Welcome! I'm Charlotte!

With 11 years Sign Language and Makaton experience, Oh Happy Sign’s Group Teacher, Charlotte, is qualified in British Sign Language and has a degree in English Language and Linguistics. Charlotte is passionate about teaching sign with speech and fun activities to encourage babies to babble to sparking the imaginations of toddlers when learning to talk.

Welcome! Oh Happy Sign is family run and proud to be in Darwen, Lancashire. Classes are on Mondays in Darwen and Saturdays in Accrington.

Charlotte has 2 wonderful children: 4 & 2 years old - their development and communication have blossomed with sign! "I taught both my boys to sign from 6 weeks old and their abilities to communicate so young is truly wonderful, and so I believe that all families should experience the same - so Oh Happy Sign was born!"

Charlotte believes signing is for everyone! Children love to express themselves through sign what ever their ability or development stage. 

Groups are always welcoming and relaxed, and absolutely no sign experience is required. Baby and toddler sign is easy to learn and lots of fun. Your time together is precious - come along and create special memories together at Oh Happy Sign!
