Baby & Toddler Groups, Preschool Music & Movement

West End Wigglers

Baby and Toddler groups with a difference. Incorporating movement, sensory play and story telling with music from musicals, TV, film and stage, as well as the old classics.

Hi! I’m Jo, and I am the creator and main class leader for West End Wigglers.
I grew up in Burgess Hill and after many years living and performing in London have returned to the area to raise my two beautiful (and slightly sassy) young girls.
West End Wigglers was born from a brainwave I had many years ago about incorporating my love of Musical Theatre into a baby/toddler group setting. It wasn’t until I had children of my own and after attending many baby groups with my first born, listening to the same nursery rhymes every week, that I realised there was definitely space for this idea.
Don’t get me wrong, I still know importance of those well loved, well known songs and rhymes. They are still very much used in my classes. However, I wanted to create something a little different. Something a parent or carer attending the class might also enjoy too!

After many a sleepless night and not much time for yourself, I appreciated the importance of trying to carve out a little ‘me time’ in those early years of parenting and having something to enjoy yourself alongside your children.
I finally took the bull by the horns in June 2021 during the second year of lockdown and after my second child had been born. Due to Covid, she hadn’t been to a single baby class and had barely met another child her age.
As there wasn’t much in the way of groups running, despite rules relaxing and allowing them to resume, I took the opportunity to start my own.
I started with two groups of limited numbers, which quickly turned to three as interest grew. By the summer, three groups had turned to four, and two more groups started in Burgess Hill.
By Jan 2022 a third venue was added, meaning in the first year of Wigglers running we have expanded to eight groups running between Haywards Heath, Hassocks and Burgess Hill as well as incorporating other events into our calendar, such as birthday parties, festive concerts at Easter and Christmas and even something just for the adults with singalong cocktail nights.
We have great plans to keep growing West End Wigglers and providing something for everyone to enjoy, child and adult alike.
