Hi, I'm Jaime, a mummy to my Oliver. 

I heard about Hartbeeps when Oliver was a tiny baby and thought would give it go.  Well, I had never seen anything like it before, I was amazed and enthralled by everything – the music, the lights and the magic.


After attending a couple of sessions I absolutely knew I had to become a part of this magical world. I soon did my research and before I knew it I was on the Hartbeeps Train! 


I was so excited to get going and then at last Hartbeeps West Kent was introduced and I LOVE IT and have never looked back! 


I look forward to welcoming you into our wonderful world and for you to join me down the rabbit hole into the Magical World of Hartbeeps.

Magic Sprinkles!

Hi I am Tara, I have over 10 years worth of experience in childcare from birth to teens, mainly working in nurseries and schools.

I first entered the magical world of Hartbeeps when I saw an advert and wanted to do something for my then 3 month old son (he is now 5, and still loves it), since then I have joined the Hartbeeps West Kent team and I am thoroughly enjoying being a part of the magic.

I love how even an adult can lose themselves in the class by enjoying it just as much as the children!

Every week is different, keeping me on my toe's and allowing me to see the excitement and wonderment on the children's faces when we explore something new. It really is priceless!

we look forward to welcoming you along to our session soon!

Hi, I'm Briony, a happy mummy to my gorgeous son Matthew and a very proud Hartbeeps Imaginator! 

 

It's a real privilege to be part of the Heartbeeps West Kent family and to be able to help guide such lovely children on their journeys through the magical Heartbeeps world.

 

Watching them develop and flourish as they progress through the different stages is very rewarding, and their smiley, happy faces are a testament to the fun and different adventures on offer at every session. It's also great to see (and help nurture) the strong friendships which develop between our Heartbeeps parents, carers and grandparents.

 

I have a strong background and vast experience in dancing, singing and performing, and I bring enthusiasm and fun to all my Heartbeeps sessions. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Hi.  My name's Taylor-Ann but my friends call me Taylor or Tay!  

 

So, a bit about me...........I started dancing at the age of 3 and as a teenager

trained in dance, drama and singing at Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts.

After leaving college I performed in productions, films and adverts and had

my own touring cabaret act where I combined my love of singing and dancing.

 

After having my daughter, Erica, I wanted to share my love of the arts with

others so went on to lead children's music and movement classes and started

my own Ballroom & Latin American dance classes.  I then went on to teach

Modern, Tap and Ballet in dance schools where I've entered pupils into ISTD

exams.  I love to keep my body and brain active, so I recently qualified as an Exercise To Music Level 2 Instructor and Yoga Instructor.  

 

I'm very excited to be part of the Hartbeeps team and I look forward to seeing you all at my sessions very soon. x

Hi I’m Fiona,
Mother to my one year old little boy Charlie, who just adores Hartbeeps. He’s a shy little thing and Hartbeeps has been an absolute miracle worker on him. We both love attending classes and it’s a great way for us to have a special time together whilst having loads of fun!
Now it’s my turn to bring that joy to others and I’m so happy to be part of the Hartbeeps team.
Drawing from my performing days and mixing that with my experience as a nursery nurse, I have truly found my little happy place. I just love bringing that joy to children and their grown ups, watching them share the Hartbeeps magic together.

Hello! 

I’m Hannah, Mummy to Ethan and a Hartbeeps Imaginator! 

I first encountered the magical world of Hartbeeps when my son was six months old. We had previously tried other baby sensory classes but I’d heard such good things about Hartbeeps from fellow Mums - I decided to give it a go.  My son is now two years old and we have been attending  weekly ever since! 
 

Not only is Hartbeeps fun (for both the children AND us grown ups!) - it’s magical, exciting and an experience like no other.  Every week my son’s eyes would light up when the music started and a huge smile would be planted on his little face when his Hartbeeps Imaginator welcomed all of the babies to Babyland! 

 

I knew instantly that I wanted to become a bigger part of this world and to help create the amazing and magical experience of Hartbeeps for other babies and children myself.

Hartbeeps is such a magical and happy go lucky class. My daughter is a loyal fan ever since she first attended over a year ago, she now recognises the Hartbeeps logo and sings the original songs! Stephanie Jones
Hartbeeps is one-of-a-kind and so much fun for the little ones and adults too, it's by far the most relaxed and engaging toddler class I've taken my 21 month old to. Sarah Gray
We've just been to Hartbeeps in Sevenoaks and it was amazing. My son was enthralled by the props, bubbles and light show. Jaime held everyone's attention (impressive with 10 children aged 9mnths-4yrs). Where else can you become a cat, a cook and a musicia Sarah Hurrell
