Happity is the UK’s biggest, and only exclusively baby & toddler class finding and booking platform. We have over 100k unique users, 600k page views, and 200k searches per month and growing rapidly!
Happity connects parents through baby & toddler classes with the aim of ending loneliness in new parents. It’s the place to go when it’s 7am, the day is stretching out ahead of you and you want to connect with other parents near you whilst helping your baby to develop. Parents can simply pop in their postcode, age of their child to search and book thousands of classes on happity.co.uk
But we are so much more than a class finding system. We also support parents’ mental wellbeing through monthly expert chats with Clinical Psychologists and other Experts as well as campaigns such as #shoutieselfie to get people talking about MH. We also spent much of the pandemic campaigning the governement to ensure baby & toddler classes could continue – the govt wanted them to but they hadn’t put in place the correct legilsation or communicated it with EHOs. In fact we were nominated for a Parlimentary Award alongside Marcus Rashford and others for our work in supporting new families during Covid which was very exciting!
It’s a hugely exciting time for Kickstarters to be joining Happity. After each lockdown we have grown more, our main competitor closed in the summer, and we are currently fundraising. We have huge plans – we need to solidify our now UK wide brand (Covid took us UK wide as we got 32k classes online to help families stuck at home) and now we need to ensure in-person classes are available to every family across the UK.
We are on track to have over 1m parents use Happity this year, and we are investing in our team, our systems, and our marketing to ensure we go from strength to strength as well as working with Andrea Leadsom and other Government official to hopefully hook up with childrens centres etc.
As part of the UK Governments Kickstart Scheme, we have exciting opportunities for young and passionate team players to join our team at Happity!
