Hartbeeps Ascot, Bracknell & North Reading

Rachel Regan - Session Leader

Hi, I'm Rachel and I look after Hartbeeps in Ascot, North Reading, Bracknell and Basingstoke!

I used to work in the corporate world of television, travelling in to London every day but everything changed after having my first daughter, Maddie.

Watching Maddie grow and change, taking in the world around her and trying to make sense of everything, I have found nothing short of a miracle!

After her birth, I very quickly realised I had discovered a passion for babies and children. Babies and children delight in the everyday, they see the world so differently to grown-ups and I am fascinated with how they make sense of the world.

I started taking Maddie to Hartbeeps when she was eight weeks old and I had never experienced anything quite like it! I had taken her to other classes but there was something very special about Hartbeeps. It felt truly magical! In the early days it helped us to bond, and as she got older, we enjoyed going on magical adventures in the older classes together. Maddie now has a sister, Amelie, and Amelie adores going on Hartbeeps adventures! We're always doing the "Tidy Time" song at home - they love it!

I am hugely proud to be part of the magical adventure that is Hartbeeps, and I'm looking forward to seeing you enjoy it with your little one too!

Hi, I'm Gemma, and my background is in teaching dance and performance.

I've been running Hartbeeps classes for two and a half years and have loved letting my inner child out, spreading Hartbeeps magic and madness in classes - something my 2 young kids have enjoyed too!

I am now very happy to be able to bring the joy, and education of Hartbeeps, into nurseries. I'm excited to continue my journey in helping little ones to grow in confidence, and interact and express themselves through movement and music. I'm really looking forward to more magic sprinkles!

Hi, I'm Kirsten! In my previous life I was in the Performing Arts, then I became a primary school teacher. When my son was born in January 2018, I knew I needed a change of pace but still wanted to work with children. Then Hartbeeps fell into my lap and seemed like it was written for me! Seeing the children develop every week is such a privilege and building the relationships with families, whilst encouraging lifelong skills is a perfect amalgamation of my experiences. As well as my son, I have a gorgeous stepson so our house is all go most of the time!

"Amazing classes! My little boy is an absolute fan of the babybeeps classes. ore and more smiles every week!"
"Started taking my baby along to our local session and she absolutely loves it."
"What a magical experience! For both baby and me.. My group organiser … is absolutely lovely and is so in tune with the mums and babies. you can tell she really loves her job too"
