Hi, I’m Lisa and I run classes in Boldmere, Erdington, Four Oaks, Lichfield and Sutton Coldfield. Here I am pictured with my own TinyTalkers Mary-Kay and Harriet. As well as a mum, I’m a qualified teacher in Science and Psychology, so understand the importance of early communication and bonding. Our Baby Signing classes are suitable from newborn with little ones moving onto our Toddler classes from around 18 months until pre-school age. I also offer classes in nurseries as well as training for nurseries, childminders and families who cannot attend classes.

I began signing with Mary-Kay, when she was four months old. She made her first sign, at 9 months when she woke up from her nap and signed to daddy that she wanted ‘milk’. Shortly after she was able to confidently tell us when she wanted milk, juice, food or bed. Over the next few months, she signed ‘duck’, ‘all gone’, ‘toast’, ‘bird’, ‘flower’, ‘dog’, ‘teddy bear’ and ‘fish’. From then on, there was a sudden explosion of signs, with new ones practically every day. By 16 months old she had between 40-50 signs and around 20 words or animal sounds, and just a month later over 80 signs and 50 words. She would even ask for ‘more’ ‘signs’! By her 2nd birthday, she could sign over 200 words and say over 500, speaking in 3 or more word sentences and describing things by size, colour, loudness etc. I'm excited to say that my youngest Harriet made her first sign, also 'milk' at just 12 weeks, having started signing with her at birth. This was quickly followed by 'bath', 'nappy', 'daddy' and 'mummy' by 4 months. Like her big sister, she had an extensive signing and spoken vocabulary by her second birthday and continued to enjoy attending TinyTalk Toddlers up to 4 years of age.

The benefits still amaze me and I love seeing the babies at my classes start signing. Come and see for yourself how rewarding baby signing is. Classes are suitable from birth and include singing, signing, props, puppets, scarves, music, bubbles, mirrors, sensory shapes, instruments, books and much more! This is followed by playtime and refreshments. Class costs are per family per hour session (no extra for twins or siblings).
