensory, and creative ideas to Boogiewoogies.  

I am thankful that 5 years on, Boogiewoogies is still going strong.

I currently run classes for babies – preschoolers – Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in Saffron Walden and Tuesdays at The Nurture Barn, Great Bardfield.

I also run sessions at The Barn nursery school in Thaxted and Offer party entertainment too.

I really do appreciate all the support from local families for allowing me to do what I love.
