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!

Whether you're looking for a sanity-saving new baby or toddler group, a good local business or even that dream mum-suitable job, we can help!

About Jo Jingles

Hi! I’m Carole Newall
Welcome to my Jo Jingles classes in Saffron Walden, Haverhill, Bury St Edmunds & Sudbury

I’m delighted to run the Jo Jingles franchise in Saffron Walden and West Suffolk. With the support of my class teacher Lizzie we currently offer over 16 classes every week in the local area and in a number of nurseries too.

I attended Jo Jingles classes as a parent with both our boys for 4 years. Jo Jingles has always played a huge part in our family life and has definitely been the most rewarding and enjoyable activity that we as a family have done together. ‘Big Jo’ is adored by both the boys and they have had so much fun with him over the years. My husband and I believe that as a direct result of regular Jo Jingles classes, not only have they both flourished musically but also in confidence and self-esteem.

When the previous Franchisee decided to move abroad in 2011 it seemed the perfect opportunity for me to return to work, and unlike my previous career in Marketing, it fitted around family life perfectly.

I look forward to welcoming you to Jo Jingles West Suffolk and sharing lots of fun and rewarding times with you and your child/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.


If you decide to give Jo Jingles classes a try, you can expect:

  • A safe environment with a warm and friendly welcome!
  • Classes which are carefully structured and designed according to age and ability.
  • A weekly introduction to new and fun educational themes such as, colours, shapes, numbers and animals.
  • We also use well-known nursery rhymes, games, props, visuals and action songs to get little bodies jingling along!                                           
  • But the learning experience goes further than that!

Every child will get some hands-on fun with at least two percussion instruments each week including-

  • Tambourines
  • Drums
  • Bells

Watch as they join in with Little Jo who brings special surprises in his bag each week and is always ready to move to the music with fun actions – and with over 1,000 songs under his belt, from old favourites to the more unique, you can rest assured every class is different from one week to the next!
