Hartbeeps Newbury and Thatcham

Hi! My name is Jo, and I live near Thatcham with my husband, our two children and our dog. I fell in love with Hartbeeps after taking my daughter to a Happy House session when she was a toddler. We were both enchanted from the moment we walked in the door, and I wish I had found it earlier, as I would have loved to have taken her from when she was a baby.

At that time I was a stay at home mummy, which I loved, but I was looking for something else to be involved in as well. When I discovered that I could run my own Hartbeeps classes in West Berkshire, it seemed like the perfect job to fit around my family. A few years on, I can say that it most definitely is!

Since I launched in 2014, I have built my public classes up and they now run in three local venues over three mornings. I also visit a number of local preschools, nurseries and children’s charities, on a weekly, monthly or occasional basis. I have experience running my sessions with children with additional needs, having been doing this almost since the beginning of my Hartbeeps journey, and have completed level 1 in Makaton which I use in my sessions.

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!
