Welcome to Talking Tots Basingstoke And Surrounding Areas


My name is Debbie and I have been delivering Talking Tots classes to Basingstoke and surrounding areas for the last three years.

Prior to this I spent 16 years working in education, first as a Portage Home Visitor and then an Area Inclusion Co-ordinator supporting children with additional needs. I am also a Regional Makaton Tutor and deliver a variety of Makaton training. Talking Tots Basingstoke is a Makaton Friendly Establishment.

I am very passionate about the importance of being a good communicator. To be able to communicate confidently we need to have good concentration, listening and attention skills, social skills and high self esteem. 

Talking Tots classes provide the opportunity for your child to develop these skills in a fun and interactive way without any pressure. We all know children learn best when they are having fun! 

They are also a great opportunity for you to see how you can support your child's communication!

I have one Class Leader, Kelly who delivers our Early Years package into preschools and nurseries.


Look out for special offers! 

If you have any questions or would like to know more about any of the classes please contact me.
