Hartbeeps is BACK for the autumn term! Classes run throughout the week in Kew, East Sheen, Barnes and slightly further afield – and of course are Covid-19 secure. Unfortunately they are unable to offer trials and drop-ins at the moment due to restrictions, but the classes have been so popular since they launched in the area a few years ago we’re sure you’ll love them! You also only need to book half a term (six weeks), and they hope to be able to offer trials again some time soon. For more information, please contact kimmy@hartbeeps.com, or you can book online.

HartbeepsHartbeeps is an educational, interactive and fun class that grown-ups can enjoy together with their little ones. Classes have been designed by child development experts and combine music, dramatic play, story telling, creative movement and baby signing. Each magical session is specially created to help little ones grow in confidence, develop social skills, and attain the appropriate developmental milestones, as well as giving some precious bonding time in a truly fun and entertaining way. Each week the Hartbeepers play with friendly characters and exciting props, all set to Hartbeeps original music of classic and remixed rhymes and lullabies, and following the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. There are also lots of bubbles, sparkles and magic sprinkles, guaranteed to make people come back for more!

There are three stages of the Hartbeeps programme, with a different sound journey and adventure each week where children might, for example, find themselves going to the farm, the seaside or even into space:

Hartbeeps Baby Bells– Baby Bells (6 weeks to sitting): these lovely, gentle sessions use elements of baby yoga, baby massage and calming techniques to guide little ones and new mums through the magical, imaginary Baby Land and experience remixed nursery rhymes and lullabies. They’ll meet friendly puppet characters, be introduced to beautiful, sensory props and discover sparkly parachutes – all designed to delight those freshly acquired senses and help babies to uncurl and develop.

Hartbeeps Baby Beeps– Baby Beeps (sitting to toddling): a sound safari transports babies through a buzzing, bouncing, rhythmical world where early babbles are transformed into song. Working with babies’ innate desire to communicate and their ability to tune into rhythm, Babybeeps uses bright and beautiful props, puppets and bubbles, together with signing, to encourage both language and physical development.

Hartbeeps Happy House– Happy House (walking to 4 years old): these sessions keep busy toddlers and pre-schoolers happy and occupied as they are taken on a big, bold, confidence-building adventure every week. Younger siblings are welcome too.

Kimmy Newell brings Hartbeeps classes to the Barnes area, and classes are now available in Putney (Mondays), Kew (Tuesdays), East Sheen (Wednesdsys), Barnes (Fridays), and other locations in West London throughout the week. Classes can be attended on a drop-in basis, or you can make savings by signing up for a whole term.
