Hello, I’m Kathryn and I am Little Hands Baby Sign!
Back in 2015, I was coming to the end of my maternity leave for my first child and knew that returning to my old job was not practical. I had ten years’ experience of working in the deaf community, and I wanted something that used my British Sign Language skills but also gave me an opportunity to be closer to home.
So Little Hands Baby Sign was created, and we started with just one class in Brentford. Fast forward to 2020, and I’m now teaching four classes around the area and recently started teaching in nurseries. We also welcomed our daughter and so it’s been a busy few years!
I’m a parent, just like you and my aim for Little Hands is simple; to spread the word about brilliant baby sign while offering a warm and welcoming class for parents and babies. To create a space to make friends, learn something new, entertain baby and share the small wins, the tough days with a hot cuppa and chat.
Before our family, I worked within the deaf community for nearly 10 years. I have met and worked with a range of professional deaf adults and amazing deaf children. I learnt British Sign Language (BSL) over several years and I am very proud to say that I gained my Level 6 NVQ in British Sign Language in 2010. This means I have the equivalent to a degree in BSL.

See you soon,
