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

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

Well now, with TinyTalk Baby Signing - you 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!

Its 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.

And with TinyTalk Baby Signing Classes and TinyTalk Toddler Talking & Signing Classes you can combine this with a fun filled session that both you & your little one will love!

We offer weekly classes in venues around Cardiff & Caerphilly borough, where you can learn how to sign with your little one. Our 30 minute sessions are great fun, delivered by enthusiastic & passionate teachers, who will teach you everything you need to know to start successfully signing with your little one. Then enjoy 30 minutes of chat & refreshments during social time, while your little ones play & socialise too!

Join us now!
Our next term begins w/c 9th Sept 19, contact us now to register your interest. Take a look at our Facebook page for our summer holiday timetable at https://www.facebook.com/TinyTalk.MidGlamorgan/

Meet Catherine ...

Children:Between us we have Chloe, Olivia, Max & Mason

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 has 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!

Meet my Mini-Teacher, Emma Williams

Hi, I’m Emma! I joined Catherine and Nicola to become a mini teacher after taking my eldest son, Max, to Catherine’s classes for 3 years. I first discovered TinyTalk when he was about 6 months old, after searching for a class to help me understand what he wanted. It completely changed our lives when he began signing and we could start communicating without so much frustration!

TinyTalk is the only class we continued consistently, and would have carried on if Max wasn’t starting nursery! He can now sign over 250 words, and I truly believe the reason most people think he is older is because TinyTalk has helped him build a solid knowledge of how to communicate effectively. He now uses signs to interact with his baby brother, which is lovely to watch!

I’ve enjoyed going to classes so much - and I really hope I can now help other families learn such a beneficial new skill! I look forward to hopefully seeing you & your little one soon!
