Little Signers Club; Somersetbabysigning classes with Louise for tinies, toddlers and talkers
Hello! My name is Louise and I am your baby signing teacher for Somerset, Dorset and Devon and I work in the areas of Crewkerne, Axminster, Yeovil and Bridport. This may sound like a lot of travelling but I live in Somerset right on the border of Devon and Dorset!
I qualified as a secondary teacher back in 2009 and went on to teacher in various schools in the area but in 2012 I took a part time post in a primary school where as fate would have it I learnt to communicate using signing. Signing in the classroom was a revelation by just using a few basic signs it seemed that behaviour improved, children became more attentive because they were having to use their eyes to look to see what I was saying and the age old question ‘please can I go to toilet miss’ could be quietly signed and not shouted across the classroom!
When my youngest daughter was born last year, my passion for signing was reignited, and here I am, hoping for the chance to introduce you to this simple, fun and wonderfully effective

A Very Positive Experience
Baby signing classes have been a very positive experience for us in aiding communication and reducing frustration as Isla can tell us what she wants and needs.
It has also been a lovely bonding experience.
I would highly recommend Little Signers Club signing classes.
Ella hasn’t been very well this morning, we came into the kitchen and she was shaking her hand.
At first I thought she was telling me that the axle was broken on her little pink tractor but then realised she was signing for drink!!!
So exciting – her first sign!!!
Thank you for the wonderful classes
Such a Useful Parenting Tool
My daughter certainly understands what I’m signing to her.
I find it so useful as a tool to explaining what we are about to do with my toddler e.g. Nappy change or time to go in the car.
We sing What Shall We Wear Today and it makes getting dressed so much easier! We find storytime is more entertaining as we read books that we know signs for.
