Sing and Sign baby signing classes in... East Northants
My Sing and Sign Journey
Hello! My name is Sarah, and I'd love to meet you in a Sing and Sign class.
I attended Sing and Sign classes with my 2 boys (now aged 11 and 7). We absolutely loved it! Both of the boys enjoyed the singing, instrument playing, and of course seeing Jessie Cat. But we also found it really useful as we learned our signs together. Dylan and Ryan were both able to express themselves and let us know what they needed and wanted long before they could talk. It was great to see Dylan recalling all of his signs once his brother started to sign, so that the 2 of them could communicate easily before Ryan could talk.
So, when the opportunity arose for me to become a Sing and Sign teacher, I jumped at the chance! I started teaching in September 2016, and I love it. It's fabulous to see all the little faces so excited when Jessie Cat pops out of the box. And when they find their hands and begin to sign, it's such a proud moment for everyone.
So, if you'd like to find out more about baby signing classes and the Sing and Sign approach, there's lots of information on this and the next few pages. Or you can fill in the form below to contact me.

For the Summer 2022 term, you can also learn from home with our award-winning Sing and Sign @ Home programme for Stage 1 and Stage 2 classes. Here are some details:
- 10 structured, 30 minute, age appropriate classes to enjoy over a 10 week period starting Monday 17th January. Each week covering a theme and gradually building your signing knowledge
- Sing and Sign @ Home is not 'live'. Meaning you can stream the class any time of the day, as many times as you like for a whole week
- Sing and Sign @ Home is something for you to DO with your child - not just a film to watch on screen. Get down on the living room floor and ENJOY quality time, music and fun together!
- You will be supported by my weekly newsletter on the theme and signs of the week, and also be invited to join live Zoom classes each Saturday morning where you can ask questions, get advice from me and connect with other parents
- Access will be through the Sing and Sign Website. You can watch on phone, laptop or tablet and cast to your Smart TV
