I'm so glad to welcome back Talk First Fylde as my blog sponsor for this month!
Joyce sponsored My Cava Lifestyle back in April and I wrote This Post about going to her Baby Signing classes. I didn't actually report back because I was too busy actually at the classes and doing general mum things, so here's the feedback report (finally!)
The class I attend is at Lytham Childrens Centre and has recently split into two classes due to the popularity of the sessions.
Sessions start with a Dexter sing along then we get down to the business of learning 8 new signs with our babies (or toddlers, or indeed in the case of inset days - 6 year old!). We then practice the signs and go onto use them in rhymes and songs.
My 10 month old absolutely loves the class. Dexter the Jester is a colourful character who high fives with real hands and has a very grabbable jingly hat. The singing and musical instrument elements go down well with all the children and Joyce keeps the class lively with finger puppets and a bit of mum dancing.
It's a lovely session and ideal for those who will return to work after maternity leave as it is a class that can be enjoyed with very young babies (we've been since 4 months!)
