Do you want to know what your baby is thinking and feeling before they can tell you? TinyTalk have been successfully helping families communicate with their babies for 18 years! Our award-winning classes allow you and your little one to learn signs to communicate their needs and interests
BEFORE they can talk.
How is the class structured?
The first 30 minutes is dedicated to signing using modern and traditional nursery rhymes, interactive props, and sensory activities to keep your baby stimulated.
The second half of the class is for free play with lots of fun, age-appropriate toys for your Tiny Talker and PLENTY of tea, coffee, and biscuits for you. Here you can ask questions about a sign we’ve used or one you’d like to know or just simply sit and chat with like-minded parents and carers.
What will we learn?
Each week is themed; you will learn a set of core signs based around a particular subject. You’ll learn signs for family members, food and drinking, animals, emotions, holidays, the weather and so much more.
At TinyTalk we use British Sign Language (BSL) and NEVER makeup signs. We respect the language of the deaf community and only teach signs that are BSL recognised.
The songs we use are all popular nursery rhymes so you won’t have to purchase CDs of made-up songs to be able to join in straight away. Not a confident singer? Not a problem. Join in as much as you feel comfortable with – the main thing is that you enjoy the session and your baby sees this.
We love a biscuit. There’s no rushing off after class because we’ve sung our last song. Each session includes social time to catch your breath, have a drink and enjoy the company of the friends you will make here through a shared love of our children (and biscuits).
I have 2 (3,4?!) children – will it be expensive?
We know children are costly and it just wouldn’t feel right to cash in on parents who want to take their children to baby sign classes, that’s why you only pay once regardless of how many children you have or how many adults want to come. Older sibling has an inset day? Partner has a day off? Bring them along! Grandad wants to see what all the fuss is about? Bring him too! We are a family class run by fellow parents who understand all the roles you have to juggle, who love signing and would love to share their passion for it with you.
I want to book but you’re halfway through a term
No worries! You are welcome to come along to any remaining classes before the new term starts. We do not have a complex ‘level system’ whereby you baby has to have completed each week to progress. We know kids are smart; 4 months or 4 years your child can still pick up signs so why not give it a try?!
Children:My son is 6 and my daughter is 3
Pet Hate:Bad manners
I love baby signing because:The 100th sign your baby makes is just as exciting as the first. Seeing the pure joy on a child's face at being able to tell you something before they can talk is indescribable.
