When we joined our first Stage 1 Sing and Sign class in 2011, I had no idea how important baby signing would become for us. My son who was 8 months old at the time, loved the music and the social feel to the classes and I learned loads of new songs and signs. Classes were fun but it wasn't until my son was around 13 months old and began signing back to me that I realised the true value of what we had been learning. It was so wonderful being able to have little conversations with him and of course there were huge practical benefits too as we were all able to make ourselves better understood.
I love teaching baby signing and being able to share my passion for Sing and Sign with new families in Edinburgh. I am very lucky to be a small part of such an exciting time in these families lives. I really hope you feel inspired to come along, find out more about Sing and Sign and try baby signing in your family.
About the classes in Edinburgh...
Sing and Sign classes follow a ten-week curriculum covering all the signs you need to know for day to day life with your baby or toddler. There are three different age-appropriate stages available - for more information on the different Stages and course costs see the "more info" tab above. Click the 'Book Now' button at the top right of the page to view timetable, to join a waiting list or book a space.
What classes are available?
for babies from 2 months to around 7 months old. – A lovely gentle class for the youngest age group aiming to build the foundations for good communication. The class is relaxed, gives you lots of time face to face with your wee one, plenty of cuddle time and is the perfect place to begin your baby signing journey
for babies from 6 months to around 18 months – Covering lots of different themes relating to your babies world, we use songs, rhymes, instruments, toys and props in a fun, relaxed class. Babies love the fun and the music while adults effortlessly learn all the signs they need for day-to-day life with their baby.
for toddlers from around 14 months to 2 years and beyond! – This class covers themes such as colours, phonics, manners, even using the potty! Designed with inquisitive and energetic toddlers in mind.
When and where?
The Sing and Sign programme follows a ten-week curriculum and I teach three terms throughout the year roughly following the school terms.
Spring term begins in January
Summer term begins late April
Autumn term begins early September
Classes are currently running on Mondays in Leith, Wednesdays in Marchmont, Thursdays in Portobello, Fridays in Marchmont and Saturdays in Stockbridge
Stage 1/Stage 2: Each 10-week term costs £68 per family
'Babes': These classes can be booked as a 10 week term for £52. These classes can be joined at any point throughout the term (subject to space). In this situation a shorter payment block will be arranged. Please contact email@example.com to arrange.
I limit the number of families per class to around 11 depending on the room. This keeps classes small, friendly and relaxed but it does mean places are limited so book early!
Send me an e-mail or give me a ring if you have any further questions or you'd like to be added to the waiting list for any future classes.
