Welcome to the TinyTalk classes of
Sarah Phillips

"" Hi, I'm Sarah and I run TinyTalk baby signing and Toddler Talking classes in the Bromsgrove and Redditch areas.

'In-Person' class numbers WILL BE CAPPED from September 2021, due to the ever changing climate, to still allow a bit of space between families.

**Please note: any changes in government guidelines or another lockdown be actioned, ALL venue classes will be run online**

Why do I love signing? and Why should you try
a class?

I’ve always been interested in sign language and in 2010 obtained my BSL level one.

When my daughter was born in February 2018, I looked for baby classes to take her to, to meet new mums and help Sadie’s early development, and that’s when I found TinyTalk.

Sadie was 4.5months old when we attended our first TinyTalk baby sign language class and loved it.
She did her first ‘recognisable’ sign of *GET UP* when she was 9 months old and at 21months she reached 100 signs. Aged 3yrs, she knows over 300 signs (I've lost count!).

Signing really benefitted us as a whole family when Sadie was younger, using signs she could communicate when she was tired, wanted to go to bed, as well as communicating when she wanted a drink, an orange or a biscuit! Now she is older she regularly signs alongside speaking. It's fascinating to watch.

I was so passionate about baby signing and the advantages of it, that I decided to become a TinyTalk teacher when the opportunity arose.

TinyTalk is for ALL the family, and my mum and fiancé would often attend baby classes with myself and Sadie when they could.

Signing breaks down barriers, aids communication and prevents frustration, for both the child and parent/carers.

TinyTalk baby signing classes are suitable from birth to about 18 months.
Venue 'In-Person' classes are 60 minutes long, consisting of signing, songs (nursery rhymes and children’s songs, that you can then repeat at home) and sensory activities, all of which incorporate signing.

TinyTalk toddlers classes are suitable form about 18months/2yrs to 4years.
Classes are more physical and interactive to suit developing minds. They follow a format to help build toddlers' speech development, confidence and social skills using familiar TinyTalk action songs, stories and props. They will learn a wider range of BSL signs and concepts such as counting and colours through fun language games that make communicating fun.

All classes end with 30 mins of 'social time', refreshments and children can 'play' and mums can chat. Please be respectful of other peoples personal space. Masks may be worn by individuals during classes if they wish. (Should restrictions return then classes will be adapted)

Online classes are 60 minutes of singing and signing, including social chat and questions at the end. Classes are are live on Zoom streamed to Facebook.

(IMPORTANT: please check your junk/spam folder for any TinyTalk emails, as they seem to be sent there at times!)
