Hello, my name is Katie and I run Hartbeeps 'Wallington, Chessington & Molesey.' Wallington classes have recently launched in January2018 and I am loving sharing Hartbeeps with the local community and am so grateful for its warm welcome to the area.
My journey started with Hartbeeps in 2015 when I laid eyes on an exciting looking job advertisement via the Stage website as I eagerly hunted for performance opportunities. As a performing arts graduate from Roehampton University and a Musical theatre graduate from The Brit School I was looking for a job that would allow me to exercise my performance skills and keep me in tune with a live audience for auditions. With previous experience in nannying roles, running holiday clubs for children and as a teaching assistant I already knew that I had a real love for little ones and helping them develop through play and performing arts; their minds are just so fascinating! Never did I imagine back then that I would end up becoming a franchisee myself!
Before launching my own Hartbeeps venture, I started leading sessions and birthday parties for the South West London branch and was blown away with the structure and variety of sessions that Hartbeeps have to offer. The babies, the parents and myself were all having a great time in the sessions creating a real uplifting atmosphere between us!Furthermore, If I wasn't already completely sold the cherry on the cake arrived in February 2017 when I became a mummy! From then, I saw first-hand as a parent/participant how lovely the sessions were. To bond with my son and do something that was really enjoyed by us both was something we looked forward to eagerly every week. It was OUR time out of reality to have fun hanging out in baby land. Fletcher has now just turned 2 years old and still a regular Hartbeeper!
Looking forward to meeting you...
Best wishes & Magic sprinkles
