Welcome to the TinyTalk classes of
Kelly John

"" ** TinyTalk Baby Sign Spring Term starts week 7th January 2019 running until week April 1st 2019 with a week break for February half term. Classes running in Fratton, Southsea, Anchorage Park & Drayton **


Hi there! I'm Kelly, Mama to Sebby (my delightfully wild 2 year old!) and I am so excited to be delivering TinyTalk baby signing classes to the Portsmouth and Southsea area.

I started attending TinyTalk with Sebby
from around 3 months old and loved the group from the get go. So when the opportunity arose for me to become a class teacher I couldn’t say no!
Seb’s first sign was at 11 months old for *fish! He then jumped to 10 signs within a month and shortly after had his first ‘sentence’ telling me his (bubble tube) *fish were *awake. Being able to have this pre-verbal communication with him is just amazing and is exactly why I was so keen to learn and teach baby sign language with him. It is also most definitely helping to ease the frustration at the moment with him communicating what he wants!

It is so wonderful seeing other parents and carers enjoy the group as much as we have and share in their signing news and certificates! I'm so thrilled to be able to facilitate this further!
Baby classes are available from newborn to 18months/2 years old. Classes are one hour long with a weekly theme. We start by using popular nursery rhymes to introduce core signs (so no needing to learn new/different songs!) and have lots of fun in a relaxed environment. We also include different multi-sensory activities in each session. All of these activities have been carefully chosen to help enhance our communication skills and fall under the guidelines of communication and language within the Early Years Foundation Stage. This is followed by some time for the babies to play and the grown ups to have a chat, a cuppa and a biscuit!

Why not come along to a class and find out more about the benefits of baby signing and toddler talking?

Meet my Mini Teacher, Ally McCormick

Hi, I'm Ally and I'm a TinyTalk Mini Teacher working with Kelly. I go to Kelly's Tuesday classes with my daughter, and I loved it so much that I wanted to do it too!

I loved the classes as a Mum because it was a skill we could learn together, and the pure magic that came from her being able to tell me what she wants or can see. It's ace when other people see her signing as well, because they're always amazed!!

I'm so excited to share this special time with you and your babies, and to help you get those magic moments too :)
