incredible insight into your baby’s thoughts. They can sign what they are thinking, needing or
feeling. We use British Sign Language based signs to give babies a tool to express themselves

TinyTalk classes are fun & relaxed. The first 1/2 hour is where we learn signs through singing
nursery rhymes and action songs, and promote communication skills with sensory equipment;
voile scarves, lycra, bubbles, mirrors and tactile sensory shapes. We use instruments and have
signed stories in a relaxed friendly group while learning new signs each week. The second 1/2
hour is a social time with toys & refreshments provided.
Our baby signing classes are suitable from birth – 2yo (though from 18 months onwards the little
ones may be ready for our toddler classes).
Toddler classes have physical activities such as parachute songs and more advanced language
activities and are focused on signs to support confident speech. Both classes contain social time
for you and the children to make friends, play with toys, and have refreshments.
Each term (usually 12 weeks) we teach 150 core signs with a different class topic each week.
The signs are repeated regularly which is so important for the babies. You can start the classes
at any time; you don’t have to wait for the beginning of a new term.
Our classes are developed in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
Siblings close in age or twins attend free of charge.
