Hartbeeps (www.hartbeeps.com) is an innovative preschool music-based development class running at CUFOS in Muswell Hill.
The sessions are heavily focused on play development, and are a completely different experience to traditional music and movement classes. Each week, an everyday environment, such as ‘bath-time’, is explored as grown-ups and children work together to build a colourful, tactile wonderland to the backdrop of emotive and original music.
The highly sensory sessions use innovative props, dress-up, role-play, puppetry, special lighting effects, and even scents, to help inspire little ones’ creative development. Each session is seamlessly tailored to the Government’s guidelines for education – the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Classes are split into three age/ stage ranges:
Happy House: walking to 4 years
Original and traditional songs are used in each themed session.
BabyBeeps: sitting to walking
Rich in language development, Babybeeps sessions take babies and grown-ups to ‘Babyland’ – a place where everyday activities and routines are turned into ‘sing song’ events, with happy claps and puppet characters.
BabyBells: birth to sitting
Hartbeeps has taken some of the principles from baby yoga and the Doula philosophy, along with baby calming techniques to offer this original experience to a backdrop of contemporary songs, lullabies and beautiful music. Sessions aim to encourage bonding and introduce gently stimulating sensory experiences to little ones.
