Sing and Sign baby signing classes in... Hitchin, Stevenage & Letchworth
Hi! My name is Emily and I run Sing and Sign classes in Hitchin & Letchworth.
I started signing with my first child, Dan, in 2005 and found it fantastically useful. Dan had so much to say but verbally wasn't quite there yet, so signing allowed us to talk to each other and show each other things. It was great for telling me when he was hungry or thirsty (sadly never tired though!), and helped avoid many a meltdown. I had such a wonderful time of it with Alex teaching us, that it cemented my desire to continue with my other two children, Jack and Phoebe.
The classes are very informal and there is no need for children to sit still and be taught. They are welcome to move around and get involved using the instruments and toys! Booking is very easy using the website link, but classes do fill up quickly as places are limited per session. Book your next term early to avoid missing out. If you’re interested but it’s still a bit early for your baby to come, do please join my waiting list, and you will receive ongoing information on events and an invitation to book when your child is of age.

I really hope to meet you soon!
You are very welcome to bring older siblings to class with no extra charge, but I do ask that they sit quietly and let the babies enjoy their class.
If you are bringing twins, you do not have to pay for both of them. I understand how hard it must be to have to buy two of everything, so at Sing and Sing it's just one payment.
Sing and Sign Venues
All Sing and Sign venues have been chosen as they are child friendly and easily accessible.
If you are interested in a small group of friends getting together to learn Sing and Sign, I am also very happy to run groups from people's homes.
I am now enrolling for the summer term start April 24th 2017. The time table below reflects the classes for this summer term. Please note if there are less than 4 places booked in a future class I reserve the right not to run it but will endeavour to find you an alternative. In all cases should a class not run you have booked and paid for, a complete refund will be given. Bank holiday classes missed will be arranged by discussion in class at a majoritively convenient date.

Sing and Sign in Local Nurseries
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.
