Welcome to Hartbeeps Bishop's Stortford, Harlow and Surrounds where we run magical, musical, multi-sensory classes for babies and toddlers. We have classes in Little Hadham (just outside Bishop's Stortford), Sawbridgeworth, Harlow and Epping. We are a fun-loving team of four Imaginators called Sharon, Kerrie, Sarah and Robin, and between us run 27 classes a week, so hopefully you will find something to suit you. We lead the full range of classes so that if your little one loves the Hartbeeps magic they can come from 6 weeks old in Baby Bells (6 weeks - sitting), progress through Baby Beeps (sitting unaided to starting to toddle) and stay for Happy House until they are 4.
In our classes, we put your child at the centre of all we do and the classes are highly interactive between your child and their very special grown-up. We take a sound journey each week filled with twinkly lights, bubbles, a multitude of interesting props and dress-up, role-play, wacky puppet characters and so much more!
Check availability and book a course, or join a waiting list here. Please note that we do require all classes to be booked in advance before the day you wish to start coming via our website. This is to ensure that we have spaces and props for everyone, that you our covered by our insurance and to comply with current government guidelines regarding Covid-19 measures such as the Track and Trace system.
Please feel free to email Sharon at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

Keeping everyone safe is our top priority.
- Ts and Cs: Please note that we have made some changes to our sessions and polices as a result of Covid-19. Until further notice, special terms and conditions apply that reflect those changes. Therefore please read these through before attending our classes.
- Class protocols: We anticipate that your classes will take place after stage 4 of restrictions has been lifted. This being the case, please be mindful that even though face coverings and social distancing is no longer compulsory, that it is still advised that you take additional precautions when mixing with other families inside. Therefore we ask that out of respect for other members of the class, you still wear a face covering when entering the building and using communal areas and you may wish to consider still wearing a mask or visor throughout the class, especially at times when Covid-19 rates are high or rising. Please continue to use sanitiser or wash your hands on entry and exit of the building and do not attend a class if you or your little one are meant to be isolating, awaiting the result of a Covid-19 test or show any recognised symptoms of the virus.
- Props: Our props will be cleaned and disinfected regularly. We have a UV light box and Clinell wipes for when we need to quickly disinfect props in session too. Please try not to allow your child to share or take anyone else's props. For older babies and toddlers it would be good to have a favourite toy or comforter on hand at the top of your bag to give as an alternative. We are unable to provide any blankets and pillows at this time. Please therefore bring your own blanket for your baby to lie on, or for your toddler to snuggle up with in our Quiet Time at the end of the session.
- Training and risk assessments: We have introduced various procedures in our classes, designed to encourage social distancing and for infection control purposes. All our Session Leaders have undertaken extra training and have been provided with PPE and extra cleaning materials. All of our procedures have been reviewed in line with government guidelines and our risk assessments have been updated.
- Adult attending class: If a person other than the adult listed on your booking will be bringing your child/ children to Hartbeeps, please email email@example.com in advance with their full name and contact details which we must legally keep a record of for 21 days for Track and Trace purposes. Thank you for your help with this matter.

Loved the classes! It’s good that the beginning and end are the same each week so my baby felt comfortable but the middle part of the class is always different. I think the tummy time part and quiet time at the end are brilliant. Max loved all the things to touch during tummy time and the lights at the end of the session. Aimee was brilliant and full of - Christine, Baby Bells mummy
We have just started Hartbeeps. I and my two boys love it! It’s really interactive for both parents and children and it’s been a lovely bonding experience too. It’s so refreshing to find a class that caters for children with younger siblings. I have been struggling to find classes that would be suitable for both my 2.5 year old and 13 month old. Best c - Ellen, Happy House mummy
I attended Hartbeeps a few years ago with my daughter and am delighted to be back with my son. It really is so magical. My little boy absolutely loves every second. Takes after mummy and spends the whole time with huge wide eyes & the biggest smile. It's good to be back. I was so delighted when a space became available - Katie, Happy House mummy
My little man and I love this class. Been going now since he was around 7 months, he is now 16months and we will continue to carry on until we can no longer go. Have so much fun and Sharon is the best. Engages all children and makes hartbeeps what it is. - Nicola, Happy House mummy
My little boy and I really enjoy Hartbeeps, Happy House. It's always so upbeat and happy, we use great props and there's always something different and new in the class.
