    Hi my name is Josie! Baby signing has been such an incredible gift to me and my family, and I am so passionate about it, having reaped the benefits with my own children. 

    The feeling you get when your baby signs to you to let you know what they want is unbelievable and the fact that they can communicate with you before they can speak is truly amazing!!

     Summer term Covid adjustments: Some practical info for our venue based classes:
    • You will be given a Sing and Sign course pack in your 1st class which will include 2 shakers, a coloured scarf and a board book, all popped in a Sing and Sign tote bag for you to keep and bring each week.
    • We will have spaces laid out on the floor 2 metres apart, so please bring your own blanket to sit on.
    • We will be using backing tracks to support our classes with reduced live singing, but just as much facial expression and signing!
    • Please keep 2 metres apart when entering and exiting the building whilst wearing a face mask.
    • Masks may be removed once you are seated in the class.
    • The teacher will wear a clear face visor during the class.
    • We will provide hand sanitiser upon entering the room and will be cleaning frequently touched areas between classes like door handles etc.
    • Toilets and baby changing facilities will be available and cleaned regularly.

    Which class should I attend?

    Sing and Sign Babes is a gentle music and sensory class with a strong emphasis on communication. Our classes are open to babies from birth or as soon as you feel you would like to get out with your baby and enjoy some music together.  This lovely class explores themes such as eye contact, gesture and anticipation together with lots of cuddles, tickles and some simple signs.  All building the framework for good communication and brought to you using our magic ingredient - music!

    Sing and Sign Stage 1 is ideal for babies from 5 months old up to around 18 months old and their parent/carer.  Themes include basic signs, nappies & bath time, emotions & bedtime.  You'll learn over 100 signs related to your routines and also the sort of things your baby may be interested in, such as animals and vehicles.

    Sing and Sign Stage 2 is great when your little one is 16+ months, moving about and probably starting to talk (although every baby is different, so there's no hard and fast rule!).  Themes include weather, opposites, colours and the phonetic alphabet, together with simple counting songs, and of course, lots of fun!

    Cost

    The 10 week @HOME Stage 1 and 2 courses cost £50 per family (no extra charge for multiple birth families), and includes an annual subscription to the Jessie Cat club- a years access to our fantastic supporting resources.

    The 10 week face to face stage 1 and 2 courses cost £75. This includes access to the @home content.

    Our Babes classes run in 5 week courses and costs £35. (no extra charge for multiple birth families).

    PLACES ARE RESERVED ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED BASIS.  If classes have a low number of bookings at the start of term, they may be cancelled.  We will let you know as soon as we can if this is the case by email.


    TEACHERS 

    To help me teach all of these classes, I have a great team who are all experienced baby signers and are also very passionate about Sing and Sign.  Let me introduce them:-

    Josie has used baby signing with all 4 of her children- her youngest is at the height of her own signing right now! She loves being able to share this skill with other families and helping them benefit too.

    Kat has attended classes with her son and is really passionate about Sing and Sign as she has seen the benefits in communication at home.

    Laura has been coming to classes since her son was only a few weeks old! As a linguist, she is particularly interested in the long term benefits of supporting early communication through baby sign.

    SING AND SIGN IN LOCAL NURSERIES

    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, or contact us at the number/email above.
