    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!!

    Our Sing and Sign schedule for Summer 2020 looks like this:-

    There is a free car park on site. The Drummond room can be accessed directly from the small car park as you approach the building. Further parking can be found on the other side.

    There are a few steps up to the room, once inside the door, so buggies may be best left in the reception area, accessed at the front of the building.

    Stage 2 :  9.30 a.m. - 10.30 a.m.

    Stage 1 :  10.30 a.m. - 11.30 a.m.


    St Margaret's Parish Centre, Horsforth

    (Taught by Philippa)

    There is a small free car park in the Church Grounds, and free on street parking. The room is upstairs, so you may find it easier to use a baby carrier/sling rather than a buggy/car seat.

    Stage 1 : 10.00 a.m. - 11.00 a.m.

    Stage 2 : 11.00 a.m. - 12.00 noon

    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 6 months old up to around 14/15 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 14/15+ months, moving about and probably starting to talk (although every baby is different, so there's no hard and fast rule!) as it is more active and interactive.  Themes include weather, opposites, colours and the phonetic alphabet, together with simple counting songs, turn taking, sharing and of course, lots of fun!


    The 10 week Stage 1 and 2 courses cost £65 per family (no extra charge for multiple birth families).

    Our Babes classes run in 5 week courses and costs £30 per family (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.


    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:-

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

    Philippa has attended classes with both her children, who have loved Sing and Sign. She is thrilled to be able to teach classes herself now.

    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.


    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.
