Hello I'm Therese your local TinyTalk teacher. I'm also mum to ex-TinyTalkers Hannah (14) and Max (10)! I've been teaching TinyTalk classes for 13 years and still love each and every class!

I first read about baby signing when Hannah was 6 months old. I thought it sounded wonderful, too good to be true in fact, that she'd be able to tell me what she wanted before she could speak.

At 15 months Hannah had a signing vocabulary of over 50 signs with favourites being milk, more, bird, rain, bath and daddy. Baby signing helped us avoid the frustration babies feel when they try to communicate and we adults are unable to understand them. She could tell me when she was thirsty or hungry or when she was tired. She could even say 'please' when she wanted something! Wonderful!!

I started signing to Max when he was just 6 days old, 'milk' and 'bed' were the first signs. He initially watched with great interest and finger wiggling! It was very exciting when he made his first sign 'bed' at 8 months. By the time he was 12 months old he had lots of signs under his belt, 'daddy', 'car', 'stop' and 'food' being his favourites.

TinyTalk classes are an hour long, starting with BSL based signing and singing to well known nursery rhymes and actions songs. Social time follows - playtime for the babies (toys provided) and chat time for the mums (refreshments provided). The classes are held in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. The mums love the hot drink that's made for them, as well as the chocolate biscuits that are available! Social time is a great way to meet other mums and ask any questions you have on baby signing.

2014 saw the exciting introduction of some fabulous new sensory activities designed to encourage babies development and help promote early communication eg. scarves, bubbles, sensory shapes, mirrors and much much more.

The toddler classes (suitable for the more mobile toddler approx 18mths +) are great fun too with lots of action songs, books, games, even a parachute! We work on speech development as well as listening skills, sharing and turn taking.

Please contact me to find out how you can join in with all the TinyTalk fun.

Mini Teacher 1: Claire Hankinson
Hi I’m Claire, mum to 2 beautiful children including ex-TinyTalker Logan who is 4 years old.

I decided to use baby sign language with my son having seen the heard about the amazing results, I just couldn't believe how fantastic it would be that he could communicate with me. I was absolutely sold on the idea and started attending Thérèse's Stockton Heath class in March 2014. He did his first sign "milk" at 7 months, shortly after joining.

I have found signing invaluable, as it has really helped Logan through his frustration from not being able to tell me what he wants. Every day I find it amazing that he can communicate with me as well as with his big sister Laetitia rather than shouting to what he needs and they have a special bond because of it.

I feel very passionately that every parent should be given the opportunity to learn these fantastic skills which is why I decided to join Therese. I'm really excited to be teaching classes in Grappenhall and Lowton.
