Find out what your baby wants to tell you by learning to sign with them at TinyTalk. TinyTalk classes are fun, relaxed and friendly. We spend the first half hour teaching 50 signs across the term, through singing and signing familiar nursery rhymes and songs; as well as engaging sensory activities, all chosen to help babies develop the key non-verbal skills needed for communication. Signs are selected to integrate into your day and your baby's world, focusing on topics such as bedtime, food, family and pets. The second half of the class is the time for the babies to explore new toys whilst you have the chance to have a hot drink and a biscuit whilst having an actual adult conversation, make new friends in your area and ask for help with any of the signs.
TinyTalk classes teach BSL, taking your baby's signing outside of the 'classroom' and into the real world. This makes it easier if you wish to continue signing at nursery or with friends and relatives in the deaf community.
Signing can help to reduce frustration and develop a closer bond with your baby. It's amazing when you realise that you understand each other and so rewarding to learn together.

I attended a trial class recently with my ten month old. I have to say I thought it was brilliant! Fun, interactive and engaging, using popular songs to entertain and sign to. Rebecca is a friendly and enthusiastic class leader who really made us feel welcome. What I particularly loved about this class was that not only was it as fun as other baby classes I've been to it also was really useful. At ten months old my baby is starting to use signs to communicate (waving, clapping etc) and this class teaches other really useful signs to help you to talk to your baby. We've already been using a few from the class like 'milk' and 'more' and she's started using them within a couple of weeks! It can be hard to know what your baby wants before they develop their language skills so this is absolutely brilliant. I just wish this class had been around for my older child too!
