Little Hurrahs is the Brain Child of Jo Emmerson.

Before I became a mum, I worked in all kinds of roles, from PR Director to Housing Manager, from Weight Loss Consultant to Quality Control in a Chocolate Factory. It wasn't until I had my son, Ollie, in 2017 that I found my calling - and no, my calling was not to be a mum.

In fact, I had a pretty shocking time of it as a new mum, as I was hit hard by Post Natal Depression.

One of the biggest things that helped me to pull through that dark time

- and the thing which turned out to be my passion - was baby signing. 

I took my 6-month old son to classes with our excellent friend, Anna and

utterly fell in love with how transformative it was. The gift of being able

to communicate meaningfully with this small shouty human was

mindblowing. It completely changed my experience of parenting, gave

me the tools and techniques to begin to bond with the little squish, and

start to trust my instincts a bit.

 

I decided to train with the UK's leading Baby Signing Expert, Shelley

Ensor and I am proud to have been a part of her team at

Little Signers Club.

 

Since then, I have worked with over 1000 families, studied

different parenting techniques, put in many many hours of research into

the most up to date science behind child development and launched my own Company - Little Hurrahs.

My ONLY objective with Little Hurrahs is to help parents just like you find a little ease. To make parenting more comfortable, more intuitive, less stressful, less tearful. 

I do this in a few ways. 

I work directly with parents and carers of children aged 0 - 4 years, through my monthly Parents' Evenings. These evening sessions are small, delivered online, and are designed to ensure that any changes parents need to make are as easy, fun, supportive and become as instinctive as possible. 

I provide FREE resources, Cheat Sheets, Weekly Newsletters and blog posts with useful, fun and practical tools for parents to implement.

I also work with schools, nurseries, pre-schools and other childcare providers to help improve communication skills, and bring a passion for and understanding of BSL to children and grown-ups around the UK.

I LOVE my job, and I will happily talk about it until the cows come home, so if you're interested in what I do, or would like to know if I can help you, your family, your organisation in some way, then get in touch. Let's have a cuppa and a chat?

Take care,
