I am very proud and excited to bring Hartbeeps to new areas in the North East!

It is as an absolute honour to be able to deliver these fun, interactive and developmental activities and games to your little people! 

Baby Beeps and Happy House has brought my baby and I so much joy over the months and I can't wait to share this with you! As a mother with a newborn, I joined as many classes as possible when I had my first baby as I had only moved to Newcastle from London 2 years prior. It not only made my baby ecstatically happy but it was a fantastic opportunity to meet new people, form new friendships and share experiences, advice and just have a laugh.

Just like you! I bring enthusiasm, encouragement and passion and want you and your child to have the best time with us. 

Until we meet,
Cristina x

Hi! My name is Gemma and I have been attending Hartbeeps since January 2020 with my little boy Austin. We started classes when Austin was only 3 weeks old, so we have been through the whole journey from a teeny tiny who slept through most of his first weeks, to currently attending the Walkers class where I can rarely get him to stay next to me most weeks - as he is too busy looking for Dexter!

I love Hartbeeps because I simply can't imagine our life without it, The memories we have made so far through attending are unbeatable and the benefits to his development are undeniable. Not to mention the collection of cute/funky headgear photos I have! Equally as important, I have also met a fantastic support network of other mummies, some of which have went on to become good friends. I am excited to be an imaginator because I want to help bring the same magic to other grown ups and little ones and be part of their memories. I also want to increase my knowledge in little ones development in order to support our customers wherever I can.

In my personal life - I love getting out and about with Austin, going for long walks, listening (and dancing around) to cheesy music, eating ice cream and spending time with my friends and family. I look forward to meeting some of you soon, please do say Hi! Gemma x

Hi! My name is Beth! I first heard about hartbeeps when my daughter was just a few weeks old! We started off with attending baby massage and then worked out way up to Happy House. My background is in nursing however after having my daughter I took a step back and found my love for working with children!


For me, hartbeeps was a way to escape everyday life and connect with my daughter; watching her grow and develop in a fun, energetic environment! We've made some amazing memories through Hartbeeps and some even more amazing friends who I know will stick with me for life!


Being an imaginator brings me so much joy knowing I'll be able up help your little ones develop and grow! I look forward to seeing you and having a boogie with you all!

Hi, I'm Karen and I'm thrilled to be getting groovy with you all each week!

Prior to joining the wonderful world of Hartbeeps, and after having my son, I spent nearly ten years developing a messy play company, where I provided babies and toddlers with the opportunity to make the kind of mess you'd never DARE to at home. I'm passionate about providing little ones with a nurturing environment in which they can express themselves, so swapping my overalls for a Hartbeeps tshirt is the perfect fit!

The early months and years you spend with your little one are such a special time and it's an absolute privilege to share that with you…now let's have some fun!

I’d heard lots of things about HartBeeps and didn’t know what to expect. It’s a mix of everything, including lots and lots of fun. It’s our favourite group and we look forward to it every week. Cristina is fantastic and the classes are so unique and varied. We can’t recommend it enough. Claire @ Benton
Cris is brilliant with my daughter and her classes are packed with fun, I can see how much my little girl has came on in just a few classes! Ashley @ Killingworth
Hartbeeps and in particular Cristina are amazing! The classes are so action packed and my daughter Maisie loves it! We go to Hepscott on a Saturday with my partner to so it’s a lovely family trip out to spend quality time together. Can not recommend this enough! Katie @ Hepscott
WOW!! Cherrie has started the term with bundles of energy and enthusiasm! It is evident how much she loves her job but also how much she missed it over the Christmas break! This is the highlight of our week! We feel welcomed, and my little one grows in confidence week on week! Cherrie is AWESOME! Anonymous 2022
"My main wish was for all the kids to have the best time and Hartbeeps definitely know how to achieve this - the photos speak for themselves! All grown ups were impressed too and I received a lot of positive comments from other parents and family members, all thoroughly enjoyed it." Hartbeeps party
I’ve been taking my little girl since she was 6 weeks old, first to the baby massage course and now to baby bells and it’s been brilliant! Cherrie is so lovely and really takes the time to chat to us and just really cares about us. I’ve also met some lovely friends, which has been amazing as I knew nobody before I started - so thank you for these groups and to Cherrie for running it! Anonymous
