Welcome to Hartbeeps Gateshead, South Shields, Sunderland and Co Durham

We are proud to spread the magic of Hartbeeps in and around Gateshead, South Shields and some of the areas in Co Durham.

At Hartbeeps we put your child at the heart of our magical, musical adventures. We offer original and super fun, developmental baby classes, toddler classes and pre-school classes, as well as educational sessions, pregnancy classes, stay & play with baby discos, and fabulous children's parties.

All of our classes are set to a soundtrack of original songs, remixed nursery rhymes and lullabies. We take you and your little one on a sound journey and bring the story to life. Come and experience the amazing world of Hartbeeps with classes to complement and enhance every stage of your child's early years - from pre-birth to school.

We can't wait to welcome you to our award-winning classes.

We are a baby and toddler class like no other - it is the only class in town where adults become children while their babies grow, develop and learn.

How magical are our classes? Let our grown ups tell you...
What an amazing class! We look forward to coming every single week. Visually it's so magical for the little ones (and adults too!). There are lots to keep them occupied and interested - helping them to develop in every way and a lovely little social time for grown ups. We're so happy we found you X X X - Dionne, Chester-le-street mummy
Very sad to be having my final session with my daughter tomorrow. Hartbeeps has been our favourite class by far! The sessions are always engaging and interesting and they seem to have a never ending supply of fancy dress as my daughter has been dressed up as something different every week and she’s been attending for 6 months! The sessions have a lovely relaxed atmosphere and give you a good opportunity to get to know other mums in an informal environment. I would recommend this class to any mums who want to try something that’s a little different and lots of fun! - Alicia, Gateshead mummy
Me any my little one have been attending classes since he was 6 weeks old, we both really enjoy the classes and I feel it’s really beneficial for him. His confidence has grown vastly. He loves the music and we both look forward to classes every week. We have just finished our winter term and we both are looking forward to starting again in the NY. The instructors are great with the little ones too. Couldn’t recommend Hartbeeps enough! We love the different themes each week in class. It never gets boring! - Faye, South Shields mummy
We just finished our third and final term in the newborn to sitting group and I'm really sad. My little 3 month old who didn't even like tummy time at our first class, spent his last one sitting by himself and almost crawling. Classes have really helped him love tummy time and we sing the songs to him all the time to calm him down. We have both loved our adventures into babyland, rowing our boats to treasure island and partying in a new destination every week. The thing I will miss the most is how mesmerised my baby boy was with Frances. I could never get him to look at me! I also liked being able to take my husband and my dad along to the odd class. - Hannah, Low Fell mummy
Going to babyland is the highlight of my week and hoping my son's too! The class is well structured, a different central song every week (which is a surprise!) and above all fun, fun, fun! The Hartbeeps lady is excellent. She makes you feel welcome from the very first class and all the babies find her mesmerising! She captures their attention and her enthusiasm is infectious. We're going into our 3rd term and will continue to attend as long as possible. I find myself singing the songs at home which brings great delight and lots of giggles. The class incorporates some sign language, baby massage, tummy time and social time to enable my son's continuous development. If there's one must do activity with your little one this is it! - Nichola, Gateshead mummy
