I've been running Sing and Sign classes in this area since 2005. Before this I signed with both my children and we all experienced the benefits of 'talking with our hands!'
I started signing many years ago when I took evening classes in BSL. I used the animal signs with my daugher Megan when she was 8-9 months old and was amazed at how quickly she picked them up. A few years later a friend introduced me to Sing and Sign via the DVD and I was hooked ! I soon gave birth to my son Jon and signed with him from birth. At 5/6months he was signing for his milk !!!!! We had many conversations with our hands and I thoroughly enjoyed this early communication with my little boy.
I thoroughly enjoy teaching Sing and Sign and I have families coming back to class with their second and third child now, which just shows how much they value signing in class. Its great to have the older siblings in class too, showing off their signing skills.
One of my parents said she has so much more respect for babies as she now realises just how much they understand. Another said that sing and sign is such a fun way to 'talk' to her daughter and couldn't believe that we seem to have a song for every occasion!
If you would like any further information, please email me as above.

NETMUMS BEST PRE-SCHOOL CLASS IN THE SOUTH OF DEVON!
Such a fun way to 'talk' to your child
Classes are very relaxed and good fun! We keep class sizes small (around 11 per class) so you and your baby can enjoy the social aspect of class.
Babes classes are for pre 6 months babies and last about 30 minutes. This programme encourages good attention skills and eye contact. We also concentrate on the value of repetition, anticipation, praise and the use of facial expression. These essential elements build the framework for good communication; using our magic ingredient of music!
Stage 1 and 2 We sing and sign for approximately 40 minutes with social time after.
As a general rule, Stage 1 classes are great for babies aged from 6/7mths upwards. Stage 2 classes are most appropriate for babies who have attended at least one term of stage 1, and who will be around 14mths+ at the start of term(exceptions apply, please contact me if you are unsure!).
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 pick up whilst wandering!) When Jessie Cat, instruments or the prop 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.
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!
You will receive weekly handouts via email, which recap what we have learned in class.
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, cheque or online.

Does your child attend a nursery?
Sing and Sign now 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.
Local Nurseries which have enjoyed Sing and Sign Affiliation are listed above.
