TinyTalk Baby Sign Language - baby signing, baby sign, baby sign classes



Welcome to TinyTalk, Kent Downs. I'm Deb and I first discovered baby signing when my son was about 5
months old. I was keen to do something different with him, and I loved the thought of getting my baby brain back into shape by learning a new skill!
We made a 60 mile round trip each week to attend our nearest TinyTalk class (yes, it was that good!), and before long Nico was starting to pick up the signs. He first signed back to me at about 9 months, and at his peak used over 70 signs regularly! I really believe it eased the frustrations of being a small toddler; we were able to communicate long before he could talk.
When my daughter was born I naturally signed with her right from the start - it's completely amazing when your tiny child tells you they've heard a noise, or seen an aeroplane or need a drink! Come and join in the fun at my classes! We sing familiar nursery rhymes, songs and stories and sign along to them, learning 150 signs to use at home as part of daily life. And there's some social time too for babies to play and interract and for us grown-ups to have a cuppa - how civilised! I look forward to meeting you and your little one soon...

Meet Deborah...

Children:Nico, aged 11 and Lilou who's 9.

Location:Kent

Favourite Sign:Sorry (my son still uses this when he's genuinely sorry!)

Qualifications:Modern languages and music..

Favourite Film:Inception, The Greatest Showman or the Lord of the Rings Triology.

Pet Hate:Mm...bad spelling, laziness, dog mess, bigotry, having no storage, car exhaust...the list goes on!

Secret Passion:Books. I'd love to do away with our TV and make more time for reading.

I most admire:Mums who battle against the odds to do the very best by their children.

I love baby signing because:It gives families a chance to learn what their baby is thinking - how amazing is that! I remember the first time my son told me he'd heard a noise in the garden and it was a bird! He was 13 months!

Meet my Mini Teacher, Lauren Gupta-Miles

Hi, I’m Lauren.

I joined one of Deb’s classes when my daughter was 8 months old- we both loved it- and I knew I wanted to get involved in teaching with TinyTalk.

Signing alongside speech comes naturally to me, having spent the last 10 years working in Early Years Education and focusing on Special Needs teaching in recent years. I found the format of TinyTalk classes familiar and good fun, but what really grabbed me was the enjoyment of sharing in communication with families; seeing parents’ confidence grow and babies’ understanding and excitement. Young babies enjoying a genuine two-way interaction with a parent, long before their speech develops.

My TinyTalker Vedanti’s first signs were: ‘milk’, ‘more’ and ‘duck’. Early on in our baby signing journey, she picked up a rubber duck in the bath and signed ‘duck’ to me. It’s truly exhilarating when you get that first window into their thought process- and they can tell you what they want! At 11 months, she’s beginning to comment on what she sees- and she is definitely reassured by the fact I understand her; it’s great to be able to have a ‘conversation’ with her now.

TinyTalk works- and it’s lots of fun! Come and join us for signing, singing and fabulous sensory activities, all well-matched to key skills in your child’s development.

There’s also time for you: we want to make you a cuppa and get to know you too!
Hope to see you soon
