    My Sing and Sign story:

    I first met a signing baby when as a teacher a colleague's child came into school, aged 18 months and told me my tea was 'hot', amazing!  I have attended and taught in Sing and Sign classes in this area for most of the past 8 years, and truly believe that signing with your children is the most rewarding experience of early parenthood.  My two boys both signed extensively, they still show an interest in the signs I use when I'm with younger children and we still sing some of the songs! (bedtime most often!)

    Want to 'Try before you buy'?  If you can't make a FREE TASTER (or there are none planned) - please fill in an enquiry form, call me or drop me a message.

    If you are interested in finding out more about the way we have loads of fun while learning about signing with babies and toddlers, please contact me and I will do my best to help you find a class that suits you!

    A term is generally 10 weeks of classes over a 11/12/13 week period (Babes courses sometimes shorter):

    • Classes are relaxed and good fun. We keep the classes small so that both you and your baby can enjoy the social aspect
    • Classes are approx 1 hour long, which includes 10-15 minutes of social time for parents to chat and toys for the children to explore.
    • As a general rule, Babes is for pre-crawling babies who are under 6 months are the start of term.  Stage 1 is for babies approximately 5-7 months and under 14months at the start of term. Stage 2 is for those who have attended at least 2 terms of stage 1 or who will be 14+ months at the start of the term.
    • Jessie cat, the music and props will keep your baby entertained during the class, however they are welcome to roam about in class, as they will enjoy exploring and interacting with other babies whilst you learn the signs.
    • We learn the signs through easy to learn action songs.

    Sing and Sign Babes (youngest babies)These classes are for babies under 6 months (who are not yet crawling). The classes are a gentle introduction to a few basic signs, but the focus is on bonding with your baby. These classes have been designed to set the foundations for good communication skills, focusing on gesture, eye contact, facial expression, touch and attention. New families are welcome to join at any time, we recommend waiting until your little one is about 2months old to get the best out of these classes.

    Stage 1 (babies ages roughly 6-13months): The classes are great fun and ideal if you have little or no signing experience. The baby classes cover basic routines as well as signs to do with babies’ interests such as animals, vehicles, toys etc. Many families return for a second term of Stage 1 to allow the babies to become fully comfortable with our class routines.

    Stage 2 (toddlers roughly 14-24months):  Many families are by now experienced signers (both parents and children!), although your little one's development should lead the choice of class. These classes cover colours, the weather, simple counting and we even have a great song for potty training. Also you’ll be able to learn the phonetic alphabet.

    If your child is old enough to attend the Stage 2 toddler class but you haven’t done any signing please do get in touch with me as it is likely to be best your little one goes in at Stage 2 - I can advise how to get up to speed with your signing.

    TWINS/multiples: we offer buy one, get one free - MANY twins families have benefited from signing with their little ones!
