Wouldn't it be great if your baby could tell you what they wanted?

Imagine - No more guessing if they are hungry or thirsty, if their teeth are hurting or they just want a hug from mum or dad - maybe they
haven't seen them all day?

Now, with TinyTalk Baby Signing - they can!

Babies have the capacity to acquire & use vocabulary to communicate through sign, long before they can speak - you just need to teach them how!

It’s great for Toddlers too! Is your toddler getting frustrated with not being understood? Is their speech not decipherable yet? Help them communicate successfully, & ensure they can be understood by teaching them to sign to support their speech development - reducing frustration for both of you.

We offer weekly classes in Cardiff & Caerphilly, where you can learn how to sign with your little one. Both of you will love our 30 min sessions – they are great fun, delivered by enthusiastic & passionate teachers, who will teach you everything you need to know to start successfully signing. Then enjoy 30 mins of refreshments & an important chance for you to chat, while your little ones play & chat too!

HOW TO BOOK
We have very limited spaces available but its not too late to join in the fun! Just email catherineW@tinytalk.co.uk to book a full/half term or a taster session where space permits, or click below to join the waiting list.

Meet Catherine ...

Children:Between us we have Chloe & Olivia

Location:North Cardiff & Caerphilly County Borough

Favourite Sign:Turtle - it's so cute!

Qualifications:We are multi-skilled between us, being parents helps us understand the frustrations & joys!

Favourite Film:soppy romcoms - Love Actually, Notting Hill etc!

Pet Hate:How long it takes to get out the door in the morning (with a child!), and how much stuff is needed!

Secret Passion:Christmas - is that sad?! Ooh and chocolate!

I most admire:Mummies that make it to the end of the day - still clean!

I love baby signing because:it has made our children so confident & articulate because they have been able to make themselves understood from such an early age. Signing (& singing) helped us avoid tantrums & frustration :)

Meet my Mini Teacher, Nicola Lewis

Hello, I'm Nicola and I joined the team after taking my daughter Olivia to Catherine’s classes. I continued to take Olivia to her TinyTalk class until she turned three and went to nursery (I’d have carried on going otherwise!!)

My favourite sign has to be *mummy*. It absolutely warms your heart when you can see that they know who you are. Even when she started saying ‘muma’, she still signed along just to make sure I really, definitely knew she was talking to me.

When I began TinyTalk, my main concern was that signing would impact on her speech. I couldn’t have been more wrong! Heading to nursey the week after she turned three (very late summer baby!) she is by far the most confident and vocal in her class. I honestly attribute this to our TinyTalk classes, where she has learnt so much – not just to sign but how to interact with others, how to share, listen and use so many different skills through the various sensory activities. I am so so grateful we chose this baby class over any others.

At our lessons you will have so much fun whilst learning a life skill for your whole family, you really can’t beat it!
I hope to see you and your little one at TinyTalk very soon!
