Sing and Sign baby signing classes in... Malvern, Ledbury & Worcester
Malvern, Worcester and Ledbury
Welcome to the home page for Malvern, Worcester and Ledbury, baby signing the fun way in the heart of England.
My name is Liz, I have been teaching Sing and Sign since 2006 and I love it! I began signing with my youngest daughter when she was 6 months old, it was wonderful and within a few weeks she was able to sign that she wanted her milk. Soon she could sign that she wanted more, that she needed her nappy changed or she wanted a bath. My baby used lots of animal signs and really enjoyed reading books with her daddy and signing what the animals were. The first time she signed 'goodnight' to me I cried. We didn't experience any of the usual tantrums of two year olds'; baby signing really helped her communication skills.
I love teaching Sing and Sign, it is great knowing that I am helping other parents to experience the joy of having their little ones communicate with them from an early age, it is wonderful how much they learn and how much they have to say. We have lots of fun in class and I look forward to seeing the babies each week to find out what they have been telling their families.
You can contact me by phone 07902 957181 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the enquiry form below, I look forward to hearing from you soon!

About the classes:
Classes are very relaxed and good fun! We keep class sizes small (around 11 per class) so you and your baby can enjoy the social aspect of class.
How long is each class?
Classes run for an hour - we sing and sign for approximately 40 mins, with time at the end for me to answer any questions and for you to enjoy a chat over a free tea or coffee (venue facilities permitting).
During the class:
We learn all the signs through our easy to learn action-songs, we team these with pictures, props and instruments to keep your baby engaged throughout. Don't worry if you think you can't sing... you don't have to!
We know babies don't like to stay still so we don't expect them to! They are welcome to roam around the room if they want to - they will still be learning (you'd be surprised how much they pick up whilst wandering!). When Jessie Cat, instruments or the toy bag appear they soon come back!
Which class is right for me?
As a general rule,
Sing and Sign Babes is suitable for babies up to 6 months who aren't on the move yet.
Stage 1 classes are great for babies aged from 6/7 months upwards.
Stage 2 classes are most appropriate for babies who have attended at least one term of stage 1, and who will be around 14 months+ at the start of term (exceptions apply, please contact me if you are unsure!).
I have twins - do I have to pay twice?
If you have more than one baby you do not have to pay twice. I can also accommodate childminders. Please contact me for more details.
What is the cost?
Stage 1 and 2 cost £60 for a 10 week block. Sing and sign babes costs £30 for a 5 week block. My classes fill up very quickly so booking well before the start of term is essential to get a place in the class that you prefer. We can take payment by PAYPAL or by using a bank card.
Can't make it to classes?
Most parents who attend classes like to join The Jessie Cat Club - the Sing and Sign online membership. This is a great way to learn to sign at home! Use Sing and Sign online on a variety of devices, play fun games with you and your baby and enjoy exclusive online content. A Sing and Sign DVD and other products are available to buy in class or online and will really enhance your learning at home.
