I started signing with my twin baby girls when they were nine months old & enjoyed five terms with them. When they started classes they were shy and sat on my lap, but by the end of the five terms they were confident little girls, sharing with others, singing and talking, and more often than not signing along with the teacher.
When they were younger they were able to tell me if they wanted “more” or had “enough” of something. These were all so helpful, especially in the early days when their speech was still developing.
One of my favourite things when they were small was reading a book together. As soon as we opened the book they would sign to me what they were seeing without any prompting, friends and family would be amazed and would often enjoy joining in too.
Maisie and Lia are now Three years old and have a huge vocabulary, although they still like to use some signs to emphasise how they are feeling. Often signing that they are “sad” or think something is “funny” or even if they are in “pain”.
As a trained actress, singer and dancer, I’m looking forward to using these skills and now my wealth of baby signing knowledge to teach other babies, toddlers and parents the joys and fun of baby signing.
I hope you join us in class and start enjoying the results for yourself.
I first started Sing & Sign with my baby, Joe, when he was 6 months old in April 2010. Going to the classes helped us to get through a really difficult time, following an accident I had when Joe was 10 weeks old, which meant that I couldn't care for him properly and this caused severe depression. In addition to all the other benefits of signing to my baby, I felt elated in the classes and the fact that I could practice what we'd learned at home, each day, really helped to strengthen our bond and gave me something to focus on. Sing & Sign played a key role in pulling us through such a challenging time. We really enjoyed the DVDs and books (and still do). I remember the first time Joe signed. It was at breakfast. He wouldn't eat, which was unusual. As a new mum, I didn't realise he was teething and couldn't bear to eat. He signed milk. His Daddy, who had always been sceptical about signing and thought I was nuts by doing it all the time, noticed first. We looked on in disbelief, as Joe clearly signed to us that he wanted milk. We gave him milk and two bottles later he was very pleased with himself! He didn't sign much for the first couple of terms, but one day (after a tummy bug & 5 days of refusing to eat), I looked at him in despair. He signed 'biscuit!' I will never forget the delight on his face when he realised that I understood him. From then on, he signed a lot, 'reading' books to me, telling me about the dogs in the park and much more! Joe started talking very early on and is a very advanced talker for his age. I believe signing raised his I.Q and Joe has been advanced into nursery before his pre-school peers. Aside from Sing & sign, I am a Life Coach, Reiki Master, Feng Shui Consultant & trained Actress.

SING AND SIGN IN LOCAL NURSERIES!Does your child attend a nursery?
Sing and Sign now has an excellent Nursery Affiliation Programme which will train staff on their own premises at a time to suit all. We will teach staff a selection of signs, tailor made to the nursery's individual requirements and design an Individual Action Plan to inspire staff and make signing fun and easy to incorporate. Following training, the nursery will receive a Certificate of Sing and Sign Affiliation together with ongoing access to our signing resources and a complimentary package of products.
If your baby attends nursery or you know of a childcare facility that would be interested in receiving further information, please do pass our details on, or contact us at the number/email above.Lynsey & ElleSing and SignBarnet, Whetstone, Southgate, Enfield & Potters Bar07582 900418
