Hi everyone, I am Lou and I own the Southampton Franchise and run sessions across Southampton and Hedge End with my lovely contractors Heather and Catherine.

Hartbeeps is a multi-sensory musical experience, providing sessions that spark the imagination of all age groups. Mum's, Dad's, Uncle's, Aunt's, Grandparents, Au-Pairs, Nanny's, Carers...everyone who comes to Hartbeeps can enjoy our unique and wonderful sessions that aid in imaginative play, social interaction, communication & language skills, develop empathy and understanding, build brain connections and work on fine/gross motor skills. All the key components to ensure our little ones are confident, self assured, comfortable in themselves, expressive and learn how to have fun with their grown up.

My journey with Hartbeeps started with my youngest when he was around 6 months. I went to sessions in Highfield with my NCT group and loved the original songs, puppets, variety of sessions and Dani who used to run the classes back in 2012!

Fast forward and I now own and run Hartbeeps in Southampton and Hedge End. I love what I do, seeing the wonder and excitement of our Happy Housers embarking on a magical journey into the world of imagination, our Baby Beeps exploring, fascinated with age appropriate props, sound play and their grown ups having a fantastic time singing along to our songs; our Baby Bells parents playing and bonding with their little ones in a safe, secure and welcoming environment.

I plan to launch sessions in Eastleigh, Locksheath and Fair Oak so do keep an eye on our facebook page and website for new classes.

Hi, I'm Heather and I lead Hartbeeps sessions in Freemantle.
My journey with Hartbeeps began when my daughter was 3 months old and we went to our first Baby Bells class. At the time, we were trying out a variety of different baby classes, but there was something so special and magical about Hartbeeps that really captivated us and has kept us coming back every term. I love the incredible sensory experience, the introduction of imaginative play at a young age, the careful planning of sessions to encourage babies' development and how the songs are fun for adults too!
In my pre-parenthood life, I was a primary school teacher, but wanted more flexible working arrangements during my daughter's pre-school years. Music and theatre performance have been hobbies of mine since childhood, and I have always wanted a job where singing was in the job description, so between that and my passion for working with children, I couldn't wait to become a Hartbeeps Imaginator! I am so pleased to have the chance to bring the magic of Hartbeeps, and the beautiful bonding experience that it brings, to other families.
I look forward to welcoming you and your little one to a Hartbeeps class soon!
