Bloom baby classes bakewell and leek
Hi everyone! I’m Hayley owner of Bloom Baby Classes Bakewell and Leek! I’m 32 years old and a proud Mummy to my smiley little boy, Oscar.
For the past 11 years, I have been working as a fully qualified Primary school teacher in my local schools, teaching children right from the little ones of Reception through to the leaders of the school- year 6. Working with children and supporting their love-of-learning has always been my passion and I feel so proud of my achievements during this time of my life.
On 20th July, 2021, my son was born. He is my little ray-of-sunshine and my absolute world! After his birth, I battled with postnatal anxiety caused by PTSD from my birth. During my maternity leave, something that really helped me to feel like myself was when taking him to a variety of baby classes. Being surrounded by other parents, knowing they understood the highs and lows of life with a baby made me feel like I was in a safe space and I belonged once more. I was thrilled to be able to join Holly at her Bloom classes nearby. From the moment I found out about Bloom online, to walking through the doors of the class for the first time, I knew that not only was this the place for me and my son, but this was where I wanted to work now too!
Bloom classes are so engaging, colourful and exciting with bespoke music and an abundance of multi-sensory activities. I especially loved that every week, the parents were kept informed throughout the class of the benefits of each part, whether it be the development of fine or gross motor skills; hand eye coordination; body awareness; rhythm/ musical understanding and so many more. As a teacher myself, knowing these classes were professionally planned and that each element of the class was thoroughly researched meant the world to me attending as both a mummy and a teacher with my ever-inquisitive growing boy!
Bloom classes have allowed me to have a bright future ahead with a work-life balance that I was struggling to maintain as a teacher. I now have quality time to spend as a mummy to my son and my family and friends, including my supportive husband Tom and lovable Cavapoo dog Archie. It really is a dream job!
I can’t wait to meet you soon and to support your parenting journeys at our Bloom baby classes in Bakewell, Leek and Matlock!

supporting post natal wellbeing
As part of our continued effort to support parents and post natal wellbeing we have created the Rainbow Parachute Project.
When booking onto a Bloom Baby Class class you will be asked if you are able to round up your total basket to the nearest pound or add a little more if you are able to.
All money raised will go to post natal mental health charities across the UK, providing life saving telephone support and in person support groups where parents can share their experiences and get professional support from trained mental health specialists.
