    • ABOUT ME
    • I discovered the beauty of Sing and Sign after reading about it and then starting classes with my now 6 year old daughter back in 2016. Aside from me and my daughter absolutely loving the classes, what it taught us both was invaluable. Giving her the capacity to tell me what she wanted, how she was feeling and to talk about animals to me (her absolute passion!) but with her hands, was magical. Enabling me to actually understand what she was trying to tell me before she could utter a word was an incredible and hugely helpful experience and one I wanted to continue, hence why I became a teacher as soon as I possibly could and now run 10 classes a week!

    What can I expect from Greenwich, Lewisham, classes

    GREENWICH & LEWISHAM CLASSES

    Our classes are open to a maximum of 11/12 babies per class, at our discretion.  Classes are approximately 45 minutes long, although you need to allow for it to be up to an hour for a relaxing  (but prompt!) start and finish to the class. We don't chuck you out immediately!   Terms last for 10/11 classes and start in January, April/May and September.  

    COST/PAYMENT  

    The cost for the term for both stage 1 & 2 will be £110 this includes 'gold' membership.  The cost for twins is first child full price, second child half and only one membership is required so cost for twins would be £150 .  We don’t offer refunds for missed classes or for going on holiday half way through the term.

    WHAT ARE THE CLASSES LIKE?

    Our classes follow the same structure every week, which is something that the babies soon learn to recognise and respond to very positively. It helps them enormously to know/anticipate what's going to happen next.  We introduce new signs each week and we then "spiral learn", so that signs and songs are repeated throughout the term so that you have a fair crack at learning all the songs and signs you wish to.  Our classes include an Introductory Song, A Warm Up session, Signs of the Week, a puppet (from Week 3 onwards), instruments, More Signs (including a recap of previous signs learnt) and a Toy Bag, closing with our "Time to go home" song.  Babies (and sometimes parents and carers!) usually take 2-3 weeks to become familiar with the class structure and the teacher, after which they become increasingly confident and interactive as they learn what to expect. We don't accept new enrolments after week 3 of the term, because the groups have settled and found their unique vibe and the new families often feel like they've missed too many classes and always feel like the "new girls". It's really great fun and we spend time each week individually with you and your baby and making absolutely sure that every baby is involved in the class. 

    OUR TEACHERS ARE 100% COMMITTED TO YOU

    All of our teachers are passionate about baby signing and are very experienced baby signing mummies. We are also passionate about getting to know the families who choose to attend our classes. We all feel it's a privilege for us to get to know so many lovely babies and toddlers (without having to be their mums!).  That's why we have such a high return/renewal rate 

    CAN MY FRIEND COME TOO?

    Yes!  If you have a friend/s with a baby, who may be interested in attending our classes, please ask them to book direct.  Places are only available only by booking in advance, not just turning up on the day.

  • Nurseries

    Sing and Sign working within a Nursery

    We currently are working with Smartinees Nursery in Greenwich.

    As a project the staff wished that we taught regular classes on a fortnightly basic within their baby room.

    The age range is from 8 months to around 17/18 months which is quite a range but we have been able to adapt our curriculum to suit the group.

    The benefits have been enormous as the staff are now using the signs to help mainly with babies with English as a second language with their routine and settlement into the nursery as well as having fun with the songs.
