Hi, I'm Dawn and I'm a Hartbeeps Imaginator in Hebburn and Jarrow.
I have a background in childcare and since leaving school have gained qualifications in various childcare courses as well as having a degree in childcare studies. I have been a trained Nursery Nurse for 14 years and as well as my amazing and magical role as a Hartbeeps Imaginator I also work part time as an Outreach Worker working with families in the community.
I have a daughter who is nearly 3 years old. Since she was 6 weeks I took her to our local Hartbeeps group and we loved it from start to finish. This is when I got interested in doing the classes myself from watching how much enjoyment my daughter got out of the classes.
I feel everything should have the experience of joining their little ones down the rabbit hole into a world of imagination. What more could you ask for?
Baby Bells (from birth to sitting)
A lovely bonding experience with your little one. During each class their are elements of baby yoga, baby massage and calming techniques to guide babies through our magical, imaginary Baby Land with sountacks of remixed nursery rhymes and lullabies.
Lot's of friendly puppets to meet, age-appropriate props and discover sparkly parachutes. All designed to delight those freshly acquires senses and help babies to uncurl and release trapped energy.
Baby Beeps (from sitting to toddling)
Bouncy, interactive classes that focus on early language acquisition. Every class is a fun filled adventure through Baby Land. Lot's of wacky characters to meet, lighting effects, cool props and parachutes that you wont see anywhere else.
From the everyday to the truly spectacular, everything we do in Baby Beeps is a magical adventure.
Happy House (from toddling to five years)
Fun filled, highly interactive classes for busy toddlers, pre-schoolers and their little siblings. The children are put at the heart of our story as we explore the Happy House and beyond. Lot's of music, drama, creative play,dance and movement all set to a fantastic soundtrack of remixed nursery rhymes.
Happy House is all about confidence as well as physical and emotional development. Classes help to prepare young minds for a lifetime of learning through play.
