Oh Happy Babies

Our dedicated baby class, Oh Happy Babies, features a very special baby sign programme unique to Oh Happy Sign including sensory play - helping baby reach their milestones!  We teach your baby their first signs to be able to communicate their needs before speech. Classes are relaxing yet fun for you both. We have a comfortable mat for each baby to enjoy classes, and classes are small for a personal touch. Baby change facilities are onsite, and if baby needs a feed in class you are welcome to do this at anytime. Movers and crawlers are welcome in class up to age 16 months.

Our Baby Signers classes are suitable for your baby aged from 6 weeks old - exploring first words.

Oh Happy Littles

Now your little one is exploring their first words and learning to talk, our fun and exciting Oh Happy Littles classes are perfect for your toddler! Oh Happy Littles classes help build your little one's language skills to give them the best head start before they start school! We have lots of fun with communication activities, sounds, music, play, props and early phonics building on their first words and the world around them. Classes are specially designed to help with listening, understanding and social skills. Toddler sign helps your little one with talking and builds their confidence.

Our Little Signers classes are suitable for little ones now learning to talk or aged 16m+ (whichever comes first).
