Babel Babies was founded in 2011 by Cate and Ruth, friends from university who share a love of travelling, talking and teaching. We were lucky enough to meet kindred spirit and fellow mum Dominique, who we were delighted to welcome to our team in 2013, and in 2015 we expanded to Manchester and Cheshire when Jeanie joined us.

When our children were born it was only natural for us to try and share our passion for languages with them too. We wanted to expose them to other languages in their early years as in theory this should make learning languages, including their own, easier as they get older.*

Having fun through singing and exploring other languages together is a great way to boost your confidence as an adult learner as well as giving your little ones a positive attitude towards languages ready for school.

We hope our children will grow up with the same curiosity about the world and other cultures that we have. So far they certainly love the singing and the multilingual books, and we hope you and your little ones will love them too.
