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

I am a Mummy to two beautiful girls Pia and Orla. Pia is 4 and is our sassy, confident go getter and Orla is 2 and certainly beginning to find her feet and loves to babble and sing 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!

Hello! My name is Sarah, I'm excited to be joining the Colchester Hartbeeps team, I cannot wait to get to know you all, in the meantime here's a little bit about me...

I have been involved in community choirs and amateur dramatics for most of my adult life, it has given me lots of wonderful experiences performing around the UK and abroad at various events, my absolute 'icing on the cake dream come true' gig was to perform at Disney! (I really didn't want to come home!)

It's safe to say music and theatre are my 2 favourite things, I love seeing the enjoyment and feel good factor it brings to children and adults alike, in fact I'm fairly sure it's why I love Hartbeeps so much as it's a world of musical imagination!

So, back in the real world away from the dizzy heights of pink castles, music and sparkles, I am mum to twin boys George and Stanley who have recently started their primary school adventures. We attended Hartbeeps when they were younger and we absolutely loved it, (sometimes I think I loved it EVEN more than the boys it helped us so much to have something to look forward to and it quickly became part of our weekly routine.


I feel extremely honoured to join Hartbeeps as an Imaginator and to be able to embark on the journey with all of you. I look forward to meeting you all at sessions in and around Colchester over the coming weeks, we are going to have so much fun

Hi Everyone,


I’m Kalie and I am mummy to my gorgeous son Teddie who is 2 and a half. It was through attending classes with Teddie from 4 months old during covid where my love for Hartbeeps began. 


For me, Hartbeeps was so important to us it was our first baby class (due to lockdowns etc) and my first chance to get out with Ted! Not only did I meet some fantastic mum friends (which we still see today) we had so much fun in sessions where we sang, danced, dressed up and had lots of giggles!

The perfect bonding space and we still attend Happy House classes and now Ted is confident to join in independently and knows the songs, actions and routines of classes! The highlight of our week


After over 10 years teaching primary school aged children I was eager to find a job that I loved as much and here I am! 


I can’t wait to meet everyone and have fun making memories with your children 

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
