About Us

Diane McKinstry TTC, who has a Graduate Diploma in Early Childhood is the owner and director of Hartbeeps Hibiscus Coast - Warkworth NZ. She delivers a unique blend of original music classes and mini productions to young children aged 0 to 5.

An early year’s practitioner and mother, her interests have always involved the creative arts, writing, dance, creative therapies, the miracle of new life and how young children learn.

By transforming everyday environments into colourful, tactile 'wonderlands', participants join in a world of the imagination. State of the art music production, original music composition, sound effects, songs and sound plays, lighting effects, innovative props, and puppetry together with a vast array of multi-sensory techniques immerse our young Hartbeepers in original and highly specialised experiences.
