I am Jodi and together with Carolyn we own and run Hartbeeps for this area.
I am a mummy to two girls, Islay and Poppy and they are the reason I began on my Hartbeeps journey. They love Hartbeeps and still enjoy helping behind the scenes and feeling a part of the team. I feel so lucky to be meeting wonderful parents and children, creating happy memories and scattering magic sprinkles! It really is the best job in the world.
My background is in dance, I studied this at university and went on to work with people who had physical disabilities. Once I had my first daughter I became a childminder, a job I loved and did for four years. Then I discovered Hartbeeps and I can honestly say it was the most captivating, whimsical class that I have ever experienced with my children.
Hartbeeps has so many benefits for babies and children and is delivered with passion and care. I hope you will love it as much as I do. I very much look forward to meeting you all soon!

I am Carolyn and I am extremely excited to co-own and run Hartbeeps with Jodi in this area.
My days with Hartbeeps started when I attended a class with my daughter Erin. She was only a few weeks old and we swiftly signed up for all the terms we could squeeze in during my maternity leave! We just loved it. The sessions were magical, engaging and so much fun. I found new ways to play at home and I met other parents who are now absolutely friends for life.
In my pre Hartbeeps life I worked in the Motor trade; would you believe it. Since joining the Hartbeeps team I have never looked back. Somethings are just meant to be.
It is an honour to be a part of Hartbeeps. I get to meet so many incredible babies and their families and provide a place where they can just be together, enjoy a magical journey of development and fun and together make glorious memories.
I cannot wait to meet you all and bring our magic sprinkles into your lives.
With love and magic sprinkles, Carolyn xxxxxx
Andrea became an Imaginator almost by accident about 6 years ago. After bringing her baby daughter to a few Hartbeeps classes in watford she asked about being an imaginator for a couple hours a week... 6 years later it's a full time passion! Having come from a background of Improv Comedy, singing telegrams, interactive historical theatre, childrens summer camps, and about a gazillion jobs in the service industry she has finally found Hartbeeps; a vocation that was truly made for her.
Hi I'm Jessie, Mummy of Isaac 7 and Austin 4 and your crazy Imaginator for Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield. Get ready to come on a musical adventure with me and your little one. Meet others and make memories you and your little one will have for a lifetime.
I've always loved singing, dancing and performing, as a child and young adult but then I moved to London to follow a different career path. After many years in the corporate world, I had my first son Isaac and by chance found Hartbeeps. We discovered Hartbeeps when visiting my parents up north and instantly feel in love. But alas there was no Hartbeeps in Welwyn Garden City. For some reason I didn't look much further afield, as a new mum I wasn't sure I wanted to drive to St Albans for a class. Silly I know as I wouldn't think twice about it now, but I was quite nervous with things like that. I went back to work and juggled being a new mum and holding down a 9-5 job.
I then had my second son Austin and felt that we both needed Hartbeeps in our life so after contacting the franchise owner and going through the training, Hartbeeps Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield was born. I was able to take Austin to classes every week and he loved it. I could see how the sessions helped him, from the repetition of the beginnings and endings meaning he felt safe and calm to him being able to count to 10 by the time he was 2.
I have been running sessions in WGC since February 2018 and I love it, I wouldn't change it for the world, it really is my dream job.
Covid meant we have had to take a break, but we are back stronger than ever, and we have a bigger and better team than ever before.
I get to be creative every day, see grownups bond with their little ones, create memories and just be silly, as well as being at home when my boys are back from school.
In this crazy stressful world where at times it can feel like it's getting on top of us, come and take time out with me and your little one. Let's shake off all our adult norms and just simply be and play with our little ones whilst working on their development without them or you even realising it.
I can't wait to meet you and your little one and go on some wonderful adventures together.
Hi my name is Zulehka I run the Harpenden sessions. I am a mum of 2 very energetic boys, and I have a background in education and performing. I have been a primary school teacher for over 10 years and have also acted in a variety of T.I.E productions for schools.
I started my Hartbeeps journey when I moved to Hertfordshire and started taking classes with my youngest. I quickly fell in love with the classes and new I wanted to get involved. Luckily, I was given the opportunity to join the team in 2019 and began my training. During my training my eldest was able to join me and he soon became a fellow hartbeeper. He even helped me to create content for Hartbeeps@home. I started running classes near the end of 2020 and as they say the rest is history! I love sharing this time with you and your little ones. I loved Hartbeeps as a fellow mum and love it even more as an imaginator.
