Parent and child sessions

Little Puffin Signing sessions are designed and run by qualified speech and language therapist Steph. Classes focus on a different topic each week using books, songs and sensory activities to demonstrate and practise the signs. The sessions are relaxed and informal; everyone learns better when they’re having fun!

There are three terms during the year, with 9 sessions per term covering all of the signs you need.

PUFFLINGS
Designed for babies aged 0 – moving (approx. 12 months). You will learn the signs for first words and daily routines e.g. milk, sleep, bath, as well as signs to songs and books. There will also be information and tips on natural communication development specific to the littlest pufflings.

LITTLE PUFFINS
These sessions are designed for children aged 1-3 years. You and your little one will learn lots of signs for their favourite things. Sensory activities are a big part of little puffin sessions, with a tray full of exciting things to explore linked with the topic of the week.

FLEDGLINGS
These sessions are designed for children in their final pre-school year and reception (inclusive). The aim of these sessions is to support your growing puffin’s literacy skills, with absolutely no reading or writing involved! Foundation skills your little one will learn during this class are: attention, listening, turn taking, a whole host of phonological awareness skills which are crucial for literacy development and of course, signs!
