My classes run on Mondays in Drayton, Abingdon (OX14) and on Fridays in Crowmarsh Gifford (OX10).

BABY SIGNING (0-2YRS)
Our course is BSL-based (British Sign Language) and designed for newborns-2 yrs. During the first 35-40 mins of each hourly class we cover around 6 core signs for that week’s theme plus a wide range of extra signs to help the more experienced signers expand their vocab.

We learn through singing well-known children’s rhymes/action songs - aided by pictures, props, puppets etc. We also further develop our TinyTalkers’ senses and motor skills through communication-focused activities with sensory toys, e.g. scarves, bubbles & mirrors. Every third week we re-cap on the previous two, as well as having signed book time. Each class also includes social time, when babies play and adults relax over a cuppa!

It's never too early (or late!) to start signing with your baby and, space permitting, I'm happy for new families to join at any point in a term so please contact me now to book a free trial!

NB: PLEASE PROVIDE A MOBILE NO. AS MY EMAILS ARE OFTEN FILED AS SPAM!

TODDLER TALK (18MTHS-3YRS) CURRENTLY POSTPONED
Fun, lively (and often noisy!), our interactive toddler sessions focus on developing children’s early speech. Designed for walking children who may have already said their first few words, they are a natural follow-on to our baby classes (though you don't need to have signed beforehand to join). Through action songs/rhymes; numeracy, literacy & parachute games; books and instruments, these classes use signs to support growing spoken vocabularies, build on language/listening skills and develop key social skills e.g. turn taking/sharing.

Classes follow a similar format to our baby sessions, with 35-40 mins singing, signing, games etc. followed by social time. So come along and join in the fun! See below for details of your local classes.

TAKE A LOOK AT BABY SIGNING IN ACTION!
To help you gain a 'visual' sense of baby signing and my classes, please follow my Scrapbook link above for a range of class photos as well as comments from several of my families and my own TinyTalk story. Do also watch the following fantastic video clips!

First, a 5-month-old TinyTalker shows that after only 5 weeks he understands 'milk' - a key first sign! Read more of his story on my Scrapbook page.


Next, a 50+ signer shows that at 9 months she can ask for 'more'! Visit my Scrapbook page for 2 more videos of her progress at 18 months.
