Here in the Greater Shantallow Area Partnership Talking To Our Babies offers a wide variety of free courses and information sessions. We choose the courses to run based on what you would like, what you think would help you to help your baby or child achieve, be happy and be safe. Our most popular courses and information sessions, usually held on different dates between September - February, and we will be holding these again are;

'Let's Talk To Baby' (for those with / caring for babies 0 - 18 months). Essential to help you help your baby become a talking toddler. With free rhyme sheets etc and a Babbling Baby pack!

'Let's To Our Toddler & Pre-School Child' (for those with / caring for children aged 18 months - 3.5 years). Essential to help your child learn to communicate with confidence. With free book sheet, talking tips etc and a 'Ready Steady Talk Pack and book!


'Six Week Language Course' (for those who want to learn a little bit more about how language develops, consider how to help a child who is struggling or may be considering or working with babies and young children. With accreditation and free course book too. 


'Every Day First Aid' (and Dad's Only First Aid too!); no reading, writing or exam just exactly what to do in an emergency.

'Child Protection With The NSPCC' covering keeping children safe on line, how to talk 'PANTS' with your child and how to be a little bit more aware.


Some of our sessions are just for two hours, some for two hours a week for six weeks but most are in the evening. However if we have enough parents / carers / family members who would like to attend a particular course we are happy to offer creche facilities and run a session in the morning too! If you'd like to pop your name down to attend a course or session or simply have a question just send us a message or give us a call - hope to hear from you soon!
