Why Choose Hartbeeps?

There are so many different classes in London to choose from from these days, but we think (and our members agree!) that Hartbeeps is quite simply the best!

It is no ordinary musical class...

Our sessions strengthen the bond between you and your child, support wellbeing and bring a sense of community within the groups.

Hartbeeps offers support through the activities we provide, through the nature of our sessions, helps families that have felt isolated with their children and gives them the opportunity to be guided through our session, play together, bond and find a new connection with their babies/toddlers. All in a safe and open environment.

Hartbeeps babies / toddlers learn and develop throughout the classes through curiosity, play, and the early years of development and early stages and milestones are supported.

Every week our age-appropriate activities and props help develop their core skills, allowing each individual child to attain their key developmental milestones.

At Hartbeeps we help your little people develop their natural intelligence, bring out their innate curiosity and increase their confidence.

We grow happy, clever little people and get them ready for a lifetime of learning through fun, music, make-believe and play.

Grow your bond and watch your child thrive with us!

Hartbeeps is not your average sit and sing! You'll be amazed, there's never a dull moment for you or your little one. Join in, make friends, have a blast!

You will now have you very own Hartbeeps Islands where all your magic will happen together, it is so interactive as your children play and learn with you as we lead you on your weekly sound journey xx

Where do you run classes?

We currently run classes in Herne Hill, East Dulwich, Crystal Palace, Upper Norwood, West Norwood & Penge

Do you have availability in...?

You can check current availability at If the class you want is fully booked please join the waitlist if the option is there, so we can notify you if a space opens up.

The class I want to book is showing as waitlist/full. Can you squeeze us in?
Although legal limits on the number of people who can attend a class have been lifted we're still operating on reduced numbers to ensure the safety of our bookers and session leaders so in most of our venues have had to set a maximum capacity that's much lower than we had pre-Covid. We'd love to be able to accommodate you all, but at the moment we have to operate within safe limits and have no flexibility in that respect.

Which class should I book?
We run three different classes, each tailored for a different stage of your child's development. It's important that you book the right class for your child's developmental stage, otherwise they won't get the most out of the class.

Baby Bells - for babies newborn to sitting
Baby Beeps - for babies sitting to toddling
Happy House - for confident walkers & preschoolers

How can I book a class?
All of our classes can be booked at - select your preferred venue to see booking options.

We are currently taking full term bookings in advance, with drop-ins/trials opening for booking 6 days before class, subject to availability.

Why haven't I received a booking confirmation email?

Please check your junk/spam folders - our booking system automatically sends a confirmation email for each booking. If you have the email, please make sure to mark the sender as "safe" to be sure of receiving any further emails we may need to send you about your booking.

If you definitely don't have a confirmation email please email us asap with details of your booking (venue/day/time, name of child and adult) and we'll investigate.

I've booked the wrong class/venue by mistake - what should I do?
Please drop us an email to explain what's happened and which class you wanted. If there's still availability we'll transfer your booking over for you. Please do not cancel your incorrect booking until you've heard back from us, as it's much easier to transfer a booking than it is to rebook you from scratch.

When will booking open for next term?

Dates aren't finalised just yet for classes beyond October 2021, but you can join our mailing list at to receive our email newsletter when booking opens.

Can I bring a friend/partner/baby's grandparent to class with me?

If you have a friend who'd like to attend class with their baby they need to book themselves a space.

Due to current Covid-19 restrictions we are limited to only one adult per child in class please, so for the time being we can't allow additional guests to come along with you - but if another adult from your household wants to come in your place now and then that's fine!

The things our amazing parents have said about us
Having attended Lotte’s Hartbeeps sessions for a while with my little boy, I couldn’t wait to book her for his birthday. Lotte is fantastic. The pace of activities is great, never a dull moment. There is a varied mix of sensory, song and story telling all with incredible props. We absolutely love Hartbeeps and would highly recommend the weekly sessions and booking them for a party. - Anna
Thank you guys for such an amazing job today at my son's 1st birthday party. We absolutely loved having you there and all the kids had fun! - Amarjeeet on Facebook
Best classes ever. I have tried and tested almost every class in our area and I have to say there are no competition. My LO enjoys it allot, very interactive, musical and entertaining for both of us. I now have to chose a second class for her and I'm lost with what to choose.. - Yelena - Dulwich
We started going to baby bells when my eldest was tiny, four years later we're now going to happy house with babies number two and three and still love it! Lotte and her team are endlessly enthusiastic and I've loved watching how my children have engaged with the different sessions over the years as much as they've enjoyed joining in with the Hartbeeps craziness! - Sarah & Milo Crystal Palace
My daughter and I both love Hartbeeps -- I love seeing her excitement and delight at the new adventures we go on every week and it's the one class we've stuck with from newborn through to toddlerhood. What's brilliant about the classes is that though each week has something new, it's got a predictable structure that means it's reassuring and familiar for little ones. The songs seem a bit crazy at first but quickly become addictive. Our session leader, Lotte, is a large part of why we've kept coming back -- she's such a natural and made us feel at home immediately, even though we were both a little shy at first! - Lauren & Margaux - Herne Hill
Daisy (22 months) LOVES Happy House, she sings the songs on the way to our session each week and I often catch her doing ‘listening ears’ with sticks at home! The sessions are fun and lively with plenty of music, bubbles and just the right amount of repetitive things (Adrian the mouse always a hit!) and also new adventures each week filled with dressing up, singing and activity. It keeps me amused as much as Daisy! - Clare & Daisy - Nunhead
After a tough delivery of my second child and a 15 month old to look after as well as a newborn, I really struggled. Thankfully we found Happy House and it certainly became our happy place. It was so wonderful to find such an engaging group with sensory stimulation that works for toddlers as well as babies. You get the opportunity to spend time with your children in a friendly and relaxed environment without having to run around after your toddler with baby in tow. Lotte always made sure my baby and toddler both had toys and props and were engaged in the class. We’ve been to quite a few classes where it feels like more work looking after your children than at home. If my older child loses interest, he starts trying to leave midway through classes. Thankfully, this has never happened at Happy House. The children so look forward to going on a Monday morning. Their faces both light up when the class begins. The songs from the class have integrated in our lives to the point that my toddler likes to have the Happy House quiet time simulated as part of his bedtime routine. Thanks so much to Lotte for running such an excellent and inclusive class - you are a lifesaver! - Jessica - Herne Hill
I have been going to Lotte’s classes for the last 5 months. I can not praise her and hartbeeps enough. My little son loves the classes and so do I. He gets really stimulated and has lots of fun. Every week we live such a great adventure in the wonderful baby land! - Lucia
Thank you guys for such an amazing job today at my son's 1st birthday party. We absolutely loved having you there and all the kids had fun! - Amarjeet
Both my children went to Hartbeeps with Lotte and we looked forward to it every week especially the dressing up and wig wearing! I made some really great friends at the groups too so it's brilliant for meeting like minded mums. And who doesn't love singing along to Superstars in a banana hat?! - Lucy & Lara - Crystal Palace
A quick note to say how sad we were when you finished up in Forest Hill and we are so happy you are returning to our neighborhood. My daughter loves your classes - we have tried a few and they are one the best around (and we've tried a few!). A great mix of activity and learning, delivered in such a fun and energetic way. Thanks for making us feel so welcome too. - Brid - Forest Hill
"Amazing classes! My little boy is an absolute fan of the Baby Beeps classes. More and more smiles every week!"
"Started taking my baby along to our local session and she absolutely loves it."
"What a magical experience for both baby and me. My group absolutely lovely and is so in tune with the Mums and their babies. You can tell she really loves her job too!"
