Welcome to Hartbeeps. Designed by experts, fuelled by magic, delivered with love!
Come and experience the amazing world of Hartbeeps with classes to complement and enhance every stage of your child’s early years.
At Hartbeeps we put your child at the heart of our magical adventures. We offer original and super fun developmental baby and toddler classes. All our classes are set to a sound track of original songs, remixed nursery rhymes and lullabies. Our award winning classes take little people and their grownups on a magical sound journey each session, combining beautiful music, beautiful puppets and fabulous props. Our classes bring stories, themes, characters, language, movement and more to life through specially developed songs, sound plays, soundscapes and sound effects. Each session brings something new!
All programmes have been structured around the key areas of learning and development for early years; communication and language, physical development, personal, social and emotional development, literacy, mathematics, understanding of the world and expressive arts and design. It sounds complicated but singing, making music, early years signing and make believe is a truly magical mix giving plenty of opportunities to lay the foundation blocks in these areas. Through play we can connect with other human beings. Play also provides us with a sense of calmness and relaxation, as well as a source of stimulation for the brain and body. It helps us be more inventive, smart, happy, flexible, and resilient and is a sure (and fun) way to develop your imagination, creativity, problem-solving abilities and mental well-being.
Hartbeeps sessions last 50 mins but please allow an hour
Two Hartbeeps classes are available to suit your child’s stage of development:
Adventures in rhythm, baby babbles and beyond
Baby classes suitable from sitting to toddling
Our bouncy, interactive baby development class that focuses on early language acquisition. Every class is a fun-filled adventure through Baby Land with wacky characters, lighting effects, cool props and parachutes that you won't see anywhere else. The class is set to a funky soundtrack of original baby songs, remixed nursery rhymes and lullabies. From the everyday to the truly spectacular, everything we do in Baby Beeps is magical.
The Babybeeps™ programme has adopted its very own technology ‘Soundplay Systems™’ which involves a series of methodologies to enhance communication between baby and adult. The effects are dynamic and we regularly witness large groups of babies captivated by our rhythmic babble raps, claps and songs.
Take a sound journey into story land
Toddler classes from walking to 4 years
Our fun-filled, highly interactive toddler class for busy toddlers, pre-schoolers and their little siblings! We put the children at the heart of our story as we explore the Happy House and beyond! Expect music, drama, creative play, dance and movement all set to a fantastic soundtrack of remixed nursery rhymes, funky, original kids songs and familiar lullabies. Happy House is all about confidence as well as physical and emotional development. The class helps prepare young minds for a lifetime of learning through play.
Children recognise and enjoy the rituals of entering our ‘make-believe’ happy house and the world of imagination. Each session is themed and different whilst repeating some familiar songs and patterns to allow a safe environment for learning and exploring. The pattern of the class gives plenty of opportunity for development starting with whacky warm ups, listening exercises and puppetry. Then moving onto a unique themed play session before we wind down and relax with quiet time that provides chance for light effects, exploring, bonding and relaxation.
Prices & booking
Baby Beeps and Happy House classes run in terms which can be joined at any time, as long as there is space on the class. The cost is £5.50 per session. Twins / second children are half price. Term prices include unlimited free entry for you and your child to Little Stars & The Milky Way Adventure Park. So you can visit as often as you like, including at weekends and school holidays! One off sessions can also be booked when we have availability for £7 per session including stay and play on the day.
Please note whilst another adult can bring your child to the session and get free entrance on the class day, on non-class days it is only the named adult and child that can use the class pass; i.e. it is not transferable to another adult/child. For extra adults to gain entrance to Little Stars the normal £2 entrance applies and can be paid on the day but note entry to classes themselves are subject to prior agreement with the class leader/manager as space might be limited.
Also, older siblings are not allowed on the baby classes but younger siblings are welcome on the pre-schooler classes and are free of charge if under one or half price if over one. This is for both drop ins and block bookings.
