I've tried all the baby classes going but Tinytalk was the only one where I felt I'd found my tribe! Deb makes the hour long class feel relaxed and fun, and we learn a handful of different signs each week through familiar songs to practice at home. And the baby signing does actually work. I've done the class with both of my children from 6 weeks old, my now 3 year old (who is quite advanced in communication for his age, which I put down to baby signing) can sign and understand the signs that my 1 year old does. My youngest can tell me when she wants milk, water, a book, sees a certain animal, wants a bath etc. As a bonus it is fantastic for when grandparents have looked after them as they can ask for things/point out things that the grandparents otherwise wouldn't have a clue what they wanted and would have ended in tantrums had it not been for a few easy hand signs. Overall Tinytalk class is my favourite day of the week, my happy place and gives me something to wash my hair for!
Such a great activity to do with your little one! There have been a number of occasions that I wonder what parents who haven't done baby sign with their babies do! My daughter has used signs to express her needs and interests since she was about 8 months old. It has been beyond valuable to have a glimpse as to what is going on in her world. Deb is truly great with the children, engaging them in learning through play and song. This is one of my daughter's favourite weekly activities that we do.
Lovely welcoming group that gains such amazing confidence for little people. Time to learn and chat with follow mummies to.
