Sing and Sign baby signing classes in... Portsmouth, Hedge End, Fareham

  • About Me

    Welcome to Sing and Sign Portsmouth and Fareham!

    Hi, I'm Tracy and I run Sing and Sign in Portsmouth, Fareham and the surrounding areas. 

    I started Sing and Sign classes when my eldest daughter was 5 months old. She loved the music and Jessie Cat was a firm favourite. As a family we began signing as much as we could with our daughter and the results were fantastic! Initially, she was able to understand us better and then once she started to sign herself, the joy in her face, when she could tell that she was making herself understood, was magic!

    I firmly believe that not only did signing mean we avoided the potential tantrums, due to the frustration of not being understood, but that her speech developed earlier as a result. When my second daughter came along, the whole family signed along with her, having already seen the benefits with my eldest. It was lovely to watch my two little girls being able to communicate with each other.

    Having seen the benefits of Sing and Sign first hand, I was keen to help other families enjoy similar experiences, so became a Sing and Sign teacher. I currently teach Sing and Sign two days a week and the rest of the week I work in schools across Southampton as part of their language Intervention team, supporting children with their speech, language and communication needs.

    About Our Classes

    BOOK NOW

    Good news! We are returning to our lovely venues for live classes starting 27th April 2021! Don't worry though, for those that cannot make it to class we still have our fabulous Sing and Sign @HOME course, which can be enjoyed at home.


    More about our Stages...

    Babes is for 0-6 months and is a gentle, sensory class, designed to focus on the key elements of good communication with babies, such as eye contact, repetition and anticipation. We also start to use some initial signing. This is all done through music, using songs, instruments, toys and props.


    Stage 1 is for around 6-14 months. Each week we introduce a new theme, for example, bath time, then look at signs that are associated with the theme. This is a fully interactive class using simple, catchy songs to help parents remember the signs and give the babies a whole lot of fun, using instruments, props and toys. Each week you will be sent an email handout, to remind you of the key signs of the week.


    Stage 2 is for around 14-24 months. As with Stage 1, we introduce a different theme each week, progressing to letters using phonics and colours amongst many others. We also focus more on social skills, encouraging babies to share and use manners. This is a lively class, where babies are not only signing, but now starting to fully use their voices too. Each week you will be sent an email handout, to remind you of the key signs of the week.

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.
