The do re mi Story

do re mi was established in 2013 by Dr Jane Todd, previously a primary school teacher (state and private sectors) and School Leadership team. Jane is a Durham University graduate, holding a first class honours degree in Education, Qualified Teacher Status, Masters degree with distinction in Educational Policy, and a Doctorate in Education.

Alongside her time in the classroom, lecturing and her academic research, Jane is also a mother to two boys. When the eldest was born, Jane was fascinated by the difference music made to his early development. It was whilst on maternity leave that Jane's dream of do re mi started to become a reality. Jane’s understanding and recognition of the importance of music for all children drove her to develop a way for more children to be able to benefit from her educational and musical knowledge and experience.

do re mi Day Nursery, Britain's first nursery founded on a musical approach opening its doors in January 2014. Jane has been interviewed by both 'Nursery World' and 'Teach Nursery' publications on her unique approach and the benefits it has in children’s formative years.
