Welcome to the TinyTalk classes of
Kate Kaufmann

Hello and welcome to the website for the very first TinyTalk classes in Switzerland!

I’m Kate, and I’m thrilled to be offering TinyTalk for the first time ever ‘in der Schweiz’.

What is baby signing?
Well, most parents already naturally sign with their babies - just think how delighted we are when baby can ‘wave goodbye to Grandma’ or ‘blow Daddy a kiss’ or even give themselves a clap when they’ve done something amazing!
Now imagine taking these everyday signs a step further, so your baby will be so excited to tell you that they are hungry, want their milk, or need a nappy change, or share their excitement when they see a dog or an airplane! What an fantastic experience for both parents and baby!

Early communication is so important in strengthening the bond between baby and all the people who love them - get siblings, grandparents and other caretakers involved in baby signing, and everybody can join in the conversation at the dinner table!

MULTILINGUAL FAMILIES will of course also benefit. Baby learns that Mummy’s ‘cat’ and Daddy’s ‘Katze’ share the same sign, and therefore that both words have the same meaning.

TINYTALK BABY SIGNING CLASSES:
TinyTalk classes are an hour long and are great fun! We use classic nursery rhymes such as The Wheels on the Bus, integrating the baby signs in a fun way. Each week we introduce core signs that are relevant to the family and home – such as mummy, daddy, food and milk, which can ease the frustration of communication difficulties before your baby can speak. We also develop their communication and sensory skills through Sensory Activities that involve bubbles, voile scarves, tactile rubber shapes and much more!

TINYTALK TODDLER TALKING CLASSES:
Our fantastic fun Toddler Talk classes focus much more on developing early speech. The classes are for walking children age 18 months up to around four years, and are lively, stimulating and sometimes a bit noisy! With songs, rhymes, stories and imaginative play we cover all the topics that toddlers love. We still use sign to support growing vocabularies, but it is not necessary to have done the baby signing classes to enjoy the Toddler classes.
