Sarah is also a Monkey Music Teacher and Toddle Talk Baby and Infant Sign Language Instructor - teaching British sign language to babies and parents assisting with early communication and sound and speech development.

Description

Toddle Talk classes create an opportunity for you and your baby/toddler to spend some quality time together learning British Sign Language that you can use in your day to day communication, both before your baby can speak and throughout their entire speech journey.

Taught through songs, instruments, puppets, toys and stories, the classes are fun and engaging. Classes run for just under an hour with time included for chatting amongst the group.

Each class follows a theme and at the end of each session you will be given a handout with a description of all the signs taught so that you can practise them at home in your everyday lives.

Prices are per family, so if you have multiple children you will not be charged extra. Class numbers are capped at 5 so that we can ensure social distancing.

Toddle Talk Sensory & Sign classes allow you and your baby to spend quality time together enjoying singing, playing, socialising and learning British Sign Language signs that you can use in your day to day communication, both before your baby can speak and throughout their entire speech journey.

The Signs are taught through songs and nursery rhymes that contain the words we are learning that week, instruments, puppets, stories and sensory toys that excite, engage and stimulate the babies. The classes are fun and engaging, with sign language being taught as a tool to help cut down your baby's frustrations once they are able to begin signing back to you. Classes are really informal and run for an hour with time included for refreshments for the adults and playtime for the younger ones.

Baby signing can help to:
Encourage communication between parent and baby
Cut down your baby's frustrations of not being understood
Strengthen the parent and baby bond
Assist with developing sensory, social literacy and numeracy skills
Stimulate your baby's excitement to join in and copy/learn, understanding more about their world
Allows parents/carers to meet other parents and babies/toddlers and share experiences

Classes are currently on Thursday and Fridays at 10am and 11:30am and I encourage the younger babies to come at 11:30.

Classes are suitable for children up to 3 years old.

If you would like to book in for a free trial, please let me know which day and time you prefer if any.
