" When my son Joel was 8 months old I started teaching him 3 signs which I learned from a book; Joel only picked up one of them. When Joel was 13 months, I heard about Bizzy Bee Signing courses and thought it might be more fun to learn in a group...."

The story of Bizzy Bee

Bizzy Bee specialises in the wellbeing, development and education of babies and young children. We offer courses in signing for hearing children, baby massage as well as yoga for children. We are an international company and work with independent teachers from all over the world who share our mission to make a lasting difference in young families’ lives.

What led to the foundation of Bizzy Bee?

After the birth of my first child, Tristan, in August 2008, I took a break from the business world, and decided to pursue a new path. Inspired by my new role as a mother, and keen to develop skills that would directly benefit my son, I developed a real interest in education and child development.

From avid reading, I quickly moved on to getting some real qualifications, and trained as a Montessori teacher for children from birth to three years of age. I also discovered the world of baby signing (and did extensive self-study), and qualified as a children’s yoga teacher.

Looking for a solution to the challenging question of work/life balance, and determined to put my newly gained knowledge and skills to use, the basic idea for Bizzy Bee came about in 2009. My husband, Geert, who was initially very sceptical of baby signing, was converted once he saw Tristan asking for his milk without crying at the age of just nine months. He soon saw the appeal and potential of Bizzy Bee and has since devoted a lot of time and energy to help make the Bizzy Bee dream become reality. And so, in addition to offering courses locally, we also offer a meaningful business opportunity to those who are also looking for a solution to the work/life balance question and who relish the prospect of helping children reach their full potential.

As we strive to deliver quality courses to our customers and quality training to our Bizzy Bee Teachers, we decided to team up with specialists for Bizzy Bee Massage and Bizzy Bee Yoga. We are delighted to have Sylvie Bianchi as Director of Bizzy Bee Massage and Cristin Tighe as Director of Bizzy Bee Yoga. And as I have always been passionate about communication, I have taken on the role of Director of Bizzy Bee Signing.
