Hi, my name's Jen Cadger and I love running Talking Tots in Edinburgh!
After 10 years working in Marketing and having my own wee boy in 2009, I was keen to start my own business that could work around my family life.
I've always had a passion for good communication, from loving books and reading as a child to writing marketing communications and presenting to large corporates as an adult.
Communication really is a skill for life and so important to encourage from the early years.
The Talking Tots programme was developed by experienced paediatric speech and language therapists and encourages good listening, attention and turn-taking. We introduce pre-literacy skills including rhyming, building vocabulary and sound recognition. We have great fun in small, friendly, relaxed groups - working with under fives there's never a dull moment!
In 2013, Lauren Bick joined us and helps run classes in Stockbridge on Monday mornings.
If you'd like more details about classes, nursery sessions or parties, please contact Jen Cadger on 07803 820 677 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Our next term starts Monday 12 January 2015 due to maternity leave.
Watch this space for more details coming soon!

Very enjoyable! A bright, friendly class - my 1 and 3 year old come together and both get something from it!

Talking Tots with Jen is a brilliant class. It's fun, friendly and educational. Emma looks forward to it every week!

My two year old son Zach is naturally reserved and so the small, friendly, relaxed classes have been great at helping him to gain confidence and participate more actively in class.

My daughter and I have attended classes since Jen commenced her first term in April 2012. Each session has a similar structure which allows my daughter to get used to each activity. She loves the 'Ready, Steady, Go' game and 'Totsy's Ball'. Her speech has come on amazingly well. Jen is very friendly and my daughter is happy with Jen too. Fantastic class would recommend to anyone.
