Hello, I’m Crystal and I’m the teacher of the Cheshunt, Broxbourne, and Hoddesdon areas.
I began with TinyTalk when my son, Martin, was 5 months old and it quickly became the highlight of the week for both Martin and myself. Martin is now four and still a big TinyTalk fan, and I have a new TinyTalker, Holly, who is only 10 months old.
At TinyTalk classes we sing songs, play musical instruments and end the hour with a bit of play time for the babies and socialising for the Mums with a cuppa and a biscuit. The signing comes naturally as a part of the singing and playing, so it is easy to practice at home.
As a first-time mother I was worried when Martin began to move off milk and onto food. How would I know when he was hungry or thirsty? At nine months Martin began to confidently sign the words “food” and “drink” so it was never an issue for us. Even with just a few signs, babies can tell us so much!
We later used signing to clarify spoken words. When 3 words all sound the same, it was a huge advantage to have sign language to clarify which of the words he meant.
If you would like to give TinyTalk a try at Kid Mania, please contact them via www.facebook.com/visitkidmania. We would love to see you!
Bizzy Bambinos are fun Italian classes for pre-school children from around 12 months onwards. Younger babies are also welcome and current research suggests that the earlier you start the better!
Classes run for approximately 40 minutes and include nursery rhymes, action songs, playing musical instruments, some musical movement and developing listening skills and finish off each class with a short story in Italian.
Bizzy Bambinos’ aim is to teach fundamentals of Italian vocabulary eg counting to 10, colours, body parts, animals etc using visual tools and direct instructions.
