    _________________________________________________________________________

    Our classes are open to babies from birth, as soon as you feel you would like to get out with your baby and enjoy some music together while learning how to really make the most of early communication. We will offer a free workshop session, availability permitting.    We offer three types of class :

    Babes -  our pre-Stage 1 curriculum for the youngest babies (around 7 months towards the end of the course ) is a gentle music and sensory class with a strong emphasis on communication.

    Stage 1 - our core curriculum award-winning class for 6 - 13 months

    Stage 2 - continue the fun with your toddler 14 months plus, as speech develops

    The "Jessie Cat Club" Online Membership 

    Signing up for Stage 1 - Sing and Sign? Then you’ll automatically be given access to our online platform ‘The Jessie Cat Club'! 


    Everyone knows Sing and Sign classes are great fun, but we are also keen for your baby to benefit fully from our educational content which has been designed with the help of speech and language experts. You'll now be able to follow up at home with lesson theme reminders, tips and clips of babies using the signs. Not only that, but all the core songs and signs in teaching videos and a 200-word signing dictionary to support your class experience. Sing and Sign really is the best way to learn baby signing the fun way!

    * Special note from the founder of Sing and Sign!  Sing and Sign was devised and developed in Brighton, inspired by my own experience of signing with my baby daughter.  I taught my first ever class in Ascension Church Hall, Westdene one cold January morning in 2001, with just five mums and babies! I could not have imagined that twenty years on, S&S classes would cover the country and so many tens of thousands of babies would have benefited from the Sing and Sign approach, it has been amazing!

    My lovely teaching team of experienced Sing and Signers - Jemma, Liz, Stef and Rebecca offer Sing and Sign classes in venues all over the city. Although we run 20 classes per week  - we are usually fully booked for our core curriculum Stage 1 sessions.  Many parents have already discovered the benefits of signing with their baby, and our award winning classes are (as you may have gathered) filled very quickly.  (Please note for twins - one child goes FREE!)

    About our classes


    Classes are very relaxed and good fun! We keep class sizes small (around 8/9 per class due to Covid -secure measures at the moment) ) so you and your baby can enjoy an intimate environment and the social aspect of class.

    Classes run for an hour - we sing and sign for approximately 30-40 mins.

    There is free tea or coffee for parents (venue facilities permitting) 

    We have three age appropriate groups to offer. Babes classes are for babies who are not yet mobile (under 7mths), Our core curriculum Stage 1 classes are great for babies aged from 6mths upwards. Stage 2 classes are most appropriate for babies who have attended at least one term of Stage 1, and who will be around 13/14mths+ at the start of term (exceptions apply, please contact me if you are unsure!).

    You can now opt for @Home only, so just the streamed video, to your home for £50. A great option if you have to return to work or are not able to attend face to face classes at the moment.

    *January 2022* We are trying to limit as much interaction and will try to keep to our mats as much as possible. We have adapted our classes so there is less movement and limit the engagement with props. You will have to bring your own musical instrument/ scarf/ book and toy. 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 can still learn whilst wandering!) When Jessie Cat, instruments or the props bag appear they soon come back!

    At the end of our music session the toys come out! Your teacher is available to answer any questions that may not have already been answered in class. *January 2022* Please bring in your own  toy for your little one to enjoy as we are not sharing toys at this time.

    We learn all the signs through our easy to learn action-songs. Don't worry if you can't sing ... you don't have to! 

    Terms and Conditions: Cost for a term in 2020 is £75.50 for Babes or £85.50 for Stage 1 and Stage 2 classes. Stage 1 and Stage 2 classes include  one year's Online Membership. This can be renewed by you after the year has finished. Stage 1 and Stage 2 has Gold membership included. Your year's membership then runs from the first week of term. If you choose to upgrade to Premium via your teacher, your membership then runs for a year from that upgrade date. Due to limited numbers per class you will need to book and pay prior to term starting. (Early booking is advisable. We can take payment via cash (if you currently attend class and can take the £ in), Paypal or online. We can only refund class fees up to the end of the first week of term. If any classes are postponed for any reason we will offer alternative classes at another time. We will also switch to Zoom classes if Government guidelines mean we cannot teach in venues. We unfortunately cannot issue refunds for these classes as we are offering an alternative class.

    We hope you can join us!
