About Me

Birthday Parties and Weekly Musical Classes with “Jacqu’in the Box” have now been going strong for almost 25 years!

Entertaining babies and toddlers, Preschool children and older children up to age 12 since July 1999!

I started the fun drop-in babies music sessions up when my own children were 4 years old, 2 years old and 5 months old!
George is now almost 30 years old and recently got married in Ibiza. Robert is 27 and lives in West Palm Beach where he coaches soccer and Henry, my little guinea pig for the classes back in 1999, is now 24 and is a Daddy to my beautiful Granddaughters Isla-Rae and Emmie!

I was first introduced to music classes for kids when George was 18 months old when we attended a local franchise class.

George attended these baby classes for one term only. Even though I could tell that he loved the music and the chance to play instruments, he was far too young to grasp the concept of sitting still and listening to the teacher and consequently I would sit and get agitated and embarrassed if George wanted to get up and wander about.

I was quite an over protective mother at that time, as when George was just 17 months old I went in to labour at 36 weeks with his brother, but by some cruel act of nature the placenta detached whilst Harry was still inside and after he had been delivered by emergency caesarean he only survived for 48 minutes.

Somehow this made George even more special than I already knew that he was and I was determined that any groups that I took him to would first and fore-mostly be a tremendous amount of fun.

This is what “Jacqu’in the Box children’s entertainment is all about! I want the children to feel free to express themselves and wander and explore because I know that it is through fun, freedom and exploration at their own pace, that they learn and grow in confidence.

Felicity Grace, my daughter was born on 4th October 2010 and her arrival, after a 12 year gap since having my sons, injected a whole new lease of fun and life and inspiration into my special events and she given me greater inspiration and ideas to expand my party entertainment to incorporate Slime Creation and Cookery for older children too!

I absolutely love my work and feel truly blessed to be able to share such joy and wonderment with all your precious children….and I really hope that shows!
