Balerno Bowling Club

Hartbeeps for all pre-schoolers and their Mum/carer, introducing music activities to share.

We offer a multi-sensory musical experience for our babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. Each week we go on sound journeys using puppets, props and parachutes all to our original Hartbeeps music, reworked nursery rhymes and lullabies. We may go on a Teddy Bear’s Picnic, into the jungle or dabble in the duck pond! We offer activities to engage and awaken babies senses and help our little ones develop cognitive thinking skills, promote active learning, build big confidence and the best part, have fun with their grown up.

Happy House (confident walkers-preschool)

Our fun-filled, highly interactive toddler class for busy toddlers, pre-schoolers and their little siblings! We put the children at the heart of our story as we explore the Happy House and beyond!
