BabyTalk is a 6 week course looking at early interactions and understanding about communication with your baby, allowing you and baby to learn together some key skills for life. It's suitable from 4 months to 12 months of age (at the start of the course) and each week focuses on a different key topic such as eye-contact, first words, copying and early sounds. From 4 months babies are interacting much more with their environments so it's the perfect time to make the most of this and engage with them in a positive way. For older babies who are becoming more mobile and wanting to explore, our course offers them a gentle introduction to participating more actively with games and communicating in different ways with others.
The classes are 1 hour long and involve a mix of interactive games and rhymes, play related to that week's topic, relaxed and informed discussion and heuristic (discovery) play. Our groups are small and friendly to encourage group conversation and we end each session with tea/coffee and biscuits. It is a very relaxed atmosphere so there is no need to worry if baby cries or needs to feed etc. Many of our Mums attending previous groups have enjoyed getting to know each other and sharing their baby’s development and have stayed in touch following our classes. We have had some fabulous feedback and lovely reviews!
'I did BabyTalk with Zoe with my 5 month old daughter and we had such a fun time. Zoe had a huge range of activities and we got some great ideas for things to do at home to promote communication skills. There was a really warm and friendly atmosphere in the class which meant the babies interacted well and it was good for mums too. Would definitely recommend it!'
'BabyTalk with Zoe was the most fun Finn has had at a baby group class. Lots of great materials and activities plus I learned loads of interesting stuff about his development too. Definitely worth trying with your little one!'
