Talking Tots, the UK’s leading provider of communication classes for toddlers, has announced the launch of new classes in Horsham from August.

Talking Tots is a unique activity group for pre-schoolers that uses games, rhymes and interactive activities to help build social confidence and communication.

The classes are lots of fun and encourage toddlers to develop important skills that will give them a head start in the classroom.

“Our sessions are so much fun, children won’t even realise they’re learning,” says Talking Tots class leader Jeanette Harwood. “They’re playing and making friends, but at the same time they’re learning to listen, take turns and work as part of a group.”

Classes will run on Sundays, and are open to children from 12 months to four years of age. Classes do fill up fast, so parents are urged to contact Jeanette at Talking Tots to join in the fun!

Talking Tots was founded in 2005 by Tracey Park and Lisa Houghton, both experienced paediatric speech and language therapists.

Tracey and Lisa realised that many children were not reaching their full potential because they lacked vital communication skills.

The two women worked closely with a team of speech and language therapists, teachers and educational psychologists to develop a series of age-appropriate classes that would boost these skills.

The first Talking Tots classes were a phenomenal success, and there are now lots of Talking Tots groups nationwide. In 2008 the company won the ‘Best Innovation’ award in the What’s on 4 Little Ones Awards, and has since gone on to win many more awards.
