Sing and Sign baby signing classes in... Ashford
Hi, My name is Juliete
Hi my name is Juliete. I have a wee boy called Charlie who is now 6 years old and Anabelle who is 4. Charlie and Anabelle both joined Sing and sign at the age of 3 months. I really enjoy singing, reading and doing actions to stories that we read together. Ever since Charlie was born i had always wanted to do something fun and useful with him and had heard of baby sign language, and so went in search of classes. I had my first amazing class with Claire in Belfast and even though Charlie was only three months at the time i could see he was really engaged in all the actions and singing within the class.
As Charlie got a bit older i noticed him firstly responding to some of the signs i was doing and would respond with either a smile or a frown. This meant the world that i was able to communicate with my baby at such a young age, even though he was unable to do the signs at the time it was clear i was understanding and communicating to his needs.
Since the first class i have been hooked, i have enjoyed every single session and always was excited for the next weeks activity. Then i realised i had found something that i really love doing and wanted to make this into a career.
As Charlie turned 11 months he used his first sign asking for his milk and since then he now points at things that interest him and does signs for the sounds of certain animals. This is a truely magical thing to experience and to see the delight on his face when i can respond as i understand what he is trying to tell me, this makes for a happy baby and happy mum.
Charlie's first few signs which included finished, duck, bird, bed, hungry, milk, dog, more, where and his favourite train.
Now Charlie has a varied vocabulary including animals, vehicles, colours. When he turned 3 he was still signing frequently to help little sister but also to help me with any words that aren't quite clear in his spoken vocabulary, and is extremely helpful with learning his colours and alphabet.
Anabelle started signing at 6 months she started with milk, change nappy, more and please. Then moved onto animals, open, where and is able to put signs together to create signing sentences meaning at a young age i was able to understand her and she was able to have a conversation with me from an early age.
The lessons are relaxed and fun and i want to help other babies and parents/guardians to be able to communicate together.
Look for forward to you joining me on this magical journey.
Hope to hear from you.

Does your child attend a nursery?
Sing and Sign 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.
