|Welcome to the TinyTalk classes of Rose Virden
Hello, my name is Rose and this is my Tiny Talker Rana and we live in Walthamstow. I started teaching baby sign classes in the local area at the beginning of September 2014. When my son was a baby, I was amazed to find out that all the research suggests that babies who are taught sign language before they speak have a massive advantage when learning to talk and frequently learn to speak earlier than babies who are not taught sign
language. I signed with my son for over a year and we got so many benefits, I wanted to share baby signing with other parents in my local area. |
Please see below testimonials from class attendees:
"I cannot speak highly enough of Rose & baby signing - it's been revolutionary! Edie has taken to it like a duck to water & my family have all found it so enjoyable & useful, enhancing our relationship with her. Her communication skills have definitely helped with reducing frustrations. Particularly around communicating her needs with food, drink, sleep & play!" - Faye
"I, but especially my baby, love going to Rose's signing class. Rose presents the songs and signs in a happy way and Luca reacts more and more enthusiastically to it. So the babies learn by having lots of fun." - Natalie
Please see below testimonial from a nursery manager (where I give classes):
"I am a huge fan of baby signing and have been using this method of communication for approximately 10 years now. You have to use it to believe it, in all the nurseries I have managed I have always gone back to tiny talk and implemented these sessions and here are a few reasons why.
enhance communication skills
relieve frustration for both staff and babies/children
aids children EAL and SEND
teaching of another language in its own right
All of the above have made a massive impact on how children develop, when I first took on the nursery that I currently own and manage, the behaviour was poor. Since March when Rose started completing the classes. the children have developed their skills to have positive interactions with each other and are able to communicate with each other." - Natasha, nursery manager
