Im Mum to Brendan (23), Lewis (9) and Lottie (4) Im also a proud Step Mum to Calum (31). I started baby signing classes with Lewis when he was just a couple of months old, He quickly picked up the signs and started
to communicate with me. His first sign was cake which was quickly followed by more. He definitely had his priorities right! Lewis went on to learn over 100 signs while we attended classes and it helped with his verbal skills too, people would often comment on how well he spoke from a young age.

What is TinyTalk? TinyTalk baby signing classes teach you and your child how to communicate with each other before they can talk using British sign language (BSL). Babies often cry because they want, need or feel something and are unable to communicate that with parents. Learning signing from a young age gives your baby the tools and confidence to communicate and also reassures them of their understanding of the world. Signing is always used alongside the spoken word which often supports early verbal communication. We see it, say it, sign it.

As well as being educational TinyTalk classes are so much fun! Each class is an hour long and split into two halves.
During the first half we have signing, singing and sensory activities all structured around a weekly theme. The themes vary each week, so we're always learning something different. We use lots of fun props, instruments and books to bring our signs to life and stimulate your babys imagination!
The second half of our class is social time. There are toys to keep the babies entertained and refreshments are provided for the adults. There is also the opportunity for an all important biscuit! The social time is great for meeting other adults in the area and sharing stories.

Toddler classes are so much fun! Suitable from around 18 months to 4 years. In our toddler classes we harness your preschoolers energy with fun and physical activities. We dance, jump, hop and run around while singing lots of songs. All our classes are designed to work on skills within the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. Your toddler will love learning things such as colours and counting while working on their communication and sharing skills. We focus on speech as well as continuing with learning new BSL signs.

So come and join us I would love to share the magic of TinyTalk with you and your child!
