Welcome to the TinyTalk classes of
Mollie Prior

"" I'm Mollie and with Rebecca we are your TinyTalk teachers for Evesham, Droitwich & Worcester North!

I discovered signing with my son Henry and I couldn't believe from such a young age he was able to tell me when he wanted his *milk* or that he wanted *more* food. No more tears trying to communicate his needs to me, we had signing! At 2 years old, he was able to use over 150 signs alongside an emerging
vocabulary and at 5 years he now has really developed speech and language skills and his reading his incredible.

I couldn't imagine our lives without signing, from simple things like telling us that he was hungry to more complicated sentences such as Mummy is cooking his food or that he could hear the dog barking. Once your baby has learnt to ‘talk’ you'll find they have plenty to say! Signing enriches your parent and baby bond and develops amazing communication. It is most effective when family and friends get involved too and wherever we went Henry happily showed off his signing skills and won round the most steadfast of cynics!

The importance of baby signing really hit home when Henry was in hospital with breathing difficulties when he was 15 months old. He was very poorly requiring oxygen before they diagnosed a chest infection. Thanks to ‘Miss Polly had a Dolly...’ which we had learnt in class, we were able to tell Henry he was *sick*, introduce the *doctor* and that he was going to get some *medicine*. A few hours after Henry had received his antibiotics he sat bolt upright and signed *food* for the first time! I have never been so proud (or so relieved!).

Your class is made up of 30 mins signing and 30 mins social time. By learning the signs through song, it makes them easy to remember and a lot more fun for babies (and parents!). We also have lots of interactive sensory elements in our classes too such as finding our faces with mirrors and playing peekaboo under our silky scarves. We always celebrate our new signing stories in the group which is a great encouragement and our clever babies can earn their own certificates!

The second half of the class is a social time for parents and babies with toys to play with and hot drinks and refreshments. If it's the only hot drink you have had all week (we’ve all been there!) it makes it all the more special. Our social time is a chance to chat and meet other local parents and realise that perhaps you are not the only one going through some of the trials of parenthood!

Tiny Talk is ready to help you understand your baby and enrich your lives through signing. With baby signing you have to see it to believe it so get in touch and book your first class today and find out what your baby would like to say to you!

Meet my Mini Teacher, Rebecca Sutton

Hello, I’m Rebecca, a mother of three wonderful girls Hera, Minerva and Gaia. After falling in love with baby signing I decided to completely change my career and become a TinyTalk mini teacher, an absolute world away from arranging luxury holidays!

I have been attending TinyTalk classes with Mollie for just over two and a half years, starting with my eldest daughter Hera. Hera was seven months when we started our signing journey and we instantly fell in love with all that was TinyTalk, the concept, the community and the communication.

My husband and I instantly saw increased engagement with Hera, especially around food and feeding, it helped us so much when she could sign ‘more’ and ‘drink’ to name a few. By eight and a half months she had 5 signs and yes, I have and will keep all my girl’s certificates. As her signing increased, we noticed the frustrations eased for all of us, she could now ask for something, we no longer had to guess – we were communicating as a family. The benefits for us were not just in the early stages, the benefits actually grew as she got older, we found it was helpful as she started to talk. If we didn’t understand her words, but she knew the sign (and she was well over 100 signs at this stage) she’d say and sign together, it helped us to know what she was trying to say, then we could better help her pronounce the word.

However, what really amazed us was when we started signing from day one with our second daughter, Minerva. Keeping it simple with the sign for milk but as the weeks past we saw her hand flexes develop into more controlled open and closing fists, and by two months she was gesturing a clear sign for milk. It was also amazing to watch Hera signing to Minerva as she grew. It made Hera feel like she was really teaching her little sister something and they’d both get really excited. TinyTalk Toddlers is a class I still continue with now with Minerva.

Now as I start my teaching journey with TinyTalk I do so with my youngest daughter, Gaia in hand – we’re both starting new signing journeys together.

It was a highlight to our week, whether the best part of attending TinyTalk classes has been hearing fellow parents and babies signing stories, encouraging each other, just listening to each other’s weeks or build new friendships, its hard to say. I just want to make sure that everyone who comes to one of my classes can have a great experience and I can’t wait to hear about all the amazing new journeys which are yet to start!
