Hi I'm Lauren your franchise owner and Hartbeeps Imaginator.  

I am a Mummy to two beautiful girls Pia and Orla. Pia is 3 and is our sassy, confident go getter and Orla is 1 and certainly beginning to find her feet and loves to babble away to anyone (don’t know where she gets her chattyness from). 

For the past 10 years, I have been lucky enough to work with so many children as a Primary School Teacher and School Leader as I love to teach! 

I started Hartbeeps with my first and have been attending for many years so when this opportunity came up to be a part of this amazing Franchise, I had to leap for it- teaching is my passion and my girls have showed me the awe and love of learning when working with younger children so this venture was just perfect for me! 

I cant wait to meet you all and get started in sharing your journeys.

Hi, my name is Lauren and I have worked with Hartbeeps for 3 magical years. 

I am a mum to a crazy 4 (nearly 5) year old girl called Ruby. I started taking Ruby to classes when she was 6 months old. I loved it soo much that I had to jump at the chance of working as an Imaginator when the opportunity came up. I feel this job was made for me. I've enjoyed watching little ones grow from Baby Bells all the way up to Happy House and making new friends along the way.  It's such a rewarding job! 

I'm looking forward to seeing old and new faces join me for a journey down the rabbit hole, for a fun, crazy and imaginative class that changes each week.

Hello, My name is Vanessa and I have recently come out of teaching (which I did for 10 years!).  

I have been lucky enough to attend Hartbeeps as a mummy back in 2017 with my son- now 6- and I attended the Happy House classes with both of my children as I also have a daughter who is 4 years old and about to begin school. I always loved how expressive and imaginative the classes with Hartbeeps are; the singing, dancing and of course, the dress up props! 

When I was teaching, I was totally blown away by the imagination, creativity and individuality of the little minds of the children in my Early Years classroom; I felt so lucky to be a part of guiding and teaching them as they progressed into the next stage of their school life. So I am incredibly excited to get to know parents and their little ones through being an Imaginator at Hartbeeps, so we can enjoy this wonderful, fun learning experience together!

Me and my baby boy had a wonderful time at baby bells. All the songs and activities were great fun to take part in. We look forward to coming along again. Bookeo Mar 18
We love going to baby bells with Louise, she's brilliant at what she does, engaging, encouraging, always has a smile on her face and makes us feel happy and comfortable. Baby bells is always a calm and happy place to be, I always leave feeling happy even if I haven't slept at all or had a bad morning! So thank you very much Louise! Bookeo Feb 18
The session I attended yesterday was fab! Great activities, the timings of each were perfect and the music great. Couldn't recommend highly enough Bookeo Sep 17
Louise and her classes are absolutely fab. My daughter has loved them from about 4 months old. Plus mummy loves taking photos of her in each week’s themed fancy dress outfit ??? I definitely recommend her classes ? Facebook Oct 17
