Sing and Sign was my first introduction to baby signing when I joined a class in Bath, England with my 9-month old son back in 2011. Little did I know what an amazing journey we were about to embark on! We loved the classes, the music and the songs, but it wasn’t until my son signed back to me at 11 months that I realised the value of what we’d been learning. The look of pure joy on his face the first time he truly communicated something to us was unforgettable! Because he could “talk” to us with his signs, we were given a unique insight into his growing understanding of the world around him, and by the time his spoken language took form we felt that we had already had meaningful 'conversations' with him for more than a year. Naturally, we signed with our second child as well and enjoyed it just as much.
About Sing and Sign Copenhagen….
Sing and Sign is Britain's most loved and award winning baby signing programme and has been going strong for 18 years in UK. In 2017 I ran my first Sing and Sign class in Copenhagen, and since then I’ve been fortunate enough to meet many wonderful, international parents and babies in my classes. Sing and Sign teaches all the key signs you need in your day to day life with your baby through songs and music, and the weekly sessions are a great way for parents/guardians to enjoy some social time with their babies while learning something very valuable at the same time.
I feel very privileged to get the chance to share my passion for the amazing world of baby signing with other parents and can only say: Welcome and Enjoy!
What classes are available?
for babies from around 1 months to around 6 months old.
***SUMMER 2021 - PLEASE NOTE***
You can choose between a live class or online sessions.
The Babes programme works well online as our main focus is your connection with your baby. You can therefore easily follow the class from home. Joining the class online will also give your partner the opportunity to join in, and you don't have to stress about nap times, transport etc.
A lovely gentle class for the youngest age group aiming to build the foundations for good communication and connection between parent and baby. The class is relaxed, gives you lots of time face to face with your little one, plenty of cuddly time and is the perfect place to begin your baby signing journey. Each session lasts around 30 minutes + optional social time afterwards.
for babies from around 6 months to 13 months.
***Dates for August 2021 TBC***
Covering lots of different themes relating to your baby's 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. Each session lasts around 40-50 minutes. This includes the singing / signing session + time for chats, questions etc.
for babies 14 months+ - ONLINE COURSE ONLY
This online class covers themes such as colours, phonics, manners, even using the potty! It is recommended that you and your baby complete at least one term of Stage 1 before signing up for Stage 2. Each online lesson lasts around 30 minutes.
When and where?
Each course lasts 10 weeks (5 weeks for Babes) with new classes usually beginning in January, March/April, August and October.
Classes currently run on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in Vesterbro, Amager and Frederiksberg.
Each 10-week term costs 890kr per family; 425kr for Babes. Stage 1 includes access to our online platform "The Jessie Cat Club". You'll be able to follow up on our classes at home with lesson theme reminders, tips and clips of babies using the signs to support your class experience.
What should I expect?
Sing and Sign classes cover all the basic signs you need in your day-to-day life with your baby. The signs are taught through songs, rhymes and music, but also toys, props and pictures are used to inspire your baby's interest and illustrate the signs. Classes are relaxed and meant to be good fun for everyone. I keep the classes small (maximum 10 babies) so that both you and your baby can feel safe and enjoy the social aspect. Each session follows the same format and structure, and babies enjoy the routine and soon become familiar with the different parts of the session.
We know babies don't like to stay still so we don't expect them to! They are free to crawl/toddle around the room....they will enjoy the music even if they are under the table or making friends with each other.
Great for multilingual families!
Baby signing is a very helpful tool for multilingual families! The sign stays the same regardless of which language you speak with your baby, and in this way the signs act as a "bridge" between the two (or more) languages. They are a clear, visual way of showing your baby that two different words can have the same meaning, and in this gentle way you help your baby understand the languages more quickly.
What do some of the Sing and Sign parents say?
"Lesson after lesson I figured out that signing really belong to my way to communicate with my son; it keeps communication simple, immediate and easy to understand. I was very looking forward to see if my son could get some signs and now...he signs so much and so often!"
"My daughter and I had a lot of fun during the classes. She loved the music and after a few weeks she started to use the signs and tells us when she wants to eat. Every week we left the class with a great smile on our faces. Maya is a great teacher, she knows all the children and has a warm personality."
"My baby and I are having so much fun in sing and sign class. I have noticed a difference with my baby in just the few weeks in class. My son is more focused and listens better. Highly recommend this class. Maya is great! She is knowledgeable, flexible and intuitive."
