Hello, I'm Lynne and I launched the Award Winning Hartbeeps classes in Alloa and Clackmannanshire in Spring 2017. It has been an absolute pleasure to meet so many wee Hartbeepers and their grown ups and share my own Hartbeeps Imaginator Journey with them all.
As Mum of three grown up children Kirsty, Calum and Jaime and Gran to Robert, born in 2015 and growing fast, I had the opportunity to leave work in 2016 and had no idea that within a few weeks of my retiring I'd be off down the Hartbeeps Rabbit Hole on my very own Hartbeeps adventure.
My first Hartbeeps Falkirk, class with Robert as a toddler, was magical, welcoming, inspiring, enjoyable and packed full of fun and anticipation for the next exciting song, activity and prop to dive into and share in Robert's play and wonderment.
In retiring and becoming a Hartbeeps Imaginator I've come back to where I began my working life in Pre-School care and Education as a Nursery Nurse and later as a Paediatric Nurse, training over 30 years ago in Edinburgh Sick Children's Hospital. ( Smiling here and can't believe I'm actually saying that :) )
I've been involved in training and employability for the last 20 years enabling young people to move into childcare and adult care and a wide range of vocational sectors.
I have always been most engaged when showing potential educators, the value of play and the scope for learning when sharing opportunities for play in all settings.
Any excuse to sing or create and I'm there much to the embarrassment of my long-suffering husband, children, work colleagues and young people on their first steps to study or employment.
I am looking forward to meeting all of the Hartbeepers who now have the opportunity to experience the Magic Sprinkles of Hartbeeps in Alloa and Clackmannanshire and updating this BIOG regularly with “Big Adventures in Hartbeeps" from the “Wee County".
