Welcome to the TinyTalk classes of
Charlotte Nolan

"" Hello everyone!


My name is Charlotte and I am the TinyTalk Teacher for the Havant, Emsworth and Cowplain Area!

From early on in my pregnancy, I knew that I wanted to take my baby to a "group like this". I knew that I would want to spend time with other parents and find a way to communicate with my baby AND
for my baby to communicate with me!

I started going to TinyTalk Classes with my little boy when he was about 4/5 months old and we LOVED it! We both loved the singing; I loved the signing and the social time - actually having time to drink a hot drink (and not having to make it - bonus!). It was great to spend time playing with my son and talking to other parents - this was really valuable. As my little boy was young when we started, you can imagine he slept quite a bit, but I was able to share the songs and signs that I had learnt at the class when he was wide awake at other times in the day. As he got older, it was lovely that he got time to play with his TinyTalk Buddies and... He started to sign!! A-maz-ing! His first sign was "milk" (he was about 6 or 7 months old).

My husband was very cynical about TinyTalk and just thought "it would be good for me to get out of the house" but he soon got to see the benefits and has been totally amazed by our son's signing ability.

I am a trained primary school teacher and I strongly believe that communication skills are so important (another reason why I wanted to do a baby signing class). What I love about TinyTalk is that signs are not taught to replace speech they are taught to reinforce it - my son's Health Visitor was very impressed with his understanding of language and instructions and I put some of that down to our "TinyTalking".

My classes will be informative, helpful and above all GREAT FUN. Please contact me for information about classes that I'm running.
