What our nurseries say...

"The children and staff have thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. We have seen drastic improvements in children's ability to join in with the singing and actions. The children have talked about what they have been doing and have enjoyed listening to the CD in class. The Hartbeeps team have an excellent knowledge of EYFS and young children. Each session is exciting and resourced well".
Louise Hobbs
Bentley New Village Primary School

"Hartbeeps is beneficial to our children with special needs because they focus on sensory development and they seem to really engage with the session. The children all seem to love Hartbeeps and it helps to develop their listening and attention skills and also their physical development. Overall the children seem to love it".

Jade Read

Bright Start Day Care

"Hartbeeps is fun, colourful and the children can take part from beginning to end. Has the wow, joy and wonder that children respond to. Well planned and thought out. Music is familiar and easy to learn. Lots of things for the children to look at, feel, hear - all sensory experiences. Very good for special needs. Have observed really interesting responses from children who can be shy and quiet. Fits in with planning and links to EYFS. Children always come out smiling and we good good feedback from families."

Elaine Redmond

South Harrow Methodist Pre-school

“The children really enjoy the Hartbeeps sessions, and some children who do not normally get involved in music and movement, have started to take part. The children have also been using some of the songs they have learnt from Hartbeeps and singing them at other times. The sessions hold the children's attention well and encourage them to learn new songs."

My son and I have been attending Hartbeeps since the start of 2017. Wow what a fun year we have had on our magical adventure in Hartbeeps land.

A HUGE thankyou to the amazing Jemma for entertaining our little guests at my daughters 1st birthday party. The format was spot on, extremely professionally led and Jemma demanded even the attention of those kids we thought to be ‘too grown up’ for a Hartbeeps session. Everyone involved had a great time and I am only sad I have to return to work and not - Rebecca Sims
We adore our Hartbeeps sessions with Jemma! My daughter, Florence, had really come out of her shell and I really think this is down to Jemma’s amazing energy and welcoming way. To see Flossie crawl over to her a couple of weeks ago made me well up. I also love the group too, it has just the right balance of structured activity and play for the babies. - Katie Forwood
Would like to say a massive thank you to Jemma at Hartbeeps in South Woodham Ferrers.
