****TinyTalk Baby Signing, Toddler Talking for B77, B79, DE12, DE14 & LE67.****

Hi, I'm Felicity (AKA Fliss) and I have been a TinyTalk Baby Signing, Toddler Talking teacher since 2012.

I've see how worthwhile and brilliant TinyTalk baby signing is as a means of communication first hand, both as a
childcare professional and as a mum. As a mum I have enjoyed seeing the pleasure my son got from the classes and felt the jubilation at seeing him sign for the first time to ask for his milk. I decided to become a TinyTalk teacher so that I could pass on and share the joy and achievement felt when aiding children to communicate with confidence.

So what is TinyTalk I hear you ask. TinyTalk baby signing classes teach you and your child how to communicate with each other before they can talk using british sign language (BSL). Toddler Talking then takes those natural attempts to speak and builds on this using signing as a support where words can be hard.
Babies often cry because they want, need or feel something and as their parent you are tasked with working out what that could be. This can sometimes be challenging, but if your baby can sign what it is they need, want or how they feel to you by using a simple hand gesture, it can be a lot easier and so much less frustrating for everyone concerned.

Class format - we have half an hour of signing along to nursery rhymes and action songs, using props, instruments and books. Each week you will learn around 5-6 baby signs for useful everyday words/phrases - allowing you to talk to your baby for the first time using sign language. There are lots of hints and tips on how to sign at home with them, and lots of repetition of both the signs and the songs so you can't help but pick them up. This is followed by half an hour of social time with toys for the babies and lots of tea, coffee and chocolate biscuits for you. This is a great part of the class as it gives you the opportunity to chat to other mums you may know (the classes are great for post natal group meet ups) as well as to make new friends.

Classes are suitable from newborn, with babies often starting from just a few weeks old, up to around 18/24 months old where children can then progress to the toddler classes.
