       A BIT ABOUT ME:

    I loved signing with Zak, initially just holding his attention (finally!) with the BABES songs learnt, then came the excitement of his first sign 'no' at 9 months and by 15 months  communicating easily with many signs - easing frustration for us both!

    The glimpse into his thoughts was also wonderful - signing 'mouse' when hearing a gate squeak, or 'listen' and 'bird' to let me know he could hear them outside and too many others to write here! Then words came through fast and by 20 months stringing small sentences together. Now the talking just doesn't stop....

    Our weekly outing to Sing and Sign became more than just another parent and baby/toddler class - and 'Jessie Cat' is still a firm favourite!

    I'm now expecting our second child and can't wait to sign all over again - this time with Zak to help me. :) 


    BEING A SIGN AND SIGN TEACHER

    Our wonderful baby signing experience inspired me to teach and I feel privileged to share this magic with other families. It is so rewarding hearing a parent's excitement about their baby's signing... Then wonderful to see the babies signing in class!

    Gemma also teaches classes and has her own Sing and Sign experience to draw from. Her babies are now 9 and 7 but they love singing the songs even now and Jessie Cat still has a special place in their home!

    Please feel free to email me with your questions.

    I hope and look forward to meeting you and your little one in a class soon.

    Happy signing!

    About Our Classes

    Our classes are carefully designed to build babies communication through our three developmentally age appropriate groups from 0-24 months, all taught through music and fun:

      BABES for pre-crawlers up to 6 months can be started as soon as mummies feel ready to be out and about and taking part in activities. A lovely gentle sensory and music class to introduce signing, with the main focus on building the framework for good communication rather than signs. We encourage lots of eye contact and face to face time between baby and you using songs and games appropriate for our tiniest group of babies!

      From 5-6 months is a good time to start focusing on signs and STAGE 1 teaches all the core signs to enable the two way conversation between baby and you before speech. We don't just teach lots of signs as knowing signs alone is not enough to reap the benefits of baby signing. You receive guidance on how to use the signs effectively to ensure your baby signing journey with your precious little one is successful. The signs used are completely appropriate for baby's developmental age and they are built on gradually each week to make it manageable for you.

      Our more active STAGE 2 class from 13-14 months reinforces Stage 1 basics whilst introducing advanced signs and concepts to attempt to keep up with toddlers growing curiosity.

      Classes are for 1 hour and we Sing and Sign for approximately 45 minutes (30 minutes in BABES) followed by social and play time with refreshments and toys.


      Each class is £5 and payable in advance for the full course:

      BABES for 5 weeks (£25 or pro rata for remainder of term).

      STAGE 1 & 2 for 10 weeks (£50 or pro rata for remainder of term).



      You commit to the full term to promote consistency of learning and ensure success with baby signing, with weekly handouts to support you. We keep class sizes small (8 in babes and 12 for Stage 1&2) for quality of learning so spaces are limited and pre-booked. Visit the online booking system to reserve your baby's space now:
