My name is Emma and I first fell in love with Hartbeeps after taking my daughter to a Baby Bells session. From then, there was no looking back!
When I discovered that I could run my own Hartbeeps sessions in West Berkshire, it was the perfect fit!
Entertainment and teaching are key elements of my background, most recently on cruise ships as a Cruise Director, so the two combined felt perfect to become a Hartbeeps Imaginator!
The Newbury and Thatcham sessions have been running since 2014, with a range of public classes running in various local venues over the week. I also visit a number of local preschools, nurseries and children's charities as well as hosting birthday parties! I have experience running sessions with children with additional needs as well as being a qualified baby massage and baby yoga instructor.
It's such a pleasure and privilege to see babies and children grow and develop as they go on their weekly Hartbeeps adventure. I would love to welcome you to the magical world of Hartbeeps and look forward to meeting you soon!

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
We love Hartbeeps. I can take both my toddler and infant and they both enjoy it so much. Lots of singing, dancing, playing, sensory and good fun.Joanne, 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)

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)
