MEET YOUR CREW

Hi, my name is Kay and I am a wife and mum to two beautiful girls. I live in Worcester and love what the city has to offer for children and adults alike.

For the past 6 years, I have run, on and off a charity music group for babies and toddlers here in Worcester. Teaching children rhythm, colours, counting, and movement through the magic of music.

However, in addition to the charity group which I love running, I wanted to create something new and exciting for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers to enjoy and knowing how much they engage with music it had to be musical!

This is where Amy and I started talking and using our expertise to create ‘Jungle Jiggle’.

We are extremely proud of what we have created!

Jungle Jiggle is a fun, exciting and interactive music group for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers with a difference!

We have some very cute and lovable jungle animals for you and your little ones dance, sing, learn and have fun with!

In my previous roles I have worked for the Worcestershire County Council where I wrote and delivered training sessions for Children’s Services.

Since leaving the Council to have my second daughter I trained and qualified as a childminder. So in addition to the fun I have with Jungle Jiggle  I also run a successful breakfast and afterschool club for my local school where I look after and have great fun with 4 – 11 year old children.

I really love working with children and get great pleasure watching them learn and grow whatever their age.

My name is Amy and I am a wife and Mum of two beautiful children living in Worcester. I have been a stay at home Mum since the birth of my son. Before having children I studied Speech and Language Therapy and Early Childhood studies.

Through my studies I learnt the importance of the Early Years in Children’s development and believe in giving children the opportunity to learn through play.

Being a Mum I truly understand the importance of finding a group to take children to that will allow them to learn, develop and interact with others whilst having fun! Also a group that we as parents can enjoy going to meeting others and making friends.

I was totally thrilled when a friend, and now business partner felt the same, and together we decided to put our expertise into creating something truly magical!

Jungle Jiggle is a music group full of fun, colours, songs and of course our wonderful jungle friends for your littles ones to sing, dance and learn with.  We at Jungle Juggle will be using our imaginations, creative resources and our wonderful music to take you and your littles ones on a fabulous Jungle Journey, with fun at every turn.

Jungle Jiggle Co Creator

I’m Russell Underwood a singer songwriter, originally from Coventry, but I now live in Kidderminster with my wife and 2 children. I have been in many bands over the past 20 years, varying in genre, volume and success, I have also written songs/music to brief on numerous occasions in the past, although this is the first full album of material written to brief.

I was thinking of writing some songs for children when I met Kay and Amy from Jungle Juggle, it was clear, within moments, that all three of us shared the same vision for what the sound, approach and feel of the music for Jungle Jiggle should be.

I have enjoyed the whole project, working with Kay and Amy, immensely. The individual characteristics of the Jungle Jiggle animals has come out in the songs so strongly that I feel I know them well and consider each of them friends! I am really looking forward to writing more music for Jungle Jiggle and finding out what other adventures these lovable and sometimes cheeky jungle animals will have!
