Baby Signing and Toddler Talking classes - because children have so much to say!
TinyTalk Baby Signing classes are 1 hour long, with the same structure every week to help your little TinyTalker feel secure. With your baby, you'll get to
-sing favourite nursery rhymes
-march around to our walkabout songs (Bear Hunt is my favourite!)
-take part in sensory activities, using sensory shapes, flashing balls and reading books
-learn around 5 core signs every week
TinyTalk is for toddlers too. Our quality classes continue to develop your child's communication skills whilst you're having a brilliant time together. It's the TinyTalk you love, but more physical and interactive to suit developing minds. Toddlers are not meant to sit still, but they'll love:
- building toddlers' speech development, confidence and social skills
- familiar TinyTalk action songs, stories and puppets your child loves
- learning a wider range of BSL signs and concepts such as counting and colours
- playing language games and make communicating fun
In the second half of our sessions, the babies and toddlers have a chance to play with a wide range of toys, and the grown ups can get a hot drink - this was my only opportunity to drink a whole cup of coffee with a small baby! Many parents say that this is their favourite part of the week - and there are chocolate biscuits too.
You'll be able to take home a small handout to remind you of the core signs, as we all know what a lack of sleep does to the memory!
