Rhythm Time 6 Week Young Baby Courses
If you have a newborn baby under 6 months, this is a fabulous course created specifically to enhance their early development.
In their first few months, your baby's main neural pathways are formed in their brain. So this is the perfect time to help stimulate all their senses with our fun, multi-sensory sessions. In this music-based course, we'll show you lots of special bonding and development activities that both you and your young baby will love.
During the 6 week course, these 30-minute classes will help to stimulate baby's vision and hearing, promote deeper sleep, improve muscle tone, flexibility and circulation, introduce them to 'tummy time', plus LOTS more.

Babies can communicate with you before they can talk and I see this first hand since introducing my daughter to signing when she was 4.5 months old.
TinyTalk baby signing classes are suitable from birth to about 18 months. Each class is 60 minutes long. 30 minutes of baby signing, some sensory activities and songs all incorporating signing. Followed by 30 minutes of social time for both babies and parents. Toys for the children to play with and a much deserved natter, cuppa and biscuits for the adults.
Signing breaks down barriers, aids communication and prevents frustration, for both babies and children as well as parent and carers.
At TinyTalk we use signs from BSL (British Sign Language) in our classes. We introduce key core signs for everyday use, that you can incorporate into your daily routine.
Classes running at:
360 Play Town, Kingfisher Centre, Redditch B97 4EU

Finstall Village Hall Bromsgrove on Friday mornings at 11am.

Evesham, Droitwich & Worcester North
Baby signing is a fantastic way to develop communication between you and your baby as babies have control over their hand co ordination a long time before their verbal skills develop. No longer do you need to need to interpret cries or guess what your baby needs, they can tell you themselves! Once you have taught your baby to 'talk' you'll find they have plenty to say!
Signing babies are happy babies as it eases frustrations between parent and baby by developing understanding. Baby signing strengthens the bond between parent and their child and lets you engage in real 'conversations'. So let’s find out what your baby would like to say to you!
Classes are available:
Mondays: Cropthorne & Charlton Village Hall, Pershore, WR10 3NH
Wednesdays: Droitwich Methodist Church Centre, Worcester Rd, WR9 8AN
Thursdays: Lyppard Hub, Worcester, WR4 0DZ
