Welcome to the wonderful world of Hartbeeps! Here you'll find details of our sessions in Newbury and Thatcham.
But what is Hartbeeps? We get asked this a lot, and it can be a little difficult describing our sessions in one sentence, as we have so much going on!
Yes, our sessions are fantastically fun! We sing songs, have a bit of a boogie, meet friendly puppet characters, play with sparkly parachutes, and yes, the rumours are true - we do dress up in silly outfits! But the best thing about our sessions is that no matter what you have going on at home/work or in your personal life, you get to spend precious time playing with your child. I think we can all agree that life sometimes gets in the way of this.
We have sessions from birth right up to school age; younger siblings are very welcome to come along with their older brothers and sisters. We also love to have older siblings come along to any sessions in the school holidays!
As all children develop at their own pace, our sessions are specified for developmental stage rather than a specific age. And amongst all the fun, each and every activity in our sessions has a purpose.
Come journey down the rabbit hole with us as we go on a musical, magical adventure designed to help our children learn and grow.

My little boy has been attending Baby Bells since he was 6weeks old. He has made some lovely little friends, enjoys the songs, tummy time and the weekly themes are brilliant with fantastic props! Jo is really engaging and runs a lovely session!Niamh, from Facebook
My daughter and I (along with her friends) LOVE Hartbeeps Baby Bells each week with Jo. It is the highlight of our week. We enjoy the headwear and quality of all the props used. Would highly recommend to anyone. Thank you Jo!Gemma, from Facebook
The sessions are absolutely fantastic; my twins absolutely love Jo and the Baby Bells group. Session themes are so imaginative and every week I wonder how will you top that and you always do :) xTaryn, from Facebook

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the Easter session today. My 3 absolutely loved it!!! It’s the best class we’ve been to in a long time and all 3 of my children got a lot of out it so thanks again. It’s really hard trying to find a class that will cater for a 3 year old, 1 year old and 3 month old!Sarah, via email (April 2018)

Absolutely brilliant *****Karen, from Facebook
Hartbeeps is a wonderful music class, which has a perfect mix of memorable songs, pretend play and calm time. My two year old learned something from every class, and loves repeating the dance moves at home. Jo has such a lovely way with the kids, giving them all equal attention and making them feel special. I would highly recommend her classes to everyone.Vicky, by email (October 2018)
