Hi my names Naomi and I'm 35! Ssssh! x

 

I first come across Hartbeeps about six years ago when some of my little charges booked on to attend happy house in Wimbledon. I couldn't believe my eyes at all the things that kept on coming out the bags! It really did start a weekly highlight for me and the children, an a pace of me recommending it forward when I moved on to other families. We simply had a blast every week with the teacher there, an although it did cross my mind at the time about working with them, my sensible head was on as I was comfortable in my life routine at that time ….an unsure if I was sparkly enough!

As fete had it , my little sister ( a performer starting to tread the boards ) was looking for work in-between auditions and managed to start working with Hartbeeps south west London after seeing an ad in the stage. Now, fast forward six years an Im proud to say she is now the owner of this lovely branch and unfortunately for me, my boss haha! She had regularly tried to rope me in and at times succeeded at many events, to the point I thought I really should start getting paid for this..

2020

Lockdown hit and as Katie was worrying about holding on to her business due to staff having to find other work and her then potentially returning too soon from maternity or disappoint customers. I just knew then that it was in my stars to try and pursue a Hartbeeps career as I'd always longed to. After much training and revision myself and Victoria decided to team up to put on some Christmas sessions in cobham . We were thrilled they where a success and it gave me a real confidence kick and exciting buzz like no other job I've ever had before. But sadly ….lock down hit again!

As frustrating as this was it gave me plenty of time to reflect on what I wanted to do in life and how to spend my time. I decided to take part time hours in Sainsbury's as I couldn't sit at home on my hands and trained trained trained through the Hartbeeps material focusing on a relaunch date with Katie in April. Since then I have not looked back …Hartbeeps makes me really happy, with so much variety , its hard to keep up with the evolving scripts some weeks so impossible to get bored.

Although I sometimes wish I started in Hartbeeps earlier in life…(as these knees are not what they used to be.) I never see my years of nannying and working in a nurseries as wasted years but instead they actually form such a solid foundation for my working with children now. It's been an absolute pleasure to laugh, sing , dance and see you guys weekly as your little ones grow in front our very eyes.

I'm really looking forward to what the next few years have in store for me with HartbeepsSSCM as I step into full time work running sessions in Wallington, Kingswood, Cheam and Cobham.

P.S I'm also available for casual babysitting gigs /evenings/weekends! (Enhanced DBS an Level3 childcare/ and first aid.

Hey! My name is Victoria and Im 33!

I discovered Hartbeeps in 2017 when I first took my nephew to one of Katies sessions! I so surprised at all the quirky dress up and catchy songs and Where did all these props keep coming from? I loved how much my nephew was so engaged with Katie throughout the whole session and when it had finished didn't want to leave!

Being Musical theatre trained (Brit school) and part of a musical theatre academy since the age of 3, Ive performed in some Westend shows and Pantos growing up, experiencing Hartbeeps really took me back to how exciting the world of imagination can be! I was keen to know more but my confidence had slipped and I was focusing on my Back of house job at Wimbledon theatre operating the spot lights!

Fast forward 2020

So due to Covid, my job at Wimbledon theatre meant I had been put on furlough and left me wondering what my next steps should be. Now my good friend Katie, whom I met through Brit school approached me and asked if I would team up with Naomi to support the Christmas sessions, I thought this would be a great opportunity to experience the other side and I absolutely fell in love and realised it allows me to use my musical theatre skills and training as well as finding my confidence again in something that I absolutely love! PERFORMING!

Fast forward a year   and here we are! Ready for the next chapter! 

Both kids love heartbeeps and Katie is amazing with the children of all ages Jodie on Facebook said:

Brilliant class with so much for my little man to enjoy. And he naps so we'll afterwards, winning! Denise, Facebook
We know Katie and Hartbeeps from the classes we’ve attended in Balham and couldn’t recommend them highly enough. The babies always have such a great time and Katie is the perfect class leader - very fun, enthusiastic and always lots of energy! Holly on Facebook said:
Hartbeeps with Katie is the highlight of our week. It’s brilliant for mum and baby and I have loved seeing my baby develop and become more aware of her surroundings. The resources are fantastic and the dress up part of the session is a cuteness overload! Absolutely fantastic. April , Myah's mum published on bookeo.
Yesterday, M and I attended the final summer @hartbeepsscls session. It was an emotional one for me, as it was the last one M will be regularly attending, due to preschool commitments from September! I've been taking M since she was 8 months old (as covid got in the way before that!) and H since he was 4 months. We love it so much that up until recently I've spent my Friday mornings ferrying M to her class, handing her over to my husband (WFH ?) for lunch and a nap, whilst I take H to his class! Hartbeeps is a fantastic multi-sensory and music class rolled into one. Each week has a different theme and the sessions are carefully planned out to meet the levels and stages of the little ones in the class. The props brought to class each week are seriously impressive and change every week so it never gets boring! I've been to a lot of music/sensory type classes in our area and Hartbeeps is hands down the best! We love it! Swipe to see various pics of M and H at their Hartbeeps sessions from the past 18 months. The photos aren't amazing (it's so tricky to find ones without others in the background!), but they give an idea of the great variety of props etc included. I would definitely recommend giving it a go if there is a class running in your local area - they run free trial classes too! We really enjoy our weekly Hartbeeps classes and I can't wait to continue taking H to his classes from September (and M for holiday classes/specials too!) @Daysoutwithmummy published on instagram
Bobby always has so much fun at these classes, I look forward to taking him every week he loves playing with new toys and engaging in new experiences in the environment. Katie is a great educator and is always smiling and making sure all children and parents are having fun. Miranda Wallace on Bookeo

My baby and I love our hartbeeps classes. Katie is so lovely, my baby responded to her from the first class and always watched her intently smiles. We love visiting the toadstools every week for that little bit of hartbeeps magic ? ? ? Jenna P
