Hello and welcome to the website for the very first TinyTalk classes in Switzerland!
I’m Kate, and I’m thrilled to have been the first teacher to offer TinyTalk Baby Signing and Toddler Talking in Switzerland from January 2017 to December 2020!
From January 2021 I'm starting an exciting new role at a local international school, which means there will be a pause in Silver Coast Baby Signing and Toddler Talking classes, and my wonderful
franchise is looking for a motivated new owner!
Perhaps you know someone who is looking for a new challenge, and would like to run their own business?
Being a TinyTalk baby signing teacher not only includes your baby if you want it to, it is also very social, worthwhile, rewarding and lots of fun! If you are looking for a job that has flexible hours that fits in with family life and term time then maybe it is for you?
TinyTalk look for drive, warmth and a good singing voice, plus you need to be lively, organised and self confident. Do get in touch to find out more!
My colleagues continue to run their classes on the Zürich Gold Coast (www.tinytalk.ch/gabrielab) and in Geneva (www.tinytalk.ch/alenkaz)
We take our responsibilities to our little TinyTalkers & their families very seriously, as well as looking after our own families at home, and of course the wider community too. We are currently running small in-person classes as per the BAG guidelines, with a maximum of 10 participants (including babies and children), socially distancing, masks for adults, and windows open to keep a flow of air through the room. (feel free to bring hat and extra layer for both you and your little one in case it gets chilly!)
There is always the option to join our usual fabulous, educational and interactive classes online instead. So grab your little one, their siblings, your partner and pet - anyone who shares your household - and join the fun!
Get in touch for details on how to join an online class.
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 Todd
Children:Ella is 19, Lukas is 16
Location:The Silver Coast along Lake Zürich
Favourite Sign:Fantastic! Such a positive sign, which describes how we feel about TinyTalk!
Favourite Film:I love a documentary!
Pet Hate:Cold feet
Secret Passion:Walking the dog in the snow (warm socks essential - see above)
I love baby signing because:It works! Parents and babies can communicate before baby can speak. How amazing is that?
