Hi I'm Joanna (Jo) Petterson and welcome to my baby and toddler signing site. I and my teacher Rebecca run award winning, multi sensory classes and offer birthday party entertainment in Pontyclun, LLanharran, Cowbridge, Pencoed and Bridgend.

Although I have my British Sign Language (BSL) qualifications up to level 2 and I'm on my way to level 3, I got into baby signing when I had my daughter Cerys. I've always known how to sign as my parents are deaf and I've signed from a young age to communicate with them. So when I had my daughter I wanted to make sure she could sign too, so she could communicate with her grandparents. As I was doing this, lots of friends were asking me to teach them a few things to use with their own children, so becoming a TinyTalk teacher made common sense for me to do. I believe parents and babies will enjoy my classes as I pride myself on making it fun as I believe that's how both you and your baby learn best and go on to remember and use the signs in daily life.

We also have award winning home learning resources, such as signing packs, DVDs and CDs all available to purchase to help you or other family members carry on signing at home. Please contact me to purchase any of these as I often have special offers on our award winning home learning resources.

Please see below for info on my classes, but feel free to contact me (IF YOU HAVEN'T HAD A REPLY- NOT INCLUDING IF IT IS AN OUT OF OFFICE REPLY WITHIN 48 HOURS PLEASE CONTACT ME BY PHONE) or come to a free taster session where I'm sure you and your baby will enjoy yourselves in my relaxed, professional environment where I will try to answer any questions you may have. I look forward to seeing you soon!

A wonderful example of some TinyTalk babies around the UK showing their signing skills.



Mini Teacher 1: Rebecca Molino
Hi, I'm Rebecca. I have recently joined Jo as a TinyTalk teacher after attending her classes and realising how amazing baby signing is! My daughter is now 15 months and can now do a wide range of signs. It makes our communication so much easier, only recently I was unsure what she was trying to tell me until she signed 'flowers'. I looked up and she had, indeed, spotted a whole row of flowers on top of a wall! Although my son is at school and no longer has a 'need' for signing to aid his communication, he also joins in with all the signing that goes on at home. He loves signing along to songs and in learning BSL, he is learning the basics of another language, which is always an asset.

The classes are fun and friendly and we learn signs through singing and playing as well as doing sensory activities and looking at books! The second half of the class is social time - for babies and for their carers! Babies play and carers get a hot (or cold) drink and a great biscuit selection! TinyTalk is great for babies but, great for those that bring them to the class too. It's a place to relax with your babies, have fun, learn a new skill and to make friends.
