Sing and Sign baby signing classes in... South Lanarkshire and Glasgow South
Welcome to Sing and Sign for South Lanarkshire and Glasgow South
Hi! I'm Amanda and I run Sing and Sign classes in South Lanarkshire and Glasgow South! I am mum to Chloe, who is 8. Chloe and I attended Sing and Sign classes when she was around 8 months old and it's from here that our love of Sing and Sign began.
We quickly established the benefit that the classes had in Chloe being able to tell me what she wanted before she could even speak. The excitement of sharing a mutual understanding of a sign was so special. It wasn't long before Chloe could speak and I truly believe that Sing and Sign played a vital part in her development. Chloe also met her wee bestie 'Emily' through classes, safe to say their favourite signs when we went for lunch afterwards were 'milk' and 'more'!
Jessie and I have really missed you over the last few months of lockdown so we are SUPER excited to be bringing live venue classes back to you this term! The booking system for next term is now open.

P.S. We've had to make some tweaks to our teaching programme due to government guidelines so there will be limited singing. I will be inviting anyone who books a place to join me for a free zoom session where I will demonstrate how the class will work. Classes are still going to be so much fun! You will also receive your very own 'props' bag to bring along to class xx

How much do classes cost?
@HOME classes are £40 for a 10 week block. Included in this is a weekly (optional) zoom session with me.
Venue classes are £68 for a 10 week block. Included in this is 10 weekly sessions in a venue and access to weekly @HOME material - no weekly zoom session is offered in this option. You will also receive your very own Jessie Cat props back to bring to class with some instruments and colourful scarves!
What is class like? Is it easy to learn signing?
Classes are fun and we use music as our special ingredient to help parents, grandparents and carers to learn the signs easily!
Babes is a lovely gentle class which aims to build the foundations for good communication. The class is relaxed, gives you lots of time face to face with baby, plenty of cuddle time and is the perfect place to begin your baby signing journey.
Stage 1 and 2 classes last 45 minutes to 1 hour with teaching time of around 30-40 minutes and up to 15 minutes for questions and discussion or just a natter after!
We use a mixture of specially written and traditional songs and rhymes along with pictures, toys, props and baby instruments in a regular format that the babies soon get familiar with! And we have our playful special friend,Jessie Cat for peek-a-boo and kisses and cuddles!
Each 10 week course has been carefully designed to gradually build a vocabulary of signs important in you and your baby's world and appropriate for their age and their development level.

Looking forward to welcome you to class!
