WELCOME! to Little Signers Club. Quite simply, communication is our passion; Little Signers Club makes a real and lasting difference to thousands of pre-verbal children, and their parents, every year. We provide leading, expertly taught baby and toddler signing classes for you to attend.
You may have come across baby signing before, or you might be trying to find out more about it. In brief, it is the use of gesture (or sign), in conjunction with speech, to enable young children to be able to communicate what they may need or want, to their parents and other carers, before speech begins. The results are incredible - calm, confident children who generally have better language acquisition at an earlier age. The use of signing encourages peaceful interactions without little ones having to resort to tears or tantrums in order to get what they need, be that something to eat or a cuddle.
Over the eight years I have been teaching, I've met with many parents and children who have benefited from using signing - their stories and continuing enthusiasm are inspiring. Its such a simple technique and, when delivered through a fun learning environment like our baby or toddler signing classes, kick starts a communication process that will still provide untold benefits even years later. My greatest joy is to switch others onto the wonderful benefits of signing and how it can support your parenting journey or indeed, how to maximise calm interactions as a professional working in Early Years
Whilst it’s not quite possible to say that signing is a magic cure all, the use of signing is an incredible preventative, putting a stop to toddler frustration and upset very effectively. Signing makes the guesswork disappear and as an added benefit, everyone in your family is able to join in with the ‘conversation’. Best of all it can be put into place easily and quickly.
Little Signers Club is committed to delivering the very best signing classes that you can attend. Our courses are delivered by highly trained, expert baby signing teachers, many of whom have extensive Early Years experience. Our teachers are CRB checked for your peace of mind. For preference, we use British Sign Langauge but some of our teachers are also fluent in other sign systems too.
At the very least you will have a great deal of fun - but, with a little effort, we'll guarantee that you will gain a confident, more communicative child who can let you know what they need – and who doesn’t want that?"
