Thank you for enquiring about Sing and Sign classes!

Sing and Sign classes are the FUN way to learn baby signing!
Classes are designed to keep your little one entertained whilst you learn signs which will help you understand each other!
Is your baby 'hungry'? Do they want to go 'home' can they see a 'bird'?
Without signing, communication (and parenting!) can be a guessing game which leads to frustration on both sides.
By implementing just a few signs at home you will be amazed at how much your baby can tell you!
Classes are available in 3 Stages which are defined by the age of your little one.
*Babes* 0-6 Months
*Stage 1* 6-14 Months
*Stage 2* 14-24 Months
Each stage of Sing and Sign has been developed by experts to support your child's natural development. Learning to sign is VERY easy & lots of fun!

Your Sing and Sign Teachers
Jess has signed with her two daughters and, as a family, it allowed them to communicate with each other early on. “I loved that I'd found a class which combined music with something so useful, while also giving us the chance for a play and a chat after each class. It was so exciting seeing their signs develop, allowing them to communicate both their interests and needs." Following on from this experience, Jess has trained to run her own Sing and Sign baby signing classes and her lovely manner and passion for signing comes across in the sessions. She is a former primary school teacher and has taught children from different backgrounds, with different needs. She also runs a toddler group in town. She enjoys music and when she's not sewing and gets the chance, plays the piano.
Hi, I'm Jude I run Sing and Sign in South Warwickshire and teach classes in Southam, Leamington & Wellesbourne
This is me with my little boy Max. We starting signing with Max when he was 6 months old and he picked it up straight away. As a family signing has been such an integral part of our lives. Max rarely cried as he could sign for exactly what he wanted. Our favourite sign was 'help' which he would sign to us every time he couldn't reach something from the toy box or he had dropped his spoon at dinner time!
Not only has it helped Max communicate to us, we have been able to educate Max about so much, through signing.
I truly believe that signing is the best tool you can give your child and Sing and Sign classes offer learning for the grown ups too, which helped keep my brain active in a time when I could barely keep up with the day of the week!

Additional Family members & siblings
Family Members: We do welcome other family members as visitors in classes to see a one-off class. Grandparents, partners etc. Please ask BEFORE you bring family members with you. It can easily become uncomfortably over-crowded if many parents decide to bring a family member with them.
Older siblings: We will always make every effort to accept older siblings into classes. If you intend to bring an older sibling to your class, please inform us at the time of booking. In very rare circumstances we may have to decline this offer or limit numbers and this will only be because of health and safety concerns where space is limited. (In the case of numbers being limited, sibling places will be accepted on a first come first served basis) Please note that your children remain your responsibility at all times and parents must be alert to their children's behaviour and safety, especially in terms of the younger babies and that your teacher will approach you if she feels it is not working out.
Mobile Phones: Whilst we understand that it's not feasible for everyone to turn off their phones fully during class time, we would kindly request that they are muted or turned on to airplane mode for the duration of the class.
Answering a call or even a phone ringing is very distracting and will instantly ruin the momentum of a class.
Please respect your fellow class mates and step out of the class room if your call is urgent.
Eating: We kindly ask that during class times there be no food consumption.
For the health and safety of all our children, please consider that allergies are common and can be very serious.
We understand that children will get hungry, in which case we ask that snacks only be produced at the end of the lesson, during the coffee break.
At any point during class you are welcome to feed your baby milk or a drink.
Whilst we don't wish to upset anyone regarding snacks, the safety of the children is always our top priority.
At the end of each class a 15 minute break is provided at which point we can allow eating.
This clear guideline is aimed to help parents have a choice as to when their children are exposed to food stuffs.
We ask that all relevant medical information be provided at time of booking, this includes allergies and conditions that may cause concern during your lesson.
Conduct: In the extreme case were the conduct of an adult caregiver (parent, grandparent, childminder etc) is felt to be threatening or in any way detrimental to the smooth running of the class, you may be removed from the class without notice or reimbursement.
The safety of the children and their carers is our top priority and we have a zero tolerance for aggravating behaviour. Incidents will be reported to the management of the venue which may restrict your future visits.
I really hope that you will be delighted with your experience of Sing and Sign classes. I am absolutely committed to you finding that your class meets or exceeds your expectations and that you enjoy your classes enough to recommend Sing and Sign to all your friends!
However, sometimes things might go wrong and I would like to hear about it. Please do get in touch if you have a complaint or concern. I will always do my best to resolve any problems as quickly as possible and to everyone's satisfaction. If there is any aspect of the course/classes that you are unsure about, please don't be too shy to ask!

Sing and Sign in Childcare
Does your child attend a nursery?
Sing and Sign 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.
