Creation Station

At The Creation Station we love exploring new materials, getting messy and creating beautiful keepsakes and artwork with your little ones. Does this sound like fun? Then get yourself booked onto one of our award winning sessions!

In my Creation Station class your child will be able to develop at their own pace because all the experiences are part of  our educational programme, which is underpinned by the government Early Years Foundation Stage. This means that we will help your child nurture their natural curiosity so they create their own journey of learning and creativity. This is a wonderful way to help your baby or pre-schooler understand their world and develop their love of learning, confidence and  self-esteem. We have some fab sessions and each week we discover and explore something new, ensuring that every child’s creativity is nurtured and their imagination inspired!

Tiny Talk

Baby signing is a way to help your baby communicate with you from an early age. Signing will help to increase your little ones understanding of the world as well helping them to start to tell you what they need. Babies often start to sign between 6-9 months but it some babies have been known to sign from as early as 16 weeks. This means that frustration though lack of communication can be greatly reduced.
Not only does signing give your baby the chance to tell you what they need but it can also give them the opportunity to tell you about the world around them which gives you a wonderful insight into their thoughts.As words as always said at the same time as the signs, baby signing helps to encourage language development and understanding.
A review by one local mum:
We first joined Tiny Talk when my daughter was around 17 months. She had few words & …I feared speech delays were a possibility. My daughter loved Emma’s first class, instantly picked up signing & became an excellent communicator. She’s now a right little chatterbox. We love our weekly Tiny Talk class, learning signs, singing, parachute & music time & of course the play & choice biscuits at the end. We’ve made some lovely friends too & Emma is a truly wonderful teacher.
