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 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!
We really love coming to Hartbeeps! Now I'm working from home it's one of the highlights of my week! Rachel always makes the sessions fun and different and we love all the different props she brings - if only to get that hilarious photo to send to the WhatsApp family! We really enjoy the singing and it's lovely to see my little man progressing each weekCharlie, Caversham
Great class every week. Relaxed atmosphere and leader is very engaging, creative and fun.Emma, Bracknell
I am not normally one for baby classes but my 8 month old absolutely loves this one and you really get into it seeing them enjoy it and I leave feeling good!Rebecca, Bracknell
Hartbeeps is fantastic!!! My little girl's face week on week grows in excitement and enthusiasm for what 'magic' will unfold during each week's class. If you only do 1 class with your baby make it Hartbeeps; it's fab and really engages babies from the tiny to the toddling. Rachel leads our class and is fantastic.Rachel, Bracknell
Rachel is amazing at her job, she puts so much effort and energy into each session, it really made a difference for us. Each session is packed with activities, there is always plenty of audio- visual and tactile stimulation for my baby and he seems to thoroughly enjoy himself. Overall highly recommended.Tanya, Bracknell
