Hi, Iím Rebecca, Mum to Beatrice and Tess and TinyTalk teacher for the North West Kent region.

I chose to become a TinyTalk teacher after signing with my eldest daughter, Beatrice. We both enjoyed the classes and I loved learning a new skill, even if Beatrice didnít seem initially that keen on signing back to me! She must have been taking it all in however, as a few months later, she was suddenly able to tell me, through signing, when she wanted a drink. Shortly after, she could tell me when she needed her nappy changed and we could actually have a conversation at the park as she pointed out the wildlife she could see. She continued to sign as her speech developed, dropping signs as she could say the word and now doesnít stop talking! Iím recruiting her to help teach my younger daughter now as I loved being able to communicate with her in this way and strengthen our bond.

TinyTalk classes are fun, relaxed and friendly. We spend the first half hour teaching 50 signs across the term, through singing and signing familiar nursery rhymes and songs; as well as engaging sensory activities, all chosen to help babies develop the key non-verbal skills needed for communication. The second half of the class is the time for the babies to explore new toys whilst you have the chance to have a hot drink and a biscuit whilst having an actual adult conversation.

Terms are usually 12 weeks long, building up 150 British Sign Language signs over a year, with opportunities to come and try out a class first.

Classes run for a minimum of 36 weeks per year; usually in three x 12 week terms, with a one week half term break.
Mondays 10-11 Manor Field Pavilion, Hartley
Tuesday 10-11 Rochester United Reform Church
Wednesdays 9.15-10.15 Meopham Village Hall

TinyTalk Baby Signing classes are suitable for babies from birth up to, approximately, 18 months old.

All classes are pre-booked at a cost of £6.00 per week. If you join a class mid-way through the term, you only pay for the remaining weeks. 'First class PAYG' is offered for the first week only, if you have not attended a TinyTalk class before. If you need to miss a week, refunds are not able to be given and classes cannot be carried over. However, please feel free to send a friend, or other carer(s) for your baby, in your place.


Older, pre-school siblings are welcome to attend with their baby brothers and sisters at no extra charge. The price is per (immediate) family, per class. You do not pay extra for bringing twins, triplets or an older/younger sibling
